November 2009 hawking Incident...

That wild boar, as you can see is only a baby. In the top pic you can see that youngster running with the adults.

The boar down this part of the world know people are trouble and dont hang around and can motor! I should think the situation would be very different if a dog was involved!
The first one to be taken was purely by accident as I hawk a lot in woodland with him following on. This one weighed around 11lb ' 12lb mark.




The boar population is very large in my part of East Sussex that I've just moved up from, and over the border into west Kent. Infact on the country estate I worked on, is based either side of the Sussex/Kent border, and I've seen three adult boar get up and bolt in an open arable field in the middle of the day in august.
The youngster taken did not have it's sow (mother) with it, so was on it's own in principle.

Lovely pics. We've luckily never been up close and personal with one, but where we lived in France we had forests with them in large herds, and a friend met a large boar once whilst walking and did not enjoy the encounter.   I enjoy mine on a plate

It's a male golden eagle, mainly flown at - hare, rabbit and the odd large Incidental game such as fox and another large "various" that frequent woodland..
