Wild Boar Hunting, Turkey

Hunting Season: No Close Season (we hunt in the autumn through winter months)

There are opportunities to hunt boar all over Europe, but after much research, in our opinion the best place to hunt Wild Boar is Turkey. Not only are the Boar plentiful with opportunities to shoot other game, but the prices are very competitive compared with other locations. The primary reason that Turkey dominates Wild Boar hunting is due to the complete lack of interest from the local population. Being a muslim country locals do not eat pork, and in some instances do not like even touching pigs. The immediate impact here is not only a high density but a very high chance of harvesting a big boar. The World record Boar was shot in Turkey in 2015, and weighed 355kg, forget about anywhere else,

Turkey is THE LOCATION FOR WILD BOAR. With Turkey being such a beautiful holiday destination, You could even take a day off during a family holiday; send the other half shopping while you go to get yourself a pair of Boar Tusks!
The Wild Boar is a stout, sporting beast that is extremely adaptable to any environment. He can be found all over Turkey but are most commonly found in wooded areas where the food is most plentiful, in the correct areas it is not uncommon to find large concentrations of the animals providing sensational opportunities for drives. Other successful methods include stalking them at dusk and waiting up high seats. The normal size for a boar shot on our hunting grounds will be in excess of 150KG with a 20cm tusk.
The winter months are the best time to hunt Wild Boar, as the food becomes scarce he can travel great distances in search of better feeding. The Rut is an excellent time to shoot Boar, there will be good opportunities to take large trophies. During the rut, the males are at their prime shagging weight and seeing them fight is not an uncommon sight and the trophies harvested are always 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.

High Seats
An effective method of hunting is from a high seat. It is a peaceful way to spend the day and requires very little fitness, giving the hunter some very unique insights into the behaviour of the fauna surrounding him. Prior to your hunt our guides will have done some reconnaissance and been feeding bait stations in the run up to your hunt so will know where some big Boars will be frequenting. The best time of year to harvest a god boar is in the winter when the Boar are travelling, However success can also be had during the summer months when the Boar will be feeding
 on farmers crops. During winter months hunters must be prepared for extreme cold conditions, and a good scope for shooting in half light is recommended. This can be done either before or after s driven hunt, and allows hunters access into areas that would not be suitable for a driven shoot.

Driven Boar.
Unlike Europe Turkey is not know for driven boar, but it is a practice that has soon been adopted, and successful boar drives can be organised in Turkey. We would need a minimum group of 5 hunters (preferably more), and can arrange drives where good opportunities at large boar will be had. Hunters will be strategically placed along exit routes as the woodland
is brought through with beaters and dogs. Driven Boar can be arranged in all terrain types, from mountain forest to the lowland farmland.
