First wild boar

Recommended Posts

Cra* shooting.

The bullet often passes through the beast and a professional hunter always but always makes sure there is a safe backstop behind the quarry. YOU WERE LUCKY.

We might have been reading about this in the smellygraph if a jogger got slotted by uncontrolled splinters.


i've been shooting for some time now i'm not a- div pup -no all about backstops - and the backstop in this case is a 20ft bank with no roads bridleparths footpaths within 4 miles


I wouldn't have evin replied to that comment its just a jellos remark

not being funny bud but did you intetionally wait untill one was behind the other?

if so its not the sort of thing to be done with pigs and deer.if not then your "know all about backstops" is just as invalid as the tone used earlier (crap shooting......).

its our responsibility to shoot cleanly(this sort of thing happens,especially at night.but should be avoided where possible).

bavarian brit is obviously living in germany(is german or has lived there) where this kind of thing is seriously frowned upon,the hunter would be considered irresponsible and callous(there version of "sporting behaviour" the "waidgerechtigkeit" would forbid any such shooting and so i can understand where he is coming from(i learned the "game" in germany too,under a very traditional and excellant mentor).

hence my answear to his reply "bauern doublette" is a term used for this,meaning "agriculural double" and its not flattering in any way.

all the same it went well and nothing was injured(excluding a third boar possibly?).
