Eurasian wild boar
Eurasian wild boar is available in all over Turkey with great population and high trophy quality. These significant features of the wild boar, presents nice hunts and brings great success. In the mountains and hills, boars find ideal habitats with plenty of walnut trees and hazel bushes, which provide excellent feeding grounds for wild boars.
Although wild boar population is very good in all parts of Turkey, some areas stand out with its big tusks. These areas are mainly accepted as:
- Black Sea Region (North of Turkey)
- Central Anatolia – Ankara & Bolu
- Mediterranean Coast of Turkey (south)
Big tusks in some specific areas have made Turkey a well known wild boar destination and it seems like some new exceptional areas that are added recently into our hunting areas, will take these features of Turkey further.
Turkish boars are not only heavy in body weight, but possess also exceptionally strong tusks. The average length of boar tusks is 18 to 22 cm, with high-class being 23-32 cm.
Every year our hunters harvest very good number of big tusks, some of which are gold-medal trophies between 24 and 31 cm. The hunter can either wait at feeding grounds or water holes, or stalk along agricultural fields. It’s realistic to expect four to eight strong boars in 5 hunting days and if lucky, even more.
As Optimum Hunting, we have been arranging wild boar hunting trips in all over Turkey for many years.
