    I had a boar run head first into a tree in Germany in Jan '09, he bounced back off it about two feet. Mind you, this was about 2 seconds after I had shot him in the chest with a 270 at about 12 feet of range. Poor boy was a bit disorientated after that... 8)

    Seen it a few times this year...

    Had a young Roe Buck crash into a pen on Sat which had to be shot as was in a bad way...

    Watched a Roe Buck take out almost every electric fence wire across a massive outdoor pig rearing unit yesterday after being pushed out by the beaters. Pigs everywhere!
    Last year one of the beaters got run into by a large Munty back which became momentarily tangled in his 'plus-fours'! After picking himself up he realised he had a huge gash on his inner thigh which required a lot of stitches. They assume it was a canine injury which missed a major artery by about 1/4 inch! It's quite a scary thought, especially if you have youngsters beating as many shoots do.

    i went on a shoot about 12 years ago which had a young land of about 10 or 11 whom they called deer stalker, i asked why and he had been knocked down by a roe whilst beating so it does happen
