Do not click if you do not want to see an animal shot with a Glock 20, 6 inch barrel, 135 grain bullets.

Is that a hunt in which you were involved? I had no idea you could get that close to feral pigs. Is that how hog hunts typically go? Are wild pigs color blind? Keen of sight/scent?

Well you can "stalk" wild hogs. This isn't the way that I've been feral hog hunting. Most of the time they had dogs that wear leather vest that protect them from the tusks, and they literally fight, hold down, or corner and get the hogs attention, while a guy hops on the hogs back with a knife and kills it. This was in south Georgia and one of the craziest things I have ever seen.

As far as color blind and scent, I really don't know.

I also have seen people just hunt them like a deer, in a stand, or in the back of a pickup truck. You just wait for them to come feed.

I really would not ever suggest getting that close to a feral hog. They can actually kill you. They are tough mothers. Especially the larger ones. The smaller ones you might be able to handle on your own.

Thermal Hog Hunting... 22 in one night:
This video is one of my favorites. Also, he's a very good shot. Check out the way he leads on the run. He rarely misses.

Both baiting and hunting from a vehicle are illegal for hog hunting in Georgia.

I could probably find the info on the DNR site, but are feral hogs hunted by permit only or are they like coyotes... open season year round?

Who said anything about baiting? Just eating. Plus, I hunt in South Carolina pretty often, where they do bait deer. I've never seen baiting of hogs, though.

You can get a permit from DNR to hunt feral hogs over bait if you are a landowner and have a hog problem. Other than that you can kill as many of them as you want day or night any time of the year.

Pretty impressive. Just a little twitching, but dropped that sucker quick.

I've always heard that 10mm is a bad boy, but never actually seen one in action like that. Thanks for the vid.

I would get down into the swamp bottoms and start walking into the wind. Usually go the first few days after a nice rain....nail'em every time!

Damn with a capital DAMN! That was a hell of a shot, especially one handed, and the camera stayed on frame the whole time! I figure you shot him at about 8 or 10 yards, and he went down on that first shot. I couldn't tell from the video, but was that second shot right in the top of the skull? I thought I saw a wound, but I wasn't sure.

You may have sealed the deal for me though...I'm planning on building a 1911, but I was going to chamber it for .45Super. Looks like 10mm might be the way to go. Do you need the hunting license to take hogs? Also, what do you do with them after? Do you have them butchered, or do you clean them and leave them for scavengers? I really know almost nothing about hunting, so I'm sorry if I sound dumb about it. With the thick brush and close set trees around my area, handgun hunting, especially hogs, is really viable.

The guy who works over at Evan's Mill Pawn told me his buddy shot a Bull in the head with a 10mm in South Georgia and the bull dropped dead on the spot. The velocity and different bullet weights is what sold me on the 10mil.
