Thread: Wild Boar or Badgers...?!

    Wild Boar or Badgers...?!

    I shoot a peice of land near the surrey/sussex border... there was a load of torn up lawn/paddock 10sq/m a while go that I put down to badger activity (digging for leather jackets).

    There were some strange gouges out of the ground that I wasn't sure about. I was obviously secretly hoping it was Wild Boar, but to my knowledge there aren't any in that area... or so I thought. There are certainly a few badgers about!

    Fallow exist on the same shoot but I've not seen one in over a year - there's a lot of wooded cover, and a lot of Roe, so it occured to me that if Fallow were around and I hadn't seen them then perhaps Wild Boar might also be passing through the land on occasion without being seen?

    This is off the back of a sighting in Godalming in Surrey that I read about online. I know there have also been a few released (and quickly shot) on the south downs in West Sussex... so wondered if anyone had seen any?

    Is there any definitive way I can tell if it's Boar?

    Thanks,
    BD

    Don't have a trail cam

    Thanks Remington - was somewhere between your pics and what I've seen of Boar... was surprised to see that much damage from badgers on your pics though so maybe it was just badgers (please god let it be boat though!)
