    Kansas won't let you hunt hogs? What are they afraid of? That you might be shooting all the domestic hogs that are up there? I remember riding my motorcycle through Iowa a few years ago and coming down into the small valley between the rolling hills and being quickly assaulted by the smell of hog feeder lots. I suspect Kansas has its share also...

    Nothing short of an explosive devise will make up for poor marksmanship. While yes a slug from a 20ga (at the proper range) will give you a slight bit more margin for error, NO firearm can make up for a bad shot placement short of a shotgun using double 00 buck and even then you still have to aim fairly well for a clean kill.

    Shot this wild boar hog with my .357 Ruger GP100 6" revolver tonight at 25 yards from a tripod stand. 158 gr. Hornady XTP HP bullet. Hog was around 300lbs. Ran 30 yards and fell in the brush. We could not find a bullet hole and the hog did not bleed. Only thing we can figure is the flesh and fat sealed the bullet hole, and it was a heart or spinal cord shot.
