I am new to wild pig hunting in Western Wisconsin. According to the WDNR, wild porkers are in abundant supply and are requested to be shot on sight (provided that one has a small game license, that is), because of the extreme damage to wildlife habitat. A buddy wants me to go wild pig hunting (Eastern Eau Claire County and Western Clark Co). I know that wild porkers are an intelligent animal and can be vicious given the opportunity to "even the score" with its oppressors. I wondered about their eyesight, sense of smell and hearing. I intend on using my trusty MARLIN M-1895 for my weapon of choice. My ammo will be my loads, 445 gr cast with a 0.330" flat meplat, driven at 1587 fps. The accuracy is less than 1-1/4" at 100 yd and my lever action is a decent fast-handling rifle.
