    gunshot, dogs, loud voices are noises that scare them off usually. they are strong and stubborn so fence needs to be strong. walls are even better but costly. electify fence if possible too.
    did read that there are human foods they dislike intensely so a mix of these things can be spread about. apparently human hair too can put them off.. much depends tho on what the rewards are in your garden i guess.

    “Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. But if you wish to know what a man really is, give him power. This is the supreme test. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except on the side of mercy.”

    “You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home -- all the more powerful because forbidden -- terrify them. A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.”

    There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself. -- Johann Sebastian Bach.

    They are basically turning the turf over, looking for whatever is buried.
    Holes all over the place, so cutting the grass next year is going to be fun.

    No help to your situation, but I love a wild board saucisson.

    although, thinking about it - any saucisson makers in your area, they may know local hunters?

    I know the local hunters.
    One lives next door, but they are not allowed to hunt in my garden, due the proximity of other houses.

    I have found where they are coming in, so Imam going to try and set up an alarm to scare them away before they get in my garden.

    Electric fence would be just the job if the electricity was coming from the mains. You might just get some free wild pork to stock up your freezer. Not sure how effective a normal electric fence would be - as kids we were always fascinated by them, and if I was by the fence woe betide anyone who brought his ears within my reach
    I just dropped in, to see what condition my condition was in

    Is this what he does when he's not running the local mosque?

    I've been zapped by electric fences a couple of times when taking short cuts.

    Electric fences will work for most animals - they keep horses and cows in so a little 150kg boar should be no problem.

    We have holes in our lawn but that's just Border Terriers.

    Having seen the carnage inflicted on fields, allotments, gardens, forests etc by Wild Boar, I feel guilty moaning about worm casts.

    Good luck.
