II-176b A04 Shotguns before used to have two shots, modern ones have five. They used Spanish cartridges because they were cheaper. They bought them in Elizondo. To hunt wild boar, they did not form groups as big as they do now. Two or three people got together. It was very difficult to find them, there were not so many as there are now. There are less rabbits and hares now, maybe because they spread a lot of poison in the mountains nowadays. Some say that they the pigeons do not stop to rest in the woods here because there are enormous cornfields in France where they eat their fill.
