I didn’t stumble into hog hunting, I jumped right into it and over the past 20 years have hunted them in a number of states, learned scores of lessons and have killed more of them than I care to count—most of them under the cloak of night, and often with a Pulsar Thermion. I have developed something of a love/hate relationship with feral hogs over that time; I love hunting them and hate the damage they leave in their wake.
Among seasoned hunters, the suggestions that handling firearms isn’t safe—or is dangerous—is borderline offensive. Regardless, Pulsar has some safety suggestions to refresh shooters on best practices.
Hunting has evolved dramatically throughout the history of mankind. For our species’ first several-thousand years, before anyone could possibly imagine something like a Pulsar LRF, bows and spears reigned supreme.

When delving into hunting laws, things get convoluted and certainly confusing. There are many restrictions, rules and regulations—what type of firearm, ammo and caliber you can use, when, where and what you can hunt, as well as which equipment and accessories are allowed—all defined by state laws because there are hardly any federal hunting laws.
