Thread: Boar have moved in

  1. #1

    Boar have moved in

    I've been feeding this fella for a while, it's time he was gone, he's starting to destroy fences.

    any idea as to age and possible size of him?

    Hes a damn site heavier than he used to be after eating 6 bags of maize since New Years Day

    I assume this chappie is an escapee from Glen Dessary?

    I often think that our woods, even the "commercial" ones, would be much better for a few od these.

    He looks young so I guess around a year and about 50kg. Hope there's more

    Hard to tell but he looks less than two years, 50kg seems about correct, there must be others about. If he is doing that much harm, time to take him out.

    Dan, well done getting your beast. They can be a hand full to load in truck on your own. Wild boar are rarely fat especially this time of year. My butcher adds belly pork to the sausage mix o great effect. Don't let that put you off, I'm sure it will be delicious.

    What did he weigh in the end?

    Don't forget to get it trichinella tested before tucking in. http://multimedia.food.gov.uk/multim...ngwildboar.pdf

    many thanks for the link, il do that. Seems more chance of winning lottery that getting ill but you never know.

    He came in larder door at 82kg with the gralloch out him. Bloody awkward to handle, I've thrown 100kg stags in the pickup on my own but this was different.

    I was lent some night vision gear from a member on here and it worked a peach, IR converted Go-light on the roof connected to an LCD screen for spotting it then scope mounted NV for despatch.

    It never knew I was there.

    Hes got a nice set of small tusks.
