A buddy wants to go out hog hunting and invited me to go. I know nothing about hunting other than to shoot the critter to make it dead. Other than that I am totally clueless!

I have a 16" M4gery that I plan on using. What ammo should I use for that? I imagine my plinking ammo (62gr Wolf) is not the best for this application.

How do I dress a hog? What should I do with the meat? What parts are good anyway?

Where do I aim on it?

How close should I try to get? How far is too far to try a shot?

What should I wear? BDU's or something else?

What else should I know?

I'm really clueless here and dont want to look like an idiot in the field!

Step one, post in the hunting forum.

Ammo: Surplus M193 or Q1313A has been proved to be an effective pig killer. I also believe a commerical hunting bullet (60 grains or heavier, the lighter bullets may be too explosive) should give you the penetration you require. I'd leave Wolf at home.


Clothing: Check if there are any hunting regulations, as a minimum amount of blaze or dayglo orange. I doubt this is the case. Dress for a hike, dress for the conditions, be prepared for it to get colder than you think. Being cold isn't fun.


Taking the shot: Aim for behind the shoulder to put one through the vitals. If you have a guide/experienced friend, ask for his advice on shot placement. Im no pig expert, but a blown up heart makes any critter dead. Take shots at ranges you KNOW you can place it where it is needed. Don't try to test your newfound long range shooting skills in the field.

Cleaning: Claim ignorance and make your friend do it. Offer to hold the light if its after dark.

It is a law during the deer gun season.

Be honest with your buddy, ask him what he recommends. If you go in posing your going to embarrass yourself.

that's the attitude that gets someone killed... DO NOT POST ONE MORE TIME UNTIL YOU HAVE ATTENDED A HUNTER SAFETY COURSE. I for one will not hunt with anyone who hasn't I'm willing to bet you need a hunter safety card to get a hog permit in Florida anyway. It will be educational for you and keep you legal.

I'll be lone person to agree with you. It probably is required to even get a hunting license, it is in Texas if you are born after Sept of '71. You can get a 1 lifetime deferrment then it is required. Hey you might just learn something, you never know.

Nothing worse then getting glassed by some fat slob weekend warrior thru his scope with a round in the chamber. I prefer for people NOT to see me.
Camo - move slow - know your 360



Take a hunters safety course.

Advice for new hunters, I have only 2 samll requests.

1. Clearly indentify target.

2. Clearly identify backdrop.

Otherwise just follow your buddies lead, and I'm sure you'll get some good advice from here. Just remeber to be safe and respectful, have fun.

Semper Paratus.

The guy obviously knows something about firearms which is more than most people who have passed the hunter's safety course know.

The course is a fucking joke. They don't teach much of anything about firearms safety. I, for one, would much rather someone know how to handle a firearm than to have passed a course that any moron can pass.
