Last night Andy and I had an evening on the boar with 222cwd and Chinky as our guests. 222cwd and Andy sat in deckchairs in a field surrounded by the sounds of boar feeding just inside the trees but nothing came out on to the open field and with still too much cover in our bit of wood they had to make do with just the sound of contented boar feeding within a couple of hundred yards all around
Chinky and I sat up a high seat overlooking a feeder watching with a very impressive thermal imaging camera. After several hours of watching badgers cleaning up under the feeder suddenly there was a much larger bright white lump at the feeder. Time to swap to the rifle (my lovely plastic Blaser 30.06 ) Chinky placed the 180 grain Nosler b/tip nicely on the slightly angled Boar after a big thump of the bullet striking home the boar disappeared into the bushes.
We sat for a few minutes before getting down and walking to the strike and finding plenty of blood, a quick look with the thermal imaging kit showed the boar just inside the bushes it had ran about 15 yards.

Still plenty about keep bidding on the M&S
