Can I shoot slugs through a Rem 870 20g? Would it dispatch feral pigs (some type of potbelly cross)? I can get close enough to shoot a BB gun at them. Found a goose nest at my pond that they destroyed, after finding them in my corral this morning about to run one of my horses through the fence. :-(
I think at some point they may have eated on one of the neighbors horses (he had a bunch of BLM horses, and is now mysteriously down to 3). He is the same one who let the pigs loose... Doesn't feed the horses or the pigs, they run loose everywhere. The pigs seem waaaay too interested in my horses. Last year they spent two days following my horse around her 20 ac pasture. I didn't think much of, I thought either they would quit or she would settle down. Well, they never quit. I had to put her somewhere else to get them to go away. After reading more about pigs and how bloodthirsty they can become, I am very concerned that they have eaten horseflesh and are hunting her.
I would have grabbed a (real) gun this morning, but decided I better try a few practice shots and work on it over the weekend, when I'm a little more calm. I did shoot them with the BB gun as I ran them across my pasture back home. In the past they have turned to face me, and I didn't have a pitch fork or anything in my hand to keep myself safe.
Stupid, stupid people. SIGH.
