He can’t use his rifle: the boar is too close

Are you allowed to own firearms in France?
No, I'm not, because I'm not a hunter. A hunting permit is required. And with it, only a few small-caliber guns are allowed.

If you want to make is sporting, shoot something that can shoot back. Paintball is a fine example.
Actually hunting wild boars can be dangerous. Every year several hunters are injured by wild boars.

Now Imagine the scene.
We have all gathered in a rural area in the Lozère department. This is a big day.
Vasudev and shadow.97 are out picking mushrooms. Ahmad and aa1234779 have stayed at home to prepare the feast. In fact, they are watching the frightening episode of the X-files known as “Tooms”.
I, humbert and Maher have gone hunting wild boars. The other hunters are bewildered: who are these strangers ? Humbert is rapidly making things clear and say “Nous voulons chasser le sanglier”. Humbert and Maher look particularly determined. The hunters are finally inviting us into their hut. It is nearly 11am and the cocktail hour is approaching. Before providing us with a hunting dog, we have to show our skills. Humbert, Maher and I are enjoying this moment with pastis or fresh fruit juice, and dizziness ensues. After lunch, we are finally going to hunt the wild boars.
Suddenly, Maher is spotting something moving in the bushes, near Humbert: it is an enormous wild boar. Humbert is shooting the boar, it’s only 30 meters away, but the beast is now charging: it wants to make its assaillant trip and fall to the ground. Maher is aware of the danger: humbert won’t make it without an heroic act. He can’t use his rifle: the boar is too close and humbert is already on the ground, threatened by the sharp tusks of the monster. So Maher decide it’s time he fought back with a knife until mauling ends. It’s a success: Maher gained victory over the boar.
Thanks to Maher, there will be a feast for everyone.

What does he do with the boars after killing them?
Yes, the meat of boar is an upscale dish. They are hunting deers too.
The meat of wild boar is bit gamier than pig and it gives wild flavours.

Note that a wild boar is not a warthog: The latter are living in Africa. Wild boars are nocturnal whereas warthogs are diurnal. A Boar is larger and heavier than a warthog, the density of fur in boars is high while warthogs have a sparse cover of hair.

Here is the photo of a wild boar. In French a wild boar is known as a "sanglier".

Well, I logged on to the forum and my godfather Joel called me on the phone so I was unable to post.
He was the best friend of my father. He's 75 but he's still hunting wild boars in the forests. If humbert and shadow.97 are coming to France one day, maybe they will hunt wild boars too.

What does he do with the boars after killing them? Does he eat them? In my opinion if you kill just a few non-human animals in order to eat them, it's OK. I strongly oppose the indiscriminate killing of innocent non-human animals who pose no threat to anyone. If you want to make is sporting, shoot something that can shoot back. Paintball is a fine example.

The North American Bison was nearly driven to extinction in the late 19th century for this very reason. Back in 1995 with help from Canada the Grey Wolf was reintroduced into Yellowstone National Park after their specie was killed off by greedy cattle ranchers. As expected the park was inundated with deer who kept eating farmers crops or whatever other plant life they could find.

Microsoft Windows / Re: Windows 7 Component Store Cleanup - Rebase
« Last post by humbert on September 15, 2021, 10:10 PM »
Humbert made a fuss about windows 7 because he considers that windows 7 is obsolete. And he’s right but not for the good reasons. In fact, if you are analyzing the successor, windows 10, there is practically no innovation. Novelty is a marketing strategy for firms to earn more money.

W7 is obsolete not because it doesn't work but because it's no longer supported, and not just by M$. Are there hardware makers who continue to write drivers for W7? Planned obsolence has been central to electronics since Intel first developed the 4004 in 1971, or probably before that. I see no sense in continuing to run an unsupported OS when the current one can be had for free and, as you said, doesn't have all that many innovations. Notice that only Vasudev answered my question about who is still using W7, and even then it's due to reasons beyond his control.

I'm planning to go to W11 as soon as someone has a working copy with that secure boot garbage disabled -- and NOT because W10 doesn't work.
