    Boar tracking for the wire

    Hi guys
    anyone around the South East who can help out to get my wire some experience on Boar

    willing to turn up at short notice or in the middle of the night makes no odds, I've run him on some boar blood trace, would really appreciate a couple of tracks on a boar real time

    cheers

    Good to see you are keen to get your dog some experience on boar. But in you haste to track boar please don't go tracking wounded boar at night with a novice dog. Wait till the morning when its light.

    Thanks Jagare
    Any tracking will be in daylight, ideally if I can get a couple tracks from an overnight outing that will be the aim to give him some initial experience with boar and building up his (our) overall knowledge and experience on tracking boar, the more experience he can get the the better, he is in his third tracking year on deer and foxes

    cheers

    Spot on!

    Boar tracking is a lot different, its following up an animal which will fight you and your dog, if still alive and suffering. And thats with no matter about its size... You and your dog have to be prepared for it, for a chase, for a fighting, biting and trying to cut your legs with its tusks (if a sow or boar older than one year...) and for a dispatch which is much more dangerous than on any deer.

    We got 3 dogs injured on a yearling (Überläufer) two weeks ago, when Alex and Andy joint me on some driven hunts, another bloodhound got seriously cut into pieces by a two year Keiler....

    Be careful, get trained and be prepared for it!

    Wolfy I know Boar are on the increase in Scotland and so much so that FCS are trapping them in some area,s So I think training is a must when are you dog lads running your first day. I don't want my we Ria injured because I personally did not know how to deal with a situation.
    PS If the DI can organise a day down south why cant SNH organise one up here.
