Would someone give me some info in boars in GB. Before it gets started, I'm not talking about that guy in the pub, hehe!
Here in Texas we have lots of 'wild boar.' A better name would be ferral hogs, but that's not as sexy. Because of this they can be hunted by any means 24/7/365. Most are decendents of domesticated pigs that have escaped. Some of these go back 500yrs. The vast majority, revert to dark in color and become leaner with longer snouts. Some of this is probably natural selection. Some is probably that most hunters will shoot a light or spotted one, if given a chance. No matter what you here, it is unusual to shoot one over 200lbs. My biggest, to date, is almost 300lbs. Thats one pig out of close to 200 that I've shot or seen shot There have been pure 'Russian' released on purpose, or escapees, but these soon are absorbed by local populations. Again don't be mislead, most of our pigs are ferral hogs under 200lbs. capt david
