All those wild boars and hogs better watch out. Because Savage Arms just released the new IMPULSE Hog Hunter straight-pull rifle. The weapon is perfect in the arsenal of hog hunters everywhere, whether they’re an amateur or pro.
Speed and efficiency is the name of the game when it comes to the new IMPULSE rifle. Because hogs usually move in packs, the straight-pull action makes getting your shots off easier than ever. The weapon is also reportedly well-balanced making for a clean shot.
“Hunting hogs with a conventional bolt action rifle is highly effective, but when there is a large drove of pigs to clear out, the ability to take multiple shots is critical,” Jessica Treglia, Sr. Brand Manager at Savage Arms, said in a press release. “These new IMPULSE Hog Hunters will allow you to cycle the bolt with lightning-fast precision, stay on target without losing your sight picture, and the compact design is perfect for carrying in the dense brush hogs use for cover.”
The gun’s barrel is as short as 18 inches and is also heat efficient. The rifles are easily maneuverable. The rifle also uses OD stock with AccuStock and Savage’s AccuFit. This makes it easy to adjust the length of pull and the comb height. Users can set the adjustable trigger between 1.5 pounds to six pounds.
West Virginia Having a Wild Hog Lottery
Maybe one of the lucky few hunters in West Virginia should invest in the new rifle. The state is having its first lottery to auction off permits for wild hogs. In early February, 200 lucky hunters will hunt the creature on private land in West Virginia. Both sexes of the animal are fair game. But Hunters may only kill one boar.
Stephen McDaniel, director of the West Virginia DNR said, “We are so excited to be offering this lottery to resident hunters. Because there are limited places in West Virginia where you can hunt wild boar. Most of the wild boar range in West Virginia lies within the confines of private land. So this lottery could end up being the opportunity of a lifetime for a few lucky boar hunters.”
The rifle makes a great addition for hunters looking to take down the animal.
