Before everyone tells me that this shouldn't be done, I ask this because I was following a discussion on a French forum on this topic, albeit a different angle. As many of you know, it's quite common on the continent to despatch wounded deer or boar with a knife, dagger or even a spear, especially on driven hunts. It made me think that I'm not sure what the best way to do that would be. I could finish off the poor creature, but I'm not confident that I'd be using the most humane method, especially as we don't usually carry the sorts of daggers designed for the purpose. It strikes me as a thing we should know in case for whatever reason, a bullet isn't available.
There you go, a controversial question on a Thursday night for you.
