No I'm completely serious :what: by some retarded quirk of Arkansas laws the only legal method to take hogs in the WMA I wish to hunt is with a rimfire not larger than .22

So for wild pigges up to 300lbs what .22lr load would you guys recommend

a CCI stinger, never have hunted wild hogs but from what I have read they will charge. I woudl think I woudl want to place a very well placed shot right into it's ear canal and take out it's brain. But like I said I have never hunted them.

I'd say a solid in the 40 grain range. Not that I would want to do it.

I'd be carrying an autoloader so you can pump the beast full of lead just before you die. Are they insane?! A .22LR?!

I hunted a hog with a Colt 1911, .45 ACP. I assure you...never again! And that was 230 grains!

Hmmmm.....
CB caps, or subsonik shorts, but they must be hollowpoints, so they have proper expansion, drive clean through and transferr hydostaitic shock, killing them by liqufying their insides with a hit to the nose and such. The shoulder shot is actually best ..inna "Boiler maker" as Ive learned on this forum...Since all hogs are is gristl and snout, you should mount the Tail....ah,.. have it mounted..
Of course your gudie should back you up with his #4 bore, and .50 +P+ Magnum Pistol, 'case he charges you :rolleyes:



I'd do a .22mag,(:evil:) behind the ear or between the eye and ear, for a Temple shot.Thats what took down the largest Bear in Alberta in the 50's, and I think its your only "Sure kill" hope. Damngood luck to you, and honestly, I wish I were there, with my own Pump winchester 61.:D

krochus,

I think you can carry any centerfire, if it is legal for that particular season. So if deer season is open, anyting goes. I think. It is confusing. Which WMA is it? I'd call the Game and Fish commission. You probably already did.

Some of the regs are archaic/nonsensical.

I would NEVER try to hunt a pig with a .22.

If you do make sure you have at least a .357 mag with 180 grain for when the angry pig charges you. that or a shotgun.

For clarification and the benefit of non-Arkies, our Game and Fish Commission seems to have a burr under their saddle when it comes to wild hogs. Under Arkansas law, pigs are not game animals and therefore do not fall under the jurisdiction of the AG&FC. They are considered domestic animals. They can be hunted year-around.
This problem only arises when hunting them on public lands. If AG&FC controls access or manages the land in some way, they can get pretty restrictive on what firearms are allowed and when. Basically, they want to close any loophole which would allow a poacher hunting out of season to use teh "I was just hog hunting" excuse as an out. In reality, if these hogs were being hunted on private land, AG&FC couldn't do anything about it. They tried that about 8 or 10 years ago and it didn't work. Seems pig hunters get pretty riled up when people mess with them.
All of that beign said.....
Our Commissioners really do a great job of managing wildlife and listening to the hunting public for the most part.

And concerning the actual question... by all means, get a .22WMR if at all possible. A reliable semi-auto would be great if you can swing it, but they don't come cheap.

If all else fails, CCI MiniMag round nose for your long rifle. You will not need a hollow point to help expansion on a hog. That bullet will mushroom. Trust me. The stinger is only a 32 grain bullet. The MiniMag HP is a 36 gr. The MiniMag RN is a 40 grain, about the heaviest you can expect to readily find for a .22 rimfire. Heavy is good.

Plenty of Arkansas pigs have fallen to the .22LR. Just keep the distances short and don't expect to do any good with anything but a brain shot. Even if you punch one in the vitals, you will not have much blood for tracking and you do not want to walk up on an injured hog in a thicket when all you have is a .22 LR

Sounds like fun. Wish I was going too.

I seem to recall having read somewhere that you can just karate chop one, so if the .22 doesn't seem to be working break out the nunchucks.

rrflyer
January 3, 2009, 01:49 AM
the CCI velociters are copper plated and 40 grains. I believe they're 1800FPS plus.

Thats what I would go with.

Better get a 22 mag. Winchester fmj are my preferance as cci is a little weaker. Killed a lot of wild pigs with a .22 mag. I wouldn't shoot one with any .22 lr load on a dare. Be careful with your shot placement.

+1

I often hunt a large piece property where guns are limited to rimfires. Have killed a lot of hogs there with my Ruger 10/.22. I use the solid point bullets and try to put the bullet in the ear or on a line between the ear and the eye. Just keep on shooting until the squirming stops.

