People who kill animals for fun are trash - full stop.

I understand people that want to eat clean from nature. That's one thing. That has a purpose.

But to go lie about in the cold so you can shoot something, take it's antlers, and dump the body? That's trash. You shoot it, you eat it.

Not surprising.  In my mind, the typical Daily Fail reader rarely leaves town, being a Little Britain type who is constantly scared of being introduced to new things (drunken trips to Ibiza being the exception).  And hunting seems to be an upper class thing in the UK, not a Little Britain thing.

I totally agree.

If no problem hunting, but my ass is genuinely too lazy to field dress a deer, haul it back, and then haul it to the butcher.

Thus I don't hunt.

I love venison, don't get me wrong. And I honestly don't care about trophies. I do not crave antlers upon my wall. But I've no problem with others who hunt and actually consume what they have harvested.

You don't just run up to any animal you just shot. A deer a properly fark you up. A few hunters die every year that way.

I used to pig hunt years ago.  If you happened upon them the rule was a 50% they'd run and 50% they'd stay and try to Fark you up.

Those are a huge problem in the US as well. They're invasive, destructive and will charge you. If their tusks clip an artery, you're farked.

Farmers in texas hire people to come shoot hogs on their land. Who then turn around and charge idiots to come do the actual work.

It's a solid business model.

Years ago I was doing research for something else and found an article from the BMJ on injuries caused by Melanesian wild boar. It started off with a quote from King Dick's bestiary which said the boar "is the fellest of beastes and will soonest kill a manne." Most of the casualties were Europeans on vacation who went hunting with a shotgun and no dogs. Almost all of them got their femoral arteries cut "and exsanguinated on the spot. Those who survived to hospital had wounds which were long, wide, deep, jagged, septic and required delayed closure."

Local hunters carried at least two spears and hunted with dogs who were trained to bite the boar on the scrotum.

This guy should have carried two spears and brought trained dogs.

I think in many cases, it's so they can drink lots and lots of beer. The antlers are just a bonus.

(Other potentially valid reason to hunt is population control, and from the news articles I'm googling Italy seems to have a pretty big problem with 'em. Not sure I'd want to eat a boar that had lived its life eating out of trash cans though...)

Fun fact: a pig's head, and therefore tusks, are around 3 feet off the ground.   guess where the femoral arteries are?

25 Pound Dog - 4
Me - running because I didn't want to get shot just for being there

My Grandpa use to work at a slaughterhouse, and he had a scar on his right hand....because a pig that was supposed to be dead suddenly came back to life.

If you don't want to put as big a dent in the swine population but want to get more boars more reliably take Mrs. Nuran's suggestion.

Borrow a sow
Pump her full of the hormones that put her in estrus
Tie her up under your tree stand

Part of it is class. In Britain legal hunting has been a privilege of the upper classes since the Conquest. In the US it's been much more egalitarian.

And in Future Britain who is going to be able to just go to the butcher's shop and buy meat?

Yep.

Protocol for pig hunting is to carry a side-arm in case the thing - or one of their buddies - charges you.

My last pig hunt was a bust, and my wife ribbed me for a month about my "heavily armed hike".

Well, maybe. But the upper classes have always used the lower classes as deerstalkers or beaters or whatever.

For example, my brother's a gamekeeper in the Highlands. He does deerstalking, pheasants and grouse with wealthy people, but he's also got lamps on his landy to go lamping for rabbits.

The biggest difference is probably the rural/urban split; there's a lot more rural America than there is rural Britain.

Here's a program:

Allow hunters to kill as many as they can.

I've heard that wild boars are a nuisance in Europe, but the situation with wild pigs is even worse in places like Texas and Oklahoma.

There was a SA thread where some Louisiana coonass killed a shiatload in a rice paddy. Spearing them and stomping their neck to drown was most effective until he just ran them down in a truck. He layed their bodies out to spell 'oink' with a severed head to got the i.  More reasons not to go back down south.
