Wild boar are strong, solidly built animals with sharp tusks and a willingness to defend themselves vigorously. Boar are known to charge the hunter after a missed shot or a wound that is not immediately lethal; because of this, some of the earliest bayonets were actually used by boar hunters rather than military forces.
The winter months are the best time to hunt Wild Boar, as the food becomes scarce he we can travel great distances in search of better feeding. Our grounds are well managed and the result being that the Boar retains his territory. The Rut is an excellent time to shoot Boar, there will be good opportunities to take large trophies and the only time to see the boar in herds. During the rut, the males are at their prime shagging weight and seeing them fight is not an uncommon sight and the trophies harvested will be larger.
Stalking Boar can be a challenging task, with incredible hearing and that they choose to reside in heavily wooded areas makes it very challenging to get a good advantage on them. Therefore the most successful methods are waiting in a high seat or taking them on a driven shoot. A Driven Boar Shoot in Europe is one of the major sporting events for any hunter.
