Fellow Boar Hunters,
Gaston Phoebus offered this advice in the 1500s concerning wild boar hunting in his epic manuscript, Book of the Hunt:
"Hold your spear about the middle, not too far forward lest he strike you with his tusks, and as soon as the point has entered the body, take the haft of your spear under the armpit, and press and push as hard as you can and never let go of the haft; and if the beast be stronger than you then you must turn from side to side as best as you can without letting go the haft, until God comes to your aid or other assistance reaches you."
