My cousin wants to go hog hunting during small game season on wma's. Right now the only firearm he owns and can useis a Mossberg 500 12ga. The Georgiaregulations state the following for small game season:
Shotguns: Any having shot shell size 3.5
inches or smaller in length with No. 2 or
My question is this - If he uses #2 shot will that be OK for hog hunting (as in will it kill them?) He is planning on using #2 Hevi-Shot 3inch Magnums with a Carlson's Hevi-Shot dead coyote choke tube. Surely Hevi-Shot #2 on a hog with a head-shot would kill it. Hevi-Shot makes a #2 in Steel and Non-Steel - which would you use?
Has anyone ever killed a hog with #2 shot on a WMA? He would use a rifle, but due to acouple of reasons he can't etc... So shotgun is his only hope.
What are your thoughts - if anyone has a pic of a hog shot with #2 that would be a plus to see as well.
*NOTE* that a shotgun is the only option he has right now due to health reasons.
Thanks in advance for any input.
