Stalking Boars by PSE’s Pedro Ampuero
Wildboars in Spain have always experience a huge hunting pressure, and can get really spooky.
This pressure has made them be most of the time nocturnal, which makes really hard to hunt them.
Luckily, it has been a great year of acorns, and we have been seeing some boars at last day looking for them.
This has allowed us to spend some days trying to stalk boars, which is way more fun than waiting for them in a tree. They have an awesome nose, but the hearing and eyesight is not as good as deer, so you can get closer. I shot this young boar from 30 yards.
Its getting colder every day, and I hope to be able to drop some more during the last month of the season.
Good luck all in the woods,
