You should try killing a boar with a .22. Ill visit you in the hospital. LOL
Hogs have a thick, protective armor on their heads. A .22 will just bounce off, typically. I have seen a .308 ricochet off a hogs head before. If you aren't a noob and can aim straight, the sweet spot is behind the ear. Or right in the ear. Within 200yds its a pretty easy shot with a scope.
I don't live in bear country, but i can imagine a .22 would do a fine job of pissing them off.
Badgers....they do live around here. Nasty critters. I guess you could kill one with a .22 if you shot it about a dozen times.
If i am out in "the bush", i absolutely carry a sidearm. My favorite is my "Judge". I also like my .40 S&W. Both can give a 1 shot kill to any of the local deadly wildlife (cougars, bobcats, coyotes, hogs, etc, etc).
