Texas Hog Hunting Weapon
Selecting the type of weapon for hunting hog in Texas is not difficult. Texas allows hog hunters to use any legal center fire rifle or handgun.
One weapon may work in a number of different hog hunting shooting conditions. At the 4J Ranch, the choice of weapon comes down to the type of hog hunt: Is it a blind hunt, stalking hunt or wild hog shoot?
Weapon for Hog Hunting in Blinds
For our blind hunt, any rifle action will work. The rile may have a scope. Hogs are within 50 yards standing still. If you use a scope, have a scope with good light gathering capabilities. A good scope is a 4x scope with a 30 mm tube diameter and a 50 mm objective lens. Go to Hog Hunt in Blind for more details.
Stalking Hog Hunt or Hog Shoot Weapon
During a stalking hog hunt or wild hog shoot, the hogs are 50-100 yards away and they are running. The best rifle for these two hunts is a rapid fire weapon without a scope.
Texas Hog Hunting Basics offers more details on Texas wild hog hunting conditions at the 4J Ranch.
Texas Hog Hunting Ammo
Once a weapon is selected, you need the correct ammo. We ask our hunters to use a ballistic tip or soft point bullet for calibers less that 270.
