Thread: There be Boar!!!

  1. #1

    There be Boar!!!

    Right Guys,
    spoke to my friendly neighbourly FLO today as I'm hankering for a 9.3x62 barrel for my Mauser.

    As I'm about to get my ticket opened up I thought "Ho Ho" this should be easy...........
    FLO knows I'm looking at using the barrel for boar, so he ask's
    "Boar? In Hertfordshire?"
    Hmmm
    Good point.
    So my question is Where are the Boar?

    Knowing you lot, lets keep it to the UK mainland.....

    If you can think of any other reasons for 9.3 I'm all ears!

    Cheers!!

    How about youíre looking for a calibre thatís capable of dealing with driven boar should you travel abroad or to elsewhere in the UK for some boar action (book some stalking, wangle an invitation, something like that), but that is in the meantime perfectly suitable for fallow, reds and sika, especially in areas where you want to make sure they drop on the spot and arenít lost in dense vegetation. Itís out of welfare concerns. I mean, this isnít even nonsense. Itís a really common chambering in the rest of Europe.

    Try this sight for UK boar sightings. I'm not sure how up to date the site is or when the sightings were reported but hope it helps.

    I am hugely disappointed that there don't appear to be any in Ealing.

    Why don't you just ask for your 9.3mm for deer staking and fox control That's what I have on my fac for my .444m and also for the 9.3mm slot that I have

    Unfortunately our licencing dept read the Home Office guidance manual and treat it as gospel.
    The HO treat 9.3 as a Dangerous Game round. Which is of course ridiculous. So getting it down as a fox/deer round was a complete non starter!
    Of course I'm aware of the Forest of Dean and the other counties, I was just wondering what the spread of boar migration was currently nationally.
    Thank you for your assistance guys!