Last year I bought a model 93 Savage left hand bolt action in .22 magnum. It is sudden death on hogs using the CCI full metal jacket ammo.

which Arkansas do you live in? My game and fish commission views every license holder as a potential poacher what will do so when the first oppurtunity arises. For crying out loud you cannot predator hunt at night. That's like saying you cannot fish in the water.

Krochus, looks like private land is the best option. As near as I can tell, there are no caliber restrictions for hogs on private land:

Feral "Wild" Hog Hunting Season

Any open daytime hunting seasons or
special deer, elk or turkey permit hunts
Hunters may use the weapons allowed for that season or hunt. During special permit hunts, only permit holders may shoot or possess feral hogs. There is no bag limit, but shooters must have a hunting license and may not pursue hogs at night. Feral hogs may not be taken on WMAs with the use of dogs, bait or traps. Dead feral hogs may be removed from the WMA or left where they were shot.

krochus, I live in the white rock WMA, south of white rock montain. I have not seen any hogs or hog sign, nor heard of anyone having anything to do with hog hunting in the WMA. maybe norht of white rock there are some. I do know there are quite a few at chaffee though.

Dave1
January 3, 2009, 01:09 PM
Considering the WMA firearms restriction, I would suggest a scoped 22 mag rifle with the heavier 40 grain bullets. I like and use the Winchester Super-X 40 grain full metal jacket for the hog work I do. One of those thru the head/brain or shoulder will bring the animal down.

Practice with your gun and learn smooth trigger pull and precise shot placement for head/brain shots. Poor shot placement will likely result in a wounded and lost animal.

When attempting a head shot, the area between the eye and ear where the brain is located is what you are looking for (depending on the angle). A quick follow up shot, is always a good idea when hunting hogs with a 22.

Dave1

January 3, 2009, 01:18 PM
do you allready have H&Ks 4.6x30mm in the USA?
i still would not be comfortable with them against a hog, but better then a .22lr or WMR.

Myles
January 3, 2009, 01:50 PM
I prefer bow, .357 revolver, or my .375 Winchester.

However, I have hunted them twice with a rimfire. Once with a Winchester 9422 in .22WMR, and a second time with a single shot .22LR. (I am not counting working a hog farm, using a Ruger Bearcat loaded with CB caps to put a dying animal down.)

Make your shot into the brain pan; draw a mental line from the eye to the ear. Anywhere along that line will do it.

EDIT: To answer your original question - the load is a matter of what is most accurate for you and your rifle. I would prefer CCI Stingers, but honestly any load that you place along that line into the brain cavity will do it.

They state the use of centerfire cartridges not over .22 caliber. Would this not preclude the use of 0.222 Rem, 0.223 Rem, 22-250, etc?
Or am I missing something in those regs?
If possible then that should help at least somewhat. Would still take headshots.

Damn, I missed that, thanks stone coldy. Part of the problem is that the .22 centerfires would be illegal during the deer seasons. So as far as I can tell, a hog hunter would have to watch his P's and Q's calendar wise and caliber wise. Is this fair? As krochus pointed out the AGFC already deems the hunter guilty until proven innocent.

Suppose, I go out to a national forest to find some open space to test a load? Am I hunting or am I testing a handload? The game warden might confiscate my rifle and, heck, my truck, too. I was just shooting. His word against mine.

Krochus, I think I know where you're coming from.

yes the part where centerfire firearms comma OR rimfire larger than .22

the centerfire part is a seperate notion from the rimfire part of that regulation

that's how the law is applied though not necaccarly how it's written.....yeah I know they suck




on the other hand .22 centerfires are legal to deer and or hog hunt with if the season is in

In the eyes of the law you'd be a filthy stinkin lowlife poacher in the above situation. If the AGFC were smart they'd just ban .22mag because by their reasoning there could be no poachers then

Modern Gun
All modern guns may be used for deer hunting during modern gun season with the following exceptions. You may not use:

buckshot in a .410 shotgun.
shot smaller than No. 4 buckshot in any shotgun.
rimfire cartridges, military or full metal jacketed ammunition.
any centerfire rifle, pistol or revolver smaller than .22 caliber. handguns with barrels shorter than 4 inches. See illustration, right

+1 for the .22 magnum. I think the 10/22 even comes in .22 magnum and that wouldn't be a bad choice.


"which Arkansas do you live in? My game and fish commission views every license holder as a potential poacher what will do so when the first oppurtunity arises.."

