My MARAUDER was feeling neglected these past couple months, so I took her out for the day. 9 HOGS IN SEVEN HOURS.

Pretty cool. There has been a gentleman from Germany wondering about using a 35 Remington for hogs. I think this answers his question.

Man, I wish we had hogs around here. Hunting year round for this old man would be a real treat! What are you running in your 35 for bullets? Nice haul on hogs, I'm feelin just a bit green with envy. ;D DP

Where are you shooting all these hogs? Is there a season on them? What about out of state hunters shooting them?

The 35 will kill hogs dead. Even when you try to gut shoot them so they run off and die, many are still DRT.

They may be fun to hunt but they are tough on the landscape.

Congratulations! As much as I love pork, I see a lot of great cookouts in your future. What is your favorite way to prepare and what is your favorite part of the hog?

I hunt a 1600 acre private hunting club in Glades County. Closest town is Labelle. We have in my opinion more hogs in glades co. than any other county in Florida. Hog hunting is legal all year on private land.
Yes, we have alot of BBQ parties at the club. The big boar hogs due have a game taste but a slow smokey cooking covers most of it.. the sows are delicious.
Gunrunner , maybe next year I will bring my cooker/smoker up to the MARLIN OWNERS get together. With a truck load of pork. Sorry I can't make it this year. It will be something to look forward to in 2012.

Congrats on the successful hunt! At times I too wish we had piggy hunting oportunities around here but definitely glad we don't have to deal with all the problems they create.

All bullets passed through, except for two of the hogs were shot running away and those bullets were lodged in the start of the lower neck area. The 35 is devastating on hogs. I was using hornady leverevolution 200gr. Most of the shots were from 20-75yards.

Don't wish you cound have them. They are creating problems both where I live and where I own land in another area of Tennessee. You can't get them all, and they do lots of damage to pastures, crops, woods, your leg, etc.
