    If you were here in southern SC, in the swamps, you'd have a couple of grenades handy... been treed by a couple of monsters

    I've been thinking about going boar hunting for the first time. I've actually never hunted, and I hate those suckers. I have a Swiss K-31 (7.55x55) that is chambered in essentially a .308. Does the Swiss round have enough knockdown power to take a boar, or do I need to beef it up a bit?

  6. Shot placement. I hunt with 357 mag. Love it. Horse back is neat as getting on your knees and crawling through thickets to get to them. A young sow will taste the best.

    .308 is more than adequate. I've taken wild boar with .22 mag.

    The way I've always seen people do it is put a platform in the back of a truck, park it in the brush and wait. Kind of like a mobile "tree stand", and if it runs you can chase it.

    BTW, in case you don't know, boars are pretty fierce fighters with those tusks, so watch out.
