    Melbo & Bear I followed a link in one of your discussions and found.....

    Hunting wild boar with a bowie knife? I've never heard of such a thing before, but I'm liking it... a lot. I didn't even think it was serious until I looked at the pics. I don't suppose either of you ever tried it did you?

    I guess the dogs pin the boar and you make the kill?

    I'm gonna email him and get a price quote..... I would love to do that!

    Very common here in Australia...can't say it lights my fire but each to their own. Dogs generally take hol of the hogs ears and tail/leg while the hunter stabs in under the front leg into the heart/lungs. Did lots of this when Iw as young and just grew out of it I guess.

    yeppers, a guy I bought feed from did it all the time, considered anything else uh chicken doo doo. His wife (at that time) had worn out two barrels on her 7mm. Love them people.[applaud]

    Hmmmm....... It would seem a lot more sporting if you made the dogs let go of the hog before you go in for the kill. Better get some good health insurance first though ;)

    Hey that guy on Survivor did it. :)

    Yup... its a sport for the young IMHO...
    Here's how my Uncles did it when they were young growing up on Kauai and hunting for a family of 13 kids .... only experienced it once and that was enough for me....
    At least 3 guys.... two strong ropes, a couple good stout knives and the dogs.... head up into the valley.... dogs chase down the pig and corner it.... didn't have catch dogs to go in and hold the pig on the farm so the dogs pretty much just located and kept the pig in one place....
    Two of the stronger brothers each rope the pig... hopefully get the front, preferably the head and one leg with one rope (especially if its a boar with tusks and the back end with the other.... pull those ropes around opposing trees and hold the pig.... the third guy gets to go in and do the honors with the knife to heart, lungs and or throat....
    I'll tell you... if you're the guy with the knife... you make sure those other two have that pig good and strong before you go in... and you make sure more than once... alot of yelling back and forth... sort of organized chaos over the barking of the dogs... I've heard stories of one brother letting go of his rope just for a laugh.....
    No firearms.... everyone knows how to run fast and climb trees in a split second.... I always looked for the nearest tree when hunting pigs...

    Yup... lots of good stories and memories... I'm too old and slow these days... :0)

    Boars and knives are for sissies. Olden folk used spears to hunt Brown bears :)

    Not that I would do either. :)

    When I was a kid we used to hunt sabre tooth tigers with a stick! [LMAO]

    I'll try the boar, but I'd have to admit the limits of my courage with a bear. Anything that thinks I'm a tasty snack scares me.

    Umm I carry a decent sized blade with me..But generally I don`t have to stick one after I stick him with a 165 grain bullet from a 300 Win Mag.[LMAO]
    He`s usually good and dead before I get to him.[axe]

    Ummm BlackJack, from what Ive understood the pipies tend to view whatever they can get ahold of as a tastey snack includeing people...at least as much as a bear. Main up side to the pigs is they dont smack you so you mostly just have to watch the mouth and they cant climb trees.
