  1. #1

    Forest of Dean Boar

    Looks like the F.C cull hasn't had the desired effect with more boar now than last year.

    they are not under control and never will be with the way they are controlled now, you cannot control numbers by taking one a night under the lamp or nv, management needs to be done with everyone singing from the same page, look abroad to the amount being shot they cant make a dent in the population, scotlands the same before long numbers will be too great especially when not shooting the correct animals, atb wayne

    I'll be glad to know I'm doing my bit to help then when I'm up with you in January!

    I do know that even out in places like Somerset they have had an increase in RTA's as a result of boar numbers.

    Really they need seasons like deer and a proper management approach.
    If you're shooting badly, you need a new gun. If you're shooting well then you deserve a new gun.

    You don't need drives to manage boar but you do need a management plan over a large area. I think thats not going to happen in the UK.
    The goverment in Sweden is looking to ban feeding of boar to slow the growth in boar numbers and i think hunters have been a big part in the spread of boar with the gross over feeding that has gone on.

    I did a talk this year at a stalkers evening where the head ranger from the Forrest of Dean was also giving a talk on the wild boar population and how they are managing them, the majority of land owners surrounding the Forrest would like more shot as they are becoming a real problem with damage to crops, the way I interpreted what the head ranger said was they have to keep all parties happy, farmers,land owners and cousils wonting more control and the fluffy bunnie brigade saying leave them alone.

    As a tracking organisation(UKDTR) we have had more calls over the last 12 months,
    All of these calls come from outside the Fc land,
    so I guess the numbers will keep rising!
