Thread: Weekend sitting out

  1. #1

    Weekend sitting out

    I read a advert on SD for sitting out for boar at night for 180 per evening. So as the boar have been coming to the feeder every third night so i thought i would sit out and see if i could get one for the freezer. There have been bigger boar coming but as the weather has been warm and they would not fit in my old fridge i use, i have not bothered them.

    I've had a lot of trouble with jays eating maize from the feeder but over the last couple of weekends i must have shot over 40 with the .22.

    I sat out friday night from 22.00-03.00 and only saw a roe doe. Last night i was in the tower at 22.15 and the boar came at just before 24.00 as they have done for the last few visits. 2 sows with 8 young. One of the sows was of the spotted type. So i singled out one of the young and dropped it with a shot in the ear. 35kg live weight so should give me just unde 20kg of good eating.

    But not only that i saved 360 by not paying for sitting out but i get to keep the meat for nothing 360 thats nearly a ton of maize

    I'll feed them up for you. Just hope the weather is a bit colder by then. 14 jays on friday. When will they learn?

    Do you have to check the meat for worms?
