Well i got a phone call today from a chap who,s uncle has one of the biggest Wild Boar shoots in france. The uncle was out stalking with me last year and caually mentioned that i should nip over and go Boar Hunting with him. Well the wife was ill and i thought he is just makeing small talk any way. I have been asked and there not takeing no for an answer. So here is the problem.I only have a 6.5 and its got a nice scope on it that i dont really want to take off. Can i hire a rifle for the week and if so what calibre would you take and should i practice. I did mention the 12 bore and sg,s the chap just laughed and said the big boar would run with them in em. So i have got a while to get ready but i want to get it right because it will prob be a one off.
