It can be a little hard for a North American hunter to understand the enticement of wild boar hunting. On the other hand they may relate to the chemistry of the sport if they are avid whitetail deer hunters in their own parts of the world. It is not the similarity of both animals but a special affinity for one particular game animal or the dedication to hunting it almost exclusively.
For most European hunters, stalking wild boar at night is the greatest challenge and a pair of ivory tipped boar tusks is the peerless trophy. It has been our experience over the years that some Europeans do not want to hunt anything else but pigs. We have had clients who came over to hunt wild boar three or four times a year and shot as many as they could each time. Outwitting an old boar in his own game requires a masters degree in hunting. Indeed stalking an old boar at night to get within a shooting distance of 40-50 yards is not a child’s play. It is an enchanting experience.
Our group of three hunters from Spain has collected 19 big boars in three nights. All the tusks were over 20 cm and some of them turned out huge. We thank these 3 musketeers for coming and hunting with us once more. They already signed up for another trip next year.
