    No offence, but I'm curious to know why?

    I wouldn't call it hunting, but see it as a method of reducing their wild pig population and it looks quite effective.

    we're poles apart Josh, in your case where you have a pig problem, then culling them by humane means is acceptable sometimes necessary. Me I'm a sometime pig hunter for sport Dogs ,table etc. Up here the pig numbers are limited. I have just been out now for 3hrs and didn't get the dogs on to a pig. I know the area and expected a run. When I see a guy sitting in a stand shooting pigs (very impressively) it just saddens and sickens me. To me it's kill for look at me sake. I had the unpleasant experience this year of being involved with such a hunter. Yes he wanted a kiwi experience ,yes he could handle a bit of the rough stuff. Well fuck me all he could talk and drink about was the great hunting they do and how satisfying it was. Yet on the kiwi safari the dude wouldn't even leave the walking track by himself, and the distance he walked was only 200mtrs from me then fuck this he says it's a bit to hard basket. I guess over seas hide shooting is deemed to be sporting with driven hunts the norm, but to me this subsistence hunter of way to many years, it just saddens and sickens me.

    So chasing a pig with dogs n holding them is humane......?? Overseas driven hunts as josh said is a way of reducing wild pig populations as in some areas they have real issues n the pork is not wasted n to be fair these pigs would piss over the average nz pig dog.

    And chasing pigs with dogs here is another means/way of controlling/harvesting the pig population here as I don't think too many people would fancy being a 'beater' chasing pigs through thick scrub gorse etc to some dude waiting to shoot them. Horses for courses.....

    Fair enough. I wouldn't like it seen where pig numbers were low so definitely see where you're coming from. If they're culling/shooting them for management reasons I'm happy with it, but like you, if it's for sh*ts and giggles and ego's I'm not so keen. Like any game animal in NZ I appreciate them as a resource rather than a pest, even though they do a lot more damage than deer etc.

    WTF is up with everyone. Driven bore is how they do it over there and how they have done it for hundreds of years. The game populations are managed for this sort of hunting. How is it less ethical than shooting anything else by any other method in this universe?

    Just imagine what they think of the people over here letting dogs bail/hold them and then going in and sticking them with a knife. I don't do either but I know which one I'd rather do.

    I've actually done this myself in France. They use mongrel chasing dogs to drive the boar, all they do is trail bark behind the boar....driving it towards the guns.

    I really enjoyed it and it certainly wasn't easy. That guy in the vid was filmed for a reason...he's the man at that style of shooting.

    Driven boar is the style of hunting they developed for hunting and has gone on for centuries in Europe. I have no problem with it myself, and compared to nz pig hunting its a lot cleaner all round. I personally don't mind the nz style either (my family were all pig hunters, I even have some home movie footage from my grandfather from the 1950`s, which I reckon would be some of the earliest pig hunting footage in nz). But from an animal ethics point of view I think driven boar is cleaner.

    Anyway, that dude could shoot.having done it myself I know how hard it is and he made it look easy.
