Thread: Wild Boar with knife and Dogo.

  1. #1

    Wild Boar with knife and Dogo.

    Recently helped a friend abroad by taking a Wild Boar that had got into in a 200 acre breeding pen. Developing a taste for Mouflon lambs was proving expensive.

    Snuck through brush until the boar was sighted - then slipped the Dogos. They held while I turned the pig and knifed it.

    Apologies for the initial video quality - camera swinging on the end of a lanyard while Jo was running, didn't make for the most steady picture!

    Enjoy - it's another hunting method that is appropriate on occasion. For those that are interested, the boar went 165lb on the hook.

    Naturally, dogs and knives will not be everyone's taste - please do not click the link if you are of a delicate disposition!

    The bit I don't get is why use a knife - why not simply shoot it?

    Dogs milling around, rapid changes in position = a great chance to end up shooting one of your dogs. Either directly or with an exiting bullet.

    Having tipped the boar, you are in a position to hold it and control it with not too much effort. From that position, controlled use of a sticking blade is not difficult.

    File it under general interest - check the rest of the videos in this forum and you will find a couple others which do not strictly involve a man, a rifle and a deer.

    Enjoy it - or don't bother clicking on the link. Either way - be happy with what you take from the site!

    I learnt something from this,

    mainly not to go pig chasing with you, but still I learned something.
