I was once told, in France, and in French but I think i got the right end of the stick, that the modern equivalent of pig-sticking (hunting boars with lances on horseback) involved riding next to fleeing boars and shooting them in the top of the head with a pistol.  Does anyone know whether that happens? I was also told you can tell the less adept boar hunters by their limps – they have shot themselves in the foot.

Here is a source of information on UK Wild Boar.

An Observer article and a BBC article.
