    Hi just a question regarding boar hunt . Can an 18 inch or 20 inch shotgun be used for hunting boars . Is it advisable to be close around 20 to 25 meters or less with shotgun to get good result or rifle is the best way to go about it . If rifle i am considering 308 for this purpose .

    Isn't 20 to 25 yards too less a distance for wild boar? Unless you are on some solid / running vehicle, a charging wild boar will not give you the second chance.

    AoA all,

    While on DRIVEN hunts there would be every possibility that BOARS will cross any of
    the hunters even less than 20-meters or come straight towards you when running out
    of THICK BUSHES or cultivated crops.

    Pump action shotguns are complete TURN OFFS for such situations, SEMI AUTOS with
    extended magazines having NO cycling issues should be used. For shorter ranges one
    can easily go for 20-inches barrels.

    Rifles are ideal starting from 243,270,7mm,308, etc. But Riflemen must be aware about
    the SAFETY of the surrounding human dwellings.

    Yes it is bro that is why i am curious cause this is a good effective range for shot gun unless you use slugs but that will also increase to 30 to 35 max and you are right boar will not give a second chance .

    I will agree with you sir i think rifle will be a better option for Boars but one should also be aware of surrounding area for safety purpose .
