Pigpopper,

The Shotgun World forum has a thread with some good action boar/dog pics taken near where you hunt. The pic with the boy and a small boar is my 15 year old youth hunter. He is off to a good start. Here is the link:

Thanks for the hunting spots;

Richard

did the dogs kill it or a shot? seems kinda unfair if you ask me. But thats just my opinion.

Hello rckjeep,

Glad to meet you. Wild pigs are bad to the bone, so I doubt if domestic dogs can kill one. When hunting wild boar with dogs a knife will do the job. Recently, while watching OLN Television, I seen Ted Barta knife a wild boar under its front leg while it was held a bay by hounds. So, it’s doable if a guy is brave enough.

The small boar that my boy shot was taken with a shotgun slug using a traditional the spot & stalk method. A wild boar is a ferocious animal, so giving one a sporting chance is to gamble ones life. They are very hard to kill!

The guys with the Airedales have their own forum, and it’s posted under the last picture in their message. Do you hunt wild pigs? Richard

no I haven't hunted any pigs , not sure if I would. I know they are vicious I've been chased a few times by them on my mountain bike, pretty scary. I do have a question though. Lets say I'm hunting turkey and get confronted by a boar. He charges for some reason would a 12g turkey round make it turn tail? I heard in my hunters safety course that their hide can be an inch thick. sounds crazy.

The noise would probably cause a pig to change course, but I wouldn’t shoot the animal with BBs unless I had the muzzle behind his ear. Richard
