If you visit the Caza y monte Facebook page, you'll quickly see just how many wild boars are running through the hills of Turkey, as their posts are littered with action-packed hog hunting videos. One of toughest game animals that hunters have ever pursued, wild boars are as aggressive as they are resilient, and hunting them with the wrong approach can presents the possibility of humans finding themselves in a dangerous predicament. However, perhaps it's the element of danger that makes hunting them so popular, as the vast majority of hunters have a wild boar hunt somewhere on their bucket list.
When things don't go exactly according to plan, it's simply not enough to insert yourself into their habitat and wait for the opportune moment to shoot. It's common for hunters to chase them into the backcountry for a finishing shot, which can lead to things going sideways should a boar feel cornered. And, as you're about to see, it can get downright dangerous when the tables do turn.
Caza y monte also has a YouTube channel that features boar hunts, wing shooting, hares, coyotes and roe deer. It's pretty obvious that these folks have a lot of hunting experience. Fortunately for us, they love to share.
As far as wild boars go, they are some of the most aggressive animals that you can hunt, and aren't for the faint-hearted. Boar hunts in Turkey range in price from $1,700 to $2,000 and are professionally managed by the hunters that love to target them.
It's just that you may have to plug a charging pig that could weigh over 650 pounds. Do you have what it takes to shoot one of these beasts?
