I would like to do a hog hunt for the 2020-2021 season. I would use a 30-06 with a scope that I feel confident out to 300 yards. I keep hearing that my 6.5 or 308 are too small. I would like to use a guide and would like some recommendations. I would like to shoot non running pigs if that is an option. I would also like to clean and pack my game out. Don't mind hard hiking.

I don't use guides, but if I did, Tom Willoughby would be my first call. I don't have his number, but google is your friend. I once saw Tom skin a gnarly hog in about 2 minutes flat, literally. The only concern would be how long, or tough, do you want your hunt to be - he can help you drop one in an afternoon. Also, I don't know who you've been talking to, but if you put the bullet in the right place, you could drop one with a .243. Tom went out one morning to kill a hog for a demo, and he used his son's .270. Good luck!

Hey buddy hope all is well. The 308 will do for a pig. I was out at the ranch about 3 weeks ago and came across 12 pigs. Took two down with my brothers 308. One shot each at 272 yards. Good shot placement and they will go down.
