Shooting driven boar

Wild boar shooting in the UK. Permitted legal quarry and currently no close season — not protected from the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, hunting year-round, open season.

Nonetheless, it is certainly time we think of introducing a close breeding season for sows’. shooting a sow with young that are suckling, dependents will die from starvation.

Forest of Dean offers the largest flourishing population of wild boar in the UK, there well over 1,200 wild boar living in this forest region. Originating from escapees from a farm near Ross-on-Wye in the 1990s. added to by sixty animals illegally released, on the western edge of the Forest of Dean, above Wye valley. Both groups later merged, despite Forestry Commission culling, estimated there are currently more than two and half thousand wild boar roaming free range and the Forest of Dean.

Wild boars are prospering in the Forest of Dean, due to no natural predators.
