Boar Hunting in The Forest Of Dean
Posted 15 July 2007 - 09:30 am
No idea how people go about it. How effective would a shotgun be? I'm guessing it'd be a case for stalking in and using you'd need a pretty high powered rifle. Anybody who knows anything about it, let me know.

I've got a few mates that shoot round there and he says the place is full of guys with compound bows totally illegal but they turn a blind eye to it .
, I did quite a lot of running here . Never gave it a second thought then. Same in the local forest here where most of my running is these days, so many have seen the so called "Beast Of Brechfa", a big cat to us lot , I've never seen more than your average wild moggie. I dare say there is something though.

forget the rifles and crossbows get acouple of good dogs much more fun we get over by coleford now and then and have had a lot of pig, on the lamp is best as they are out more but we have got them in the daylight as well
So you have had a few hey. interesting stuff, bailed up and shot or eared and stuck?
I have spent a fairbit of time around boar and they are one awesome animal and best left for the stalkers IMO

well i surpose if you have a fac you would be carefull never mind what cal
Exactly, we have one of the biggest wild boar populations locally, and if you have a FAC and are shooting pigs you have to be careful, what ever the cal.
I dont get the lads dogging them at all, messy and too much attention in this small land of ours IMO.
