Snubbin' a hog is not an easy way to deal with a hog!

I'd invest in a gun, it will be your friend.

Alternately, toss a bit of feed out, imagine an X between the ears and eyes and whack it with a good sized hammer. Don't be gentle...you are out to kill this hog. Often this is all it'll take, but you still have to bleed it. Take the properly prepared (very sharp) knife and cut a long slice as deep as you can, from ear to ear (we're talkin' both carotid arteries and the windpipe. After you've done it once or twice, you won't need to go so deep). Pick up a foreleg and pump it to pump all the blood you can out of said hog.

Hammer, .22 or 30.06...pretty much the same thing...properly applied.
