Re: Question regarding firearms and hunting
In Mississippi, hogs are in season during whatever other season is open. In other words, right now is squirrel and archery deer therefore, you can kill as many hogs as you want with those weapons. Lots of folks here hunt hogs with 22s, as long as you get a head shot, in the ear and eye area. The guy whose lease I'm going out on dropped one a few weeks ago in its tracks. I don't know if one shot would be enough on a large boar (300lbs+) but on the smaller sows, I'm told its plenty. I'm just trying to figure out how to get more than one shot if I can.... hogs aren't dumb, the encounter rate is just really high.
