Best Hog Hunting Guns

This is the last episode (for right now anyway) in my series on hunting feral hogs and we’re going to talk about what sort of guns are best suited for hog hunting. Glenn and I did talk about this a little bit in our interviews, but I wanted to cover it in more detail on my own today. So, we’ll discuss the best guns for hunting hogs over bait, calling hogs, hunting hogs with hounds, still hunting hogs, and hunting hogs with thermal sights.

Feel free to send me a message with any feedback you have on the show as well as topic requests for future episodes.
