Available: Shoot Wild Boar for Meat in Cheshire 13 must go

#21
It's clearly advertised as shooting for meat, no mention of hunting, canned or otherwise. Down my way you'd pay almost £300 for a butchered whole pig so £300 for a whole wild boar seems pretty good value not too mention you could easily use it to justify need for a bigger calibre rifle should you want one.

I think this is perhaps the main attraction for some people. Pay a nominal sum to register for the "hunt", get a letter / receipt confirming your booking, and then in goes the variation with full documentary justification. Whether or not you then actually shoot the pig is neither here nor there.

So do the usual rules on the slaughter of livestock apply? Are they tagged? I am certainly not allowed to invite strangers over to shoot their own wethers for meat in a paddock.

Kind regards,

Carl

its exactly as you describe. the guys who run the wood are very friendly and they are careful to get you into the seat quietly so as not to disturb the boar.

I shot one of these last year and it was delicious!

Not for me not interested in boar what so ever , and I'm not overly keen on pork either.
Each to their own.
I love pork and boar but unfortunately I'm still laid up in hospital so will have to give it a pass.
Blinkin typical a good deal comes along when I have the money but can't take up the offer.
Usually it's lack of funds that's the problem!

Each to their own I am personally anti boar in the wild in the UK go abroad if you want to shoot them , they are a total nightmare for anyone involved in land management the damage they do is astronomical,unfortunatley they are established now and we are fighting a losing
battle trying to get rid.
Appreciate these are not wild so a different thing altogether.

Is this anything to do with the boar at Craigend/Moncrieffe rail tunnel.
We've had run ins with them when we did the tunnel shaft examinations.
Farmer had warned the recce team but they forgot to forward the advice and we nearly got run over by them when we headed up the hill!

Isn't that the best reason to cull them in the UK then ? Shooting boar abroad, does nothing to reduce the problem in the UK.
