Wild Boar Hunting with Modern Sporting Rifle (MSR) Now it is Americas Best Selling Rifle, period.
Bringing Plenty of firepower to a boar hunt is a wise idea. When spot and stalk boar hunting, you get up close and personal with these wild boar. Being prepared is key, you never know when you will come upon a Giant Boar bedded down or moving through the dark low parts of the forest. Having your brother with you who is also equipped with an AR 15 makes for safer boars hunting.
A lot can happen when boar hunting. The best hunting tips is to be prepared for anything. Successful hunters are prepared for the unpredictable. The AR 10 is a great weapon that is as versatile as it is powerful. The LWRC AR 10 makes a .308 they call “The Reaper”, and with good reason… Having a pistol on your hip never hurts either, the more powerful it is the better. While the Wilson Combat 1911 isn’t a traditional boar hunting weapon they can hold their own in close quarters.
One of the best features of the AR 10s and 15s is the massive magazine. Thirty rounds of .308 means you can kill whatever you can hits. Even the Biggest Boar with all its armor and strength can be taken down with just one, or maybe a few, well placed shots. Extra firepower only increases the odds of slaying one of these primitive beasts.
Preparing the weapon and scope before a hunt is a critical first step. Despite all the firepower, shot placement is still crucial. Especially when you are doing Wild boars hunting adventures. Equipped with a bipod stand right in the front grip the AR 15 sights in. Making less than a perfect shot when boars hunting can make tracking your quarry difficult.
Wild Boars, and especially Big Beasts are powerfully armored creatures. A large a shield behind the Boars shoulder protects the vitals giving them a strong defense. Over that is a thick hide and solid muscle. The larger the boar the thicker the development of the shield. Wild Boars hunting can be difficult because of this, that means shot placement is everything no matter the caliber used. Lining up behind the shoulder in the center of the beast pierces the plate, ribs, and gets the legendary double lung shot.
The spot and stalk method allow for close shots, many between 25 to 65 yards. Qualifying the weapon at 30 to 35 yards lets you know what your bullet will do in these closer quarters. The Boar hunter can focus on their shot and where the gun is aiming, rather than thinking about where they should be aiming.
The spring Giant Boars Hunting adventures allow for easy visibility. The underbrush and leaves are packed down. Spotting the boars early on can provide you with the advantage.
Hunting with family is a time honored tradition. The memories that are made and the stories that are told will be passed on from generation to generation. Going wild boars hunting with your brother will be one of those special memories.
The Boars live in many different types of terrain. The Upland Hardwoods forest is a good place for the boars to forage and root. Hidden valleys and hillsides are popular places to seek Genuine boar.

The spring is also the time when the piglets are roaming the land. These pigs are born to smart sows who watch over them. Check out the camouflage that protects the young. Getting close to the piglets is not suggested, you never know when the momster is waiting to charge.
The LWRC Reaper claimed its first Wild Boar on a cool crisp spring day in the sunshine. Up on top a hill the Jesse set his sights on a large dark boar. The shot was taken at 30 yards. When the boar stepped into a small opening he sent forth The Reaper to harvest the boar.
Not long after one shot was fired taking down a wild boar another group appeared in the distance. This time it was brother Andy’s turn to choose a boar. A group of all large pigs slowly moved in looking through the foliage. From the same hill Andy crept to a small stand of trees for a better rest for the AR 15. As the pigs moved through it was a matter of finding a boar giving a good shot with nothing in the way.
In the end he chose the last boar coming through just as his brother did. He fired one shot and hit the pig in the lungs. Despite delivering a lethal shot the pig moved well for being shot and when the boar cleared the other pigs he fired another shot ending the event. Andy’s boars hunting adventure got him a large chested and big toothed beast. The .308 AR 10 also scored pass threw shots on both pigs – every boar hunters dream shots.
The AR 10 platform isn’t a standard hunting weapon, the difficult part is trying to understand why not, it is clearly a great boars hunting rifle.
