I've just read this article on shooting UK where it says you can't shoot boar unless it specifically states boar on your licence... my licensing dept removed "boar" during my last variation and replaced it with AOLQ telling me that it covered Boar... SUK article sounds like total piffle to me...?
Wild boar shooting in the UK, Shooting wild boar | Home Feature | Shooting UK
"WILD BOAR ON YOUR FAC
Wild boar do not come under the classification of 'game' or 'vermin'. Having these on your firearms certificate does not allow you to shoot wild boar legally.
In order to shoot wild boar in Britain your firearms certificate must specifically state 'wild boar'.
A certificate to shoot wild boar is only granted for .308 .270 and 30/06 calibre weapons."
p.s. I hope no one is using 300WM or 357 H&H on Boar as it's illegal apparently!!! Bwhahahaa!