That problem with law enforcement officers of all types is nationwide. The militarization of civil law enforcement agencies has been creeping upon We, the people for a long time but, since 9/11, the agencies have been running full-bore toward militarization. One of their goals is to destroy the "Presumption of Innocence" guaranteed by the Constitution and replace it with the "Presumption of Guilt" - and they are succeeding because most of We, the People are very foolishly presuming LEO agencies are on the up-and-up.

I just drove through Arkansas friday. Crossed the bridge at Memphis and took 79 to Stutgart and Texarkana. Beautiful drive even at this time of year. Somber to see so many Greenheads deceased along the roads. Had a great lunch in Camden! Plan on visiting Bayou Meteo on the return trip in May.:D

Well, I certainly don't mind learning anything. I guess I just assumed the minimum was .24.

Krochus, if you really feel strongly about it go to a meeting Tuesday night. I know a lot of people might not think the AGFC public meetings amount to much change, but I really think they are trying to make some real changes.

Not sure where you are exactly, but there will be meetings in Fayetteville, Mountain View, Fort Smith and Russellville. They'll be wildlife officers there too, and if you are nice about, I'd be willing to bet you all could have an honest conversation about "the presumption of innocence/guilt" issue.

22 lr IN THE EAR and they go down pretty well. Of course my experience with .22 and hogs is not exactly "in the wild". we'd trap and euthanize by .22 in the ear. worked very well there but then again, they weren't going to exact revenge if we messed it up. Good luck and try the hottest round you can get and don't miss.

I must say I am really surprised at the law... caliber and chances of injured animal are inversely proportional. Wait did I say I was surprised by a law? LOL nevermind, forgot who writes them for a moment.:neener:

Dr. Tad Hussein Winslow
January 4, 2009, 11:54 PM
Ummm, it's ".22 caliber", not ".22 long rifle" in the regulations. So of course you use a .22 magnum. The Winchester 50 grainers are the heaviest I know of - that'd do it right at the base of the ear - they're whizzing along at 2K+ from the muzzle.

351 WINCHESTER
January 5, 2009, 12:43 AM
Didn't know Winchester has a 50 grain .22 mag. I know Federal has one, but it's much lower than 2K.

That would be a good round if they could pull it off.

Dr. Tad Hussein Winslow
January 5, 2009, 01:43 AM
Hmmm, maybe I'm thinking of the Federal.

Now I see that the original problem is "solved". But the reality is that in OK, this IS the rule for feral hogs on public lands during any time EXCEPT regular deer gun season (when you can use your deer gun): Any rimfire OR shotgun BB shot or *smaller*.

qajaq59
January 5, 2009, 08:17 AM
If you are willing to wait for a perfect shot, and can hit exactly where you aim, I suppose it would work. But I sure wouldn't try a fast shot at a moving hog, or he's likely to come back and rip you apart. Wild hogs are nasty even when they aren't wounded.

First, see if you can get your hands on a 22 magnum. Second to that,
the two deepest penetrating 22 Long Rifle rounds available are the CCI Velocitor (40 gr HP @ 1435fps per CCI) and the much newer Aquila Interceptor (40 gr Solid at something like 1480 fps) I would go with the most accurate of the two and leave the lightwieght hyper velocity stuff at home. The 40 grainers might give you a little room for error in case you nick a skull bone. The super fragile LW's will likely just come apart and deeply anger the beast :fire: IMO, when it comes to headshots only (and this is such a case) I want the heaviest bullet I can get for penetrations sake.

I have been hunting hog for a while now, and I can tell you it is more dangerous then bear. I usually use SVD Druganov, FN, HK or RPK, and sometimes it takes few shots to finish the job. Hunting with a 22 is not that safe unless you can hit that hog right above the ear, but if you graze it, it will charge towards were the shot came. The good thing about them they taste really good :)

MarkChiarello
January 7, 2009, 08:51 PM
I am sure that a .22 can stop a hog with a good brain shot at close range.
But if your shot is less that perfect a .22 will not even slow down a charge. This may sound silly, but you should seriously consider a bayonet.

Better yet, can you use dogs and a knife. It would seem that the regulations allow it. In heavy cover I feel much safer with good dogs than with any firearm.

Sagetown
January 8, 2009, 12:59 AM
use any .22 lr w/ 40grain round nose bullet. The shot has to be perfect.

By placing the bullet where the lines cross in an imaginary 'X' drawn between the ears and eyes. They'll drop straight down every time.

