I would stick with a 30 cal of some sort though. A 30-30 is a good choice for an animal that is found in brush and not very often in the open. The 30-30 is a bushwhacker of a round.
Then my .308 will suffice. Just didn't want to blow it apart and waste the meat.

How does the meat compare to a domesticated pig if you know? (Edit: I'll take a stab and state that it's essentially pork with a gamey characteristic. I'll find out in due time.)
