Since Boar are mammals and not birds... South of the border you'd be limited to two dogs by the hunting Act 2004 .... Not ideal really.Well if you can use beaters with dogs to move game birds then boar with no status yet are ok too. Nothing says you can't as such.
Not illegal,quite legalif I wasnt interested I wouldnt have asked , is it illegal to drive deer and why
Sorry when I said Illegal to drive deer I should have said in the european sense, using loads of dogs and beaters.Thats what i thought , more moving deer than driving them to get your numbers at the end of the season , right ?
I attend driven hunts here every chance I get. Great sport, fantastic music from the pack of foot-hounds, guaranteed adrenalin fix every time... but no Boar.Sorry when I said Illegal to drive deer I should have said in the european sense, using loads of dogs and beaters.
There is a massive difference between a deer movement over here (which is legal) and a european driven hunt.
Hunting Act 2004 (Englandshire etc) Provided you meet the other criteria for exempt activity you must still comply with...is it two dogs per drive or per handler?
