Thanks Mark :wink:

Those porkers are real Russian type wild boars not feral pigs. That Dude is awesome with that bolt action.  I found it interesting that they used Red Dot sights. Good looking rifle as well.

What kind of rifle was that anyway?  It didn't look like a standard bolt action.  :?   It almost looked like he wasn't lifting up on the bolt, but just simply pulling it back and pushing it forward again to chamber each round.

The action is called a straight pull bolt action. There have been seversl designs over the years. The Canadian Ross rifles used them as well as the K-31 Schmidt-Rueben, and Styer Manlicher.
 The only reason I knew anything at all about it was the K-31 rifles were a bargain basement priced surplus rifle just 2 years ago at $98 each. Now they are knocking on 300. Should have snagged one when I had it in my hands.

Gees,my eyeballs are getting ancient. The only bolt I saw seem to be a short lift type with a multiple ( artillery) lug head.  The guy I made comment about was fast in working the action, it seemed to me there was a lifting of the bolt handle. :-\

Did you notice, all shots were at running game !
In part 2 with all the porkers laid out is the traditional way of European hunters showing respect and gratitude to the Game. The Horns(  musical type) are the traditional instruments used to signal hunters in the Field that a Hunt has started or is ended.

There are different tunes for different occasions including part of the ceremony at the end. Hunting is not considered a Sport but an Art and there is a Dress Code!

Getting a Hunters License requires passing a stringent test including target shooting.  A 10 year old kid would not qualify.

Different countries, different rules.

He reloads the rifle at 1:10 to 1:20. It is just slow enough, if you are paying attention, you'll notice the bolt handle actually rotates to unlock the lugs, instead of being lifted.
