In the southeast province of Quebec, there is a wonderful farm in Sainte-Hénédine known as The Hunter’s Farm.
The owner raises wild boars and breeds elk and deer.
The boars stay in very strong, fenced corrals inside of other fenced-in corrals.
They are extremely powerful and do not always play nice with their own kind.
Many boars have brown striping across their shoulder to hind. In a series of nurseries, young boars work out who is top pig. This area of the farm is pretty noisy all day long.
In long, open spaces and shaded fields, deer and elk roam as they please.
The owner also harvests meat and pelts himself, butchering and freezing product for the restaurant industry.
When hunting season starts, he allows licensed sportsmen to come in and thin out his herd.

I got a wonderful back scene view of the owner feeding deer and elk, cautiously walking all around my car within arms’ reach. What a thrill it was.