But gettin a wild hog to stop and look at you long enough for you to get that perfect shot may not be good for your health.:)

Big Bill
January 8, 2009, 02:56 AM
Use a .22 Hornet or .204 Ruger (http://www.chuckhawks.com/204_ruger.htm). I don't see them specifying only .22 LR... You could also use a .17 HMR or a .220 Swift - right?

qajaq59
January 8, 2009, 08:14 AM
I'm a cautious guy at heart and I've shot a few wild hogs. Consequently if I were you I would wait until the season opened and get one with a 30-30, .308 or some other center fire. That way you'll have some idea of what a hog can really do when startled or wounded.

Then..... If you feel confident that you can shoot well enough to try it with a .22, you can hunt them off season. They really can be a dangerous animal under the right circumstances. If he moves just as you fire and then charges, you are not likely to stop him with the .22. It really isn't worth getting hurt just to get a hog. They may taste good, but nothing tastes good enough to spend a few weeks in a hospital!!

If you have a concealed weapons license in Arkansas, you can carry your pistol while hunting. You DO conceal a .44 magnum don't you? I'm not saying use it if it's illegal to use, but I'd feel a lot better having it to defend yourself with (from both 2 and 4 legged critters)

MCgunner
January 8, 2009, 01:08 PM
A bayonet for a charging hog? NOT ME, BUDDY! :rolleyes: I suppose Darwin will rule over this one. Big animals take big guns, period. I have a .308 and it's proven on hogs. .243 would work fine with a proper bullet. Anything that I'd use on a deer will stop a hog. Big ones can take a bit of penetration, proper bullet like a Barnes will solve that. I hunt squirrels with .22s. I don't hunt ANYthing with a bayonet. :rolleyes: I cut the bayonet lug off my SKS. All it was good for is grabbing every piece of brush I walked past. The SKS is my truck gun, sort of a semi auto .30-30.

I kill hogs year around down here. I do pick on the 200 lbers or less and my trap's size is small enough to discourage the monsters from going in. A 30 cal 140 Barnes X at 2800 fps will stop the biggest hog, though, if you put the bullet in the right place. Hog anatomy differs considerably from a deer, too. You have to know where to put the bullet.

I've never even thought about having to "defend myself" from a hog unless I shot it and had to blood trail it. A hog is NOT as dangerous as a bear, sorry, but it don't go around eating humans for food. A hog sees a human, he runs the other way. Oh, I had a sow charge me once when 4 of her piglets were in my trap and she was hanging around it. That was fun. LOL And, I blood trailed one once that was a poor hit and took it out in heavy cover with a .357 to the head. You ain't gonna get attacked just walking through the woods, though. Even Timothy Treadwell would be safe around 'em.

It always amazes me how some of these hog legends spread....:rolleyes:

gregormeister
January 8, 2009, 02:59 PM
Take your CCW just in case the 22. don't work and the hog threatens your life.....well...

In all honesty, growing up in a poor family I saw a variety of animals taken down with a 22. and though some of those were technically illegal hunts, the 22. will work when used with effective round placement.

Now that I'm older and a little better off then my folks were, I hunt mainly on my own, I use the legal firearms and walk a straight line, but if you do hunt hogs make sure the eye or ear is utilized as a target because a hogs skull is as thick as concrete.

I used to raise hogs in Snohomish WA in the 1980s and 1990s and pay someone to slaughter them.

Different guys would come around, but they almost all shot 22LR rifles square into the 250 pound pig's fore head.

A brain shot puts them down instantly. They may flop around, but they are down.

10% of the time, the bullet would glance off the skull, instead of penetrating.

Once a pig has had a 22LR glance off his head, he is much harder to get another shot at him.

When my mother was a girl in the 1920 and 1930s in Bristol VA, they had a guy come around with a 22LR and shoot the pigs at slaughter time. They were still raising pigs when we visited my grandparents in 1956.

January 13, 2009, 03:05 PM
I would switch to spear and use the .22 only for backup and mercy kills. For loadings use some round nose match ammo that penetrates well such as CCI.

Carry a 10mm handgun.

After you piss of the hog with the .22, yell, "It's comin right for us" and break out the 10mm.

Read through the regulations carefully. Here in Georgia we have the same type of thing. The regulations state that you can only use the weapons (for hogs since they are non game) that are legal for that particular season. Deer legal during deer season and small game weapons during small game season. The loophole that I found is that it states that all muzzle loaders are legal for small game. So I just carry my .54 cal muzzle loader.
