"Wormy Chestnut"

I read that a squirrel could climb a chestnut in GA and jump from chestnut to chestnut and get off in Main.

Probably an exaggeration. I doubt it could have made it past New Hampshire.

I believe the correct weapon for boar is a drilling.

Having said that, I once had a client who went boar hunting in Germany with a friend. The friend (equipped with a drilling) saw a boar and fired the rifle round at the boar and missed. The boar charged him and he fired the shotgun round and mostly missed again. The boar, on its way by him, used his tusk to remove the man's calf muscle.

You really need to make sure your shot counts with a boar, they are one of the game animals that can fight back.

Wild boars are mighty grumpy hogs.
There are a few places in UK that have them.

I learned about boar in CA in the 60s. Pickering were nasty wild boar. Hunters carried 45ACP as backup.

Like I said, 300 Blackout is a reasonable round in the AR platform. You at least have a second recovery shot with an AR. Bolt rifles, I'll stick to at least a 6.5 Swedish Mauser, up to 30-06 or 8mm Mauser. Anything over that does too much meat damage.

Tonight is four, sous vide beef shank steaks.

Ingredients in order:
Two are ground coffee, demerara sugar, ketsup (combo spelling) water, salt and cumin.
Two are wooster, soy sauce, brown sugar, water

12 hours at 130ºF. If they are not ready, I will do something else with them and have leftovers tonight. Scallop and prawn leftovers from last night that is.

With a combo of garden greens done gomae style as we have had a great run of weather and haven't even picked the last of the tomatoes let alone the leafy greens, and checking my calendar that must be a first.

Cheers everyone, it's good to be back in the diyAudio kitchen with you.

I've had good success with 129 f for 3 hours for shank. So I think you'll be good, Cal.

Oh man, a Drilling with an 8X57 bore is on my short list of holy grail rifles. Very uncommon here on the west coast.

I think it's unethical/ill advised to use any intermediate or smaller cartridge on boar, bringing enough gun makes much more sense on these rough and tough animals.

Boar hunting has become a sad issue around here. You have companies pretty much feeding hundred of beasts on a small surface and organizing a few big hunts per year, with occasional hunters just there for the kills (up to 120 kills per day). Since those guys aren't the best shots ever, they have to use big rifles (9.3mm is common). And what's left of the meat isn't very interesting, considering how much corn they've been given.

It was all over the news recently but "real" hunters have been denouncing that for a while. A pity.
