Boar Hunting With a Knife is Not for the Faint of Heart


If you really want to show that you're a tough and dedicated hunter, go boar hunting with a knife.

Boar hunting with a knife is a serious endeavor: you've got to approach an amped-up and agitated boar on foot and stab the animal while it tries to do the same to you and your dogs. Needless to say, a hunter who can handle that sort of hunt has some serious guts.

After all, things don't always go as planned on hog hunts.

Check out the video to see what it's like to go boar hunting with a knife up close and personal.

Pretty crazy hunt, right?

Give the guy credit: he dove right into the scrum after the hog. This is, of course, in stark contrast to the guy who hid in a tree while hogs attacked his dog.

The hunt appears to have been filmed in France. Other than that, I can't offer much information on the specifics of the hunt or exactly how it ended (though it does look like he ended up killing the boar).
