1. Browning BAR ShorTrac Hog Stalker
In 1917 John Moses Browning designed the Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR), and since its killed more enemies of America than just about anything else.
It served our men in every major conflict from World War I to Vietnam, and so sporting versions of it should be all the pig gun American hunters need. But the new BARwhile similar in nature to its combative brotherhas undergone major changes to make it ideal in the pig woods.
Brownings BAR ShorTrac Hog Stalker is a 10-round semi-auto .308 rifle that feels more like your deer rifle than an AR-15.

Winchester Model 94 .30-30 will work on a hog.
Don’t forget the $10K to $15K night vision scope!
Remington Model 760 in 30-06 with 18 1/2 in. bbl.
Louder than heck but it works when little piggie is coming at you wif’ all his toofies on parade.
Ditto on the 30-30.
I have that in .44. Might be my most favorite rifle.
Always wanted a Model 94 or Marlin 336, but I settled for a cherry condition Western Field 30-30(Marlin 336) a buddy sold me for $200 last year.
E Lew’s Helicopter Pig Hunt
12 games pump with slugs works well to, depending on the ranges. I love that old discontinued Ruger 44, but had on jam up on me boar hunting. Only time in my life it gave me trouble, and I suspect it was ammo. 300 gr handloads - I think they might might have been government.
RPG-7 or a Minigun would work fine...
Will work but I know a guy who got treed by a hog and had a 30-30. All he could get was a shot at the top of its head, and the 30-30 didn’t penetrate the skull.
AR-10 is good for volume discounts.

how long would it take buffalo bill to laugh you outta your boots and call you rosie if he heard you talking about puttin a scope on a winchester ?
Since I don’t have to really pay for it, a nice grade Holland and Holland in .375 H&H mag. Anything more powerful would kick too much.
I could get by with my Yugo Mauser in 8mm using fmj surplus ammo.
Basically any reliable repeater using powerful deep penetrating ammo.
Did Buffalo Bill hunt at night?
He used candles. /s
I’m old school, I’d use my 1938 Savage 99 takedown in .300 Savage.

I have a scope on raised mounts on my lever gun. It’s the perfect brush buster.
