I recently posted in the General section about a bit of ground that I have been asked to assess for deer in the south of the Wye Valley as the land owner is about to start some forestry work and Natural England wanted him to have plan in place. Needless to say I found little deer activity on the site but quite a lot of what looked like Boar trade.
So I set the trailcam up and this is one of the animals it caught. I am new to Boar, are they normally this big and what would a beast like that weigh in the larder? I put the pic of me and my pal in to give a sense of scale, particularly when you look at the vid you can see the Boars back is above our waste height and neither of us are small so it must be a really big boy, it makes the Fallow look small in comparison!
I have set things up to hopefully shoot one next visit, though I am a bit worried as to whether I could handle a beast of this size!
