I have shot many pigs in my time and there is a great element of risk from those big tuskers, especially when cornering them in blackberry stands. One of my mates had his calf ripped open and had 42 stitches put in. He now has a slight limp because of that.
Also, the amount of damage that pigs do to crops, is amazing.
Imagine one of these close to you...
