Hunting is popular in Sweden, since we're basically still a country where most people live near a forest. The last wilderness of Europe, as the marketing people call it. There are supposedly more moose shot in Sweden than in the rest of the world combined in any given year... Looked up some stats on how many animals are shot in an average year:

100,000 moose
119,000 roe deer
19,000 fallow deer
3,000 red deer
70,000 hares
9,000 rabbits
63,000 foxes
32,000 badgers
7,000 beavers
33,000 wild boar
200 bears
90 lynx

Well, there's a lot of other animals too, lots of fowl, etc, but I just looked at mammals.

Most of our predators have been near extinction, the wolves still are, but the bear and lynx populations are now big enough to allow at least some hunting.

Hunting with bow and arrow is not legal though, nor is trapping.

Topper, Booth's bear is a monster! Anything with a 20" or greater skull is a heck of a bear. Keep in mind the world record black bear weighed almost 900lb so 700 is not a stretch. The only little gripe I had about Booth's kill is he used a crossbow. They do not take as much skill as a bow imo. Their range is a little better so you are not right in the action. He made a good shot though so that's what counts.

PS anyone who says hunting over bait is no fair for the bears should sit in a treestand 20' off the ground while a 400lb sow comes up the tree to eat you! It would blow your fucking mind how fast they get up there.

Per, are your Red Deer what we call Elk in Canada?

No. The British word for moose is elk, and in Europe we call your elks wapiti, but afaik there aren't any in Europe.
Elks (wapiti) are bigger than european deer. I guess that's why the British arriving in the Americas called them elk, since they were so big they figured they were elks (ie moose) rather than deer.

There was, now extinct, an Irish Elk, that was a huge beast, rack similarly paddled, but larger, than our moose.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Sometimes you turn the bear inside out with your Bennelli Supernova Tactical.

Booth goes on the defensive:

"This page is a David Booth fan page dedicated to giving you info on his career & Twitter feed. Refrain from negative messages because I dont judge and you know what? We all eat McDonalds who have slaughter houses worse then hunting."

haha
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Skyo, let’s not forget Davy is an amarican eh?

To kill a bar is considered a heroic deed across the line from way back....

Bornd on a mountaintop in Tennessee,
Greenest state in the land of the free.
Raised in the woods soze he knew every tree.
Kilt him a bar when he was only three.

DAVY, Davy Booth, king of the wild frontier!


Now, on a more serious note:
http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-c ... s-man.html

RCMP in Kamloops, B.C., have recovered the corpse of a man that was pulled from a car by a bear and stashed nearby in the woods. The dismembered and partially eaten body was discovered around 6 p.m. PT Wednesday by some hunters... The driver's window of the vehicle was down and there were numerous muddy paw prints, scratches, dents and other damage on the car... The hunters then searched the area and found the man's body buried about 120 metres from the vehicle.... When police arrived to investigate, a black bear that was spotted earlier in the area by the hunters returned to the scene. By the time the investigators returned a second time to recover the body it had been moved by the bear once again, and buried under brush, leaves and grass.

Sometimes you take a piss at the bear, and sometimes the bear takes a piss at you...



OK, so this guy went outside to take a leak when he saw a moose calf struggling in the rapid nearby. He asked his wife to get the ipad to get it on film, when suddenly a bear appears (probably thinking he might have the moose calf for a snack)...

Transcript:
"Look, Ola, there's a bear... Watch out! Run for fuck's sake, you stupid old bastard! Get up! Run for fuck's sake! Do you have shit for brains? There's a fucking bear!Good Lord! What the hell! What the fuck is going on?"*

Sorry, about the poor picture quality, she held the ipad in an upright position, and then youtube flattened it out to fit the frame. Still. This has been allover Swedish media etc. There's something hilarious about a guy in his underwear, a bear and an upset wife shouting abuse at her husband all mixed into one. :lol:

*I took some liberty with the curse word's, the one's she's actually using are "helvete" (=hell), "jävel" (=devil) and "faan" (nickname for Satan), but since English language cursing is usually more sexual than blasphemic I switched some to make it sound more natural.
