Thread: Countryfile today- Forest of Dean Boar

  1. #1

    Countryfile today- Forest of Dean Boar

    Anyone see this?

    More balanced than some BBC fodder but still had the pie-in-the-sky opinion of the anti; his proposed solution to the growing population of boar?

    "Leave them alone in the forest as a boar reserve but have marksman stationed around the perimeter in high seats to shoot the boar leaving the reserve!"

    eh?! 24hr armed perimeter marksman for the whole forest?!

    With respect that is not what he meant...Reserve coupled with landowner management off of the FC ground,being done already I would fancy...

    I may have misinterpreted it, or he may have miscommunicated his idea. He did say having "marksmen in high seats" outside the proposed reserve. Make of that what you will.

    I think he meant what Cervus said but he did make it sound as you suggested, Xavierdoc

    God that'd be a great job. Sat in a high seat, watching the world go by, cradling a 416 Rigby long range rig.....well a man can dream.

    Now that's a job I would fancy, I will have to put out a few sounders.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    There'd probably be a celebrity-endorsed protest to a cull- like Brian May and the badgers...

    Keiler Minogue, perhaps?

    I'll get me coat.
