    There are certainly Muntjac in Down and Armagh, possibly Tyrone also. Muntjac have been shot in Wicklow and Carlow in the Republic.

    This is the first I have heard of Boar other than the occasional escapee.

    We can only dream.

    If there was a huntable population of boar here, I would never need to leave the island.... 8)

    McStalk, where are you based?

    Amir, they are behind the electric fence. Scoffed about 70kg of feed since I got them. I reckon they are 30-35kg each. I don't think they will live to see Easter..... 8)

    Slightly off topic but where can I get Norma or Sako .223 ammo in NI, pref. Lisburn area. And no, not the Thiepval barracks.

    Can't think in Lisburn, but Young Guns in Castledawson or Hollow Farm in Comber might sort you out.
