I shoot a peice of land near the surrey/sussex border... there was a load of torn up lawn/paddock 10sq/m a while go that I put down to badger activity (digging for leather jackets).
There were some strange gouges out of the ground that I wasn't sure about. I was obviously secretly hoping it was Wild Boar, but to my knowledge there aren't any in that area... or so I thought. There are certainly a few badgers about!
Fallow exist on the same shoot but I've not seen one in over a year - there's a lot of wooded cover, and a lot of Roe, so it occured to me that if Fallow were around and I hadn't seen them then perhaps Wild Boar might also be passing through the land on occasion without being seen?
This is off the back of a sighting in Godalming in Surrey that I read about online. I know there have also been a few released (and quickly shot) on the south downs in West Sussex... so wondered if anyone had seen any?
Is there any definitive way I can tell if it's Boar?
