The Boar, Custom Handmade Survival Knife

Wild boars are dangerous in the bush. Irresponsible farmers. Their hogs get loose, head into the bush and survive and prosper.

A few years ago a man squatting in the bush raised pigs. Lots of pigs. He ran out of money and decided to let them out to range. They ended up invading some folks’ garden. 6 times, each time more came. The folks hiked to the location were he had his pen. Left a note. The second time a note on a tree beside his road. Full days warding off the pigs. The third day they visited his 85 year-old mother. Invited her and her son to dine. They ignored the folks invitation.

The boar was at least 400 pounds. The pigs were digging up their gardens, they dug up a 5 year-old apple tree. The promise of a full root cellar in the fall was evaporating. The folks knew this was a problem. The Forest people got involved. Told the folks they could shoot them on site. They asked if the police could help. The police said if they didn’t deal and work it out they would come in. If they came in they were going to do something….nobody needs that, the folks thought.

Word got out that his boars were in the bush. In a couple of weeks the pigs and the squatter were gone.
