CHARACTERITISCS

Wild boar are found all over Spain. This animal can be taken while you are hunting other specie, but special hunts for wild boar can also be arranged. The best way to hunt it, is waiting for it in its feeding areas at night, which is when these animals are most active. We have territories, which due to their special characteristics, boast extensive wild boar populations and therefore provide the best opportunities to obtain great trophies. Wild boar in driven hunts, (10 to 15 hunters), is the most popular way of hunting this animal, among Spanish people.
