Wild boar hunting in Austria
Scientific name: Sus scrofa
The Eurasia boar is the largest of its kind and has not yet been domesticated because of its aggressive behavior.
The European wild boar may be hunted in all Central European hunting areas except the high mountain regions. Wild boars are considered Europe’s only “Dangerous Game” animal. Old males can reach a live weight of 450 + pounds and achieve their sharp tusks about 8 inches. This tusks are the main trophy of a boar. Often the skin gets tanned and used as carpet or the taxidermist does a shoulder or full mount.
In temperate climates, Central Europe boars develop the highest population density in deciduous and mixed forests, which have a high proportion of oak and beech and in which there are marshy areas and similar clearings.
During the whole year. Females with babies partly protected.
Mainly November up to January
The hunt on Wild boars can be done by stalking and sporting and take place in the early morning and late afternoon and sometimes during night with full moon.
In addition to our spot & stalk hunts we perform classical European society hunts for groups on our places in Austria and Hungary. During this exciting type of hunting can be shot next to wild boar, red deer, fallow deer and mouflon. Professional organization, dog handlers, beater and guides guarantee the tremendous success of our driven hunts.
