Wild boar inhabits all but a few parts of Turkey. It is regarded to be a nuisance by the locals as they cause serious damage to cultivated land all over the country.
Turkey is unsurpassed in terms of both population and trophy quality in Europe. As much as it is a rarity, tusks measuring up to 30 cm have been collected on several occasions. However, tusks up to 25 cm can realistically be expected, while the average size can be considered at around 21 cm.
For individuals who hunt for the size, stalking in moonlight is a more productive way to hunt. For those who seek the company of fellow hunters as well as the joy of hunting, driven hunts can be organized.
