Thread: first at new place

    first at new place

    Well we have had loads of pics of a sounder in one area and a loan boar at another thats been causing some damage to nearby fields, so after feeding him into a field with a seat in and getting him in there regular i sat in the seat at 12 midnight on wednesday and watched the forest edge from time to time.

    At around 12.20am i heard branches cracking and watched through the night vision and soon i was watching the big boar quartering the far edge of the field sticking tight to the forest edge, he seemed to only have his mind on food and tore chunks out of the rough ground around the ferns so i slowely raised the gun but even with the z6 turned down i couldnt see him as a taget clearly so shaking i held my nerve telling myself to wait for him to step closer into the moon light, so i watched through the monocular and soon enough he worked his way towards me into the brightness of the moon and i swapped the night vision for the gun and followed his every move.
    I was still shaking with adrenalin but he soon gave me a chance at about 35 yards and the shot was taken, i heard a lot of comotion then quiet and after waiting for what seemed like hours i climbed down and found him in the ferns about 30 yards from the point of impact.
    The new landowners will be having their first taste of boar shortly...
