Q: I know you’ve hunted European wild boars. I am going to visit relatives in Germany next year and hope to get a shot at a real big one, a keiler. How much do the European pigs differ from the ones we have here in Oz? How hard are they to kill?
Horst Heinrich

A: European pigs are true wild swine and totally different from the feral variety we hunt in this country. They grow pretty big and all the ones I’ve seen are black in colour and covered with long, coarse bristly hair. The majority are heavily built and have long snouts. They are mostly shot by driving them or from a hochsitz; hunting them on foot can be dangerous if you wound one and it charges, as they are notoriously hard to stop

The late Nick Harvey (1931-2024) was one of the world's most experienced and knowledgeable gun writers, a true legend of the business. He wrote about firearms and hunting for about 70 years, published many books and uncounted articles, and travelled the world to hunt and shoot. His reloading manuals are highly sought after, and his knowledge of the subject was unmatched. He was Sporting Shooter's Technical Editor for almost 50 years. His work lives on here as part of his legacy to us all.
