Hounds on boar in Spain

Recommended Posts

Makes sense, but with the hounds here, if a boar is lifted and flushed to guns, the 1st thing to do is collect up hounds and head straight back to the same spot as they do sit quite tight, maybe as they are used to the sketch? Troop of boars are hunted from district to district here (or 'chasse' to 'chasse').

Aye here it's a bit diff. The dogs push boar and that's it. The whipper in (for want of a better word) walks the dogs and directs but not with as much input. The dogs do their job and the shooters are so widely spaced they can do theirs.

If you've had a pig fly past you at full pelt being chased by dogs and you think you can hit it with an arrow... I'm sure the owner would like to see that feat 😂

I had one like a shetland pony clad in coconut matting  show at high speed over/across a track in front of me and it was so quick that I never even had time to get the gun to shoulder.  It is very difficult when you are put on a peg /stand and you don't know the lay of the land, where there will be a break through and where dogs are.. it's quite a high though.

I was told by an experienced shot to get on one knee to shoot boar coming toward you if your on the ground and not up in a raised stand. ( If you've got the nerve ).  He reasoned that kneeling you were smaller and that you were shooting straight at the target rather than having to add downward lead as the target closed in. He said that he had seen people ripped and seriously injured  by boar going through them. One of the son in laws has a place down in middle France and says that when they have the local boar shoots it is wise to stay inside as they tend to shoot all over the place and everyone wears yellow hi vis.

The high-viz vests are a legal requirement here too.. don't want to get popped now do ya 😂

Boar will rip through you. However, with dogs instead of guns, who knows what's possible.
