Was just wondering if anyone on here knew where to find wild boar in the northumberland area, I have looked around for tracks and signs in a few places which people have said there was boar there. But have not had any luck finding any. Does anyone have any information on where to find them here??

Information gratefully recieved, Thanks

They are definately there; they have been rooting up the golf course, and DEFRA had a marksman shoot one.

. whats the law on hunting boar here?



After reading hundreds of posts in many topics on this great site I have come to the conclusion that the main rule in the British Isles for many forms of dog hunting is DON,T GET CAUGHT!!

When you consider my less than noble convict ancestory it should not surprise anybody that, within sporting paremeters, I fully support this rule,

cheers
