or a spear and a knife?




7 HUNTERS FROM THE UNITED KINGDOM BAGGED 11 WILD HOGS
WITH A SPEAR & KNIFE DURING A MORNING OF HUNTING ON MARCH 30, 2008


Got to admire those Brits. I've known hunters here in Florida who told me that wild hogs had chased them up a tree. That's one reason a lot of hunters carry a handgun, as the rifle or shotgun usually gets dropped when the hunter starts climbing.
