It couldn’t be done, I was told. It shouldn’t be tried, the internet bellowed. We are talking about dangerous game, of course. In this case, we were even returning to the same location where we’d taken four hogs weighing in at 150-350 pounds each, one with some serious tusks. One 250 pounder became enraged as we opened fire and charged us.
Don’t go there, I’d been warned. You need bigger bullets, someone said. But Jared Hilton, my hunting partner that day, and I had already gone against the grain. We’d hunted with the lowly .223. We’d been advised it was questionable on deer, foolish on the insanely tough hogs in the 150 pound plus category. Yet, that hog plowed the field before we were in any real danger. Black rifle, 4, Hogs 0. Armed with stats like that, could we be blamed for getting closer to the edge of tactical hog hunting? And what if we got it on video?
