How is the Boar hunting in the West coast, particularly California?

Looking to get into boar hunting.

Do I need dogs?

Took the boys out for a while today. Loaded up Hunter, Titan and Geronimo and took them out for a little R and R. Hunter got his penicillion and topical already along with an asprin. Titan and Geronimo didn't get hurt and Hunter just has a cut on the thigh. all in all a pretty good day and got pork for plenty of chily verde. This is Central Ca about 40 mi east of Fresno.

Hello,

I have a few WebPages with hog hunting maps to help new hunters get started in Central California. These are well known hunting spots, so expect plenty of company.

Here is my URL: http://www.geocities.com/trail_cam/

I was searching the Net for information about shotgun slugs, and found this forum. Maybe you guys can help me?

What happened is my junior hunter, who is age 15, shot a boar with his new Rossi 20 Gauge Rifled Slug Gun. We were using the Remington Slugger 2-¾ 5/8 oz Hollow Point Rifled Slugs, and the slug splattered sideways & glanced off the pig. I will try to post a picture of the wound, but if it doesn’t appear in this message, here is the URL:

The pig was uphill from us at about a 30 degree angle, out at about 50 yards, and shot from behind at about a 10 degrees from dead-on. That means that the slug spattered sideways as it hit the pig from an upward direction.

Any suggestions for a better factory loaded slug will be greatly appreciated;

Richard

I sent an e-mail to Remington with a picture of my boy’s wounded pig. I asked them what sabot slug do they recommend for Wild Pigs? The Copper Solid, Buck Hammer, or Core-Lokt?

They recommend the Remington Core-Lokt Ultra Bonded Sabot Slugs. Here is the link that they gave me:

http://www.remington.com/products/ammun ... _sabot.asp

I noticed that the 12 Gauge is only 385-gr, and the 20 Gauge 260-gr. Guess a higher velocity smaller sabot will do the job better than a large heavy weight slug?

Any thoughts? Richard
