First, Never been bear hunting.

Second, Hog hunting can be fun. Whats great is that most states want to get rid of them so badly, all bets are off, i.e. you can bait them, hunt at night, etc (check your local regs).

If you use a rifle, just use what you would normally use for deer and you should be fine. If you go before/after a duck hunt, we also use buck shot on them, 4bk or 00 should work fine.

My uncle in Texas likes to stalk them at night. He'll put on a red head lamp, then sneak up on them and shoot them with a bow. I'm not that brave, I've just seen too many groups of hogs get worked up after you killed their friend.
It's a fact that 70 percent of the people who purchase heavier tackle do so with the categorical I just lost a huge snook! Einstein Hairdo.The other 30 percent have either Tarpon Fever or are sporting a hand cramped into a claw from a deepwater grouper.
