Hi, guys - thought you might like to see a nice Scottish Wild Boar recently completed. Just shy of a medal but a big boy for Dumfries-Shire nevertheless. His neck measured 33 inches at the atlas joint! ATB Bill.

I have shot boar in Europe for 20yrs, but Dumfries seems to produce some very good animals. A mate (big Pete who is no longer with us) had some very big boar on his farm in Dumfries. I think you have a better chance of a medal in Dumfries than in Europe, certainly the trophy fees will be cheaper.

Awesome work yet ageing bill.

Ive stalked boar quite a few times with Colin having culled three boar in three outings.
its awesome stalking not as easy as some may think but worth while.
for those who haven't yet tried stalking boar with Colin I highly recommend it and if successful you will be hookedtruest me, already looking forward to October onwards and I'll be there.
take advantage of the carcasses also as its quality meat.
