well in 2004 i got the chance to go on a driven bore shoot it was £500 but one of them things i had to do so off me and my friend went driving up to Scotland. we got there a hour before the rest of the shooting party got there so we got out the food and flask of tea. when they all arrived to the car park the keeper gave us out hide numbers i was no 4 and my mate was no 3, these hides were made up of 4 wooden pallets raised about 2 foot of the ground we were given strict orders not to leave the hide until we were picked up by the shoot wagon. so 8am the shoot started and the bores were driven out of the woods into feeding patches were the hides were, i could hear shots going off all around me (both rifle and shotgun) but i was not getting a opportunity to let a shot off, then this quad potted up to my hide dragging 4 bore and the guy said to me "have you got any thing yet " no mate not yet have not even seen one around here. so it was now 11am and still not let a shot off but then i herd some crashing in the tree line to my left it was one a nice big bore so i let it come in to the feeder (by this time the hart was beeting so hard it was unbelievable the adrenaline rushing trough my blood, at about 15yds it stopped and started to munch on some food from the feeder bang bang gave it 2 shots from my 12guage semi auto using 3inch magnums and it fell just in the tree line then a second came out 30 min later same agane dropped it just in the tree line then it all went quite the guy on the quad was back "you got owt yet buddy" yes mate just dropped 2 in the tree line so off he went to retrieve them when i herd a loud shot from just in the treeline he had just put a round in the back of one of the boar's head apparently one of the legs were twitching and just to make sure he shot agane. so he tied a rope around the back legs and dragged them out with the quad he said to me "what are you using" to which i replied a semi auto shotty with 3inch magnums " bloody hell you have blown half of its neck off" so any way it was now Dina so back in the wagon and down to the car park we went my mate has had 1 so far and i had 2 so after Dina back up to the hide but i got no more for the rest of the afternoon but my mate got another 2 so we ended the day with 5 between us but the over all bag was over 20 for all the guns. so off to the b&b we went ready for a beer now the next morning it was time to head home. and that was my trip to Scotland on a driven bore shoot which i realy enjoyed.
