Wild Boar Hunting, Croatia

Hunting Season: 1st September - 15th April

A driven boar shoot in Europe is one the major sporting events for any Sportsman. Croatia is known as one the finest destinations for Driven Boar, with high densities on the right areas. Unfortunately there are a lot of driven shoots out there on offer where the price is good but the quantity of boar is very low. At the real Big 5 we only consider locations where there are high densities of Boar, and we also arrange drives in a 1500 acre fenced woodland where we can guarantee the chance of seeing boar, whilst still giving them a sporting chance.

The minimum legal calibre for shooting wild boar is a .243 with a 85 grain or more expanding projectile, however much heavier calibres are recommended as the.243 really is not up to the job of dealing with a tonne of Wild Boar charging at you!

Wild Boar are incredibly strong and solidly built, with sharp tusks and a willingness to defend themselves vigourously. boar are known to charge the hunter after a missed shot or non lethal wound; because of this some of the earliest bayonets were actually used by boar hunters rather than the military forces. this makes for an incredibly exciting hunting experience with adrenaline pumping through the body from the beginning to the end of each drive.
Croatia is world famous as a destination for driven boar, largely due to the quantities that they have in certain areas. We have access to both wild and fenced areas and are able to encompass hunting in both. because of this we are able to guarantee that shots will be fired at boar during our trips.
Many outfitters offer very good value Boar drives in Croatia, but you get what you pay for. Although we can offer some very cheap deals for boar drives, we reccommend spending a little bit more to ensure that you get the ultimate boar experience. More often than not the cheaper offers turn out to be very disappointing with very few pigs even seen, then alone shot. We guarantee that all hunting takes place in only the best areas with high numbers of Boar where we guarantee the seeing pigs.
In Wild areas, The Winter months are the best time to hunt boar, as the food becomes scarce he will travel great distances in search of better feeding. Our grounds are well managed meaning that the boar will retain his territory. the Rut is an excellent time to shoot boar, there will be more opportunities to take large trophies and is the best time to see Boar in large herds. During the rut males are their prime shagging weight and seeing ferocious fights is not uncommon, and as a general rule of thumb the trophies harvested can be larger.
We also have access to some well managed fenced areas including a 1500 acre fenced piece of woodland. Although there are not many large trophies in this area we can guarantee seeing the animals without losing the sporting aspect of the hunt.Stalking boar is a very challenging task, with incredible hearing and that they choose to reside in heavily wooded areas makes it very challenging to get a good advantage over them. therefore the most successful measures are to shoot them from a high seat or in a boar drive.
A driven boar shoot in Europe is one of the major sporting events for any hunter. It is the most exciting and adrenaline fuelled hunting for boar anywhere in the world. The Europeans are well practised at this method with a group of 20 or so well trained beaters and dogs a large area is flushed to drive boar towards guns. Hunters will normally be strategically placed in high seats or blinds alongside their professional guides who will help throughout the hunt to help select shootable beasts and ensure safety at all times. Driven Boar can be arranged in all terrain types but is generally most successful in wooded areas. We would expect each gun to be shooting between 1 or 2 boar per day. no particular fitness is required but there may be certain drives where there is no vehicular access. We reccomend experienced hunters are best suited to this type of shooting due to the obvious threat to safety with any type of driven hunting. the shot will be taken at running targets so a good level of shooting ability is also required.
