Wild boar hunting with dogs is allowed from October 1 until the end of February. In this hunt Nordic hunting dogs are used to follow the trail and scent of the boar and bark when they come upon the boar which alerts the hunter of the whereabouts of the boars.
At dawn we will go to the hunting area to look for fresh tracks of wild boars on the trails and at the feeders. We will also use the information obtained through the use of cameras in various parts of the hunting ground, mainly at the feeders.
Once we have an idea of the location of feral pigs and wild boar, depending on which type of pig is desired, we will put the dogs to the scent and tracks with the aide of GPS and radio signals which will keep us informed of the dogs position at all times.
Once we locate the barking dogs we will be able to assess the situation concerning the wild boars. Normally large groups of pigs excite the dogs so the hunter will have to approach the herd with one of our guides, and attempt to resolve the shot. Should a smaller group or even solitary boar try to get away from the dogs harassment the hunter must be prepared to move to one of the hunting grounds where the boar might escape in an attempt to cut off the path of wild boars and allowing a clear shot.
The hunt takes about 6 hours and this allows us to have several shots a day.
Undoubtedly, this type of boar hunting is the most exciting and presents more opportunities to shoot. The best conditions for wild boar hunting with dogs are days that are cold and with fresh snow and preferably little or no wind.
This form of hunting requires the hunter to be in good physical shape to endure trotting or running short journeys of up to 2 kilometers in the forest.
Boar hunting with dogs can be combined with Red Deer, Moose, Bear, Roe Deer, Wolf and Lynx. In regards to small game boar hunting can be combined with Woodcock, Duck and Goose.
