Default Hog Hunting Weapons

There are as many good rifles, shotguns, and bows to hunt hogs as there are to hunt deer. I just wanted to know what everyones' favorite hog medicine is. Mine, as with most other North American game is in my signature and my avatar.

Browing Avalance 11, 72 pound drawweight, 30 inch draw length fires a 125 grain Grim Reaper broadhead, with carbon express 300 arrows at 275 foot a second... or sometimes for old times sake I take the old Jennings Buckmaster same set up, just a little slower, but hits the mark.
You got to get up close and personal.... Dead hog walking!

I use some ole trusty Montec broadheads and blackhawk arrows to do the deed with.....the one in my avatar went right at 300lbs, he is -was the biggest wild hog I have ever seen, he now graces my wall in my trophy room...

A good pack of dogs and my hands are the preferred way here. Catch and tie about 90% of them and stick a few.

my hog gun is a Win. 94 Trapper in 44mag with a 2-7 simmons with see through rings. it's great for close up hogs and others out to 100 or so yards. it holds 11 and has plenty of power for em.

i'm planning on trying to hunt them with my bow but haven't gotten around to it yet.
