Wild Boar hunting in Argentina
Wild boar hunting can be done all day, but it is much more effective at night, since they are nocturnal animals. A short ride will then put you in the designated hunting area, and the hunting can be arranged in 1×1 or 2×1, depending on your preferences, as well as the number of hunters.The ancestor of the domestic pig, the wild boar has a heavy body covered with dense, bristly hair, short legs and a long snout.
Wild boars live alone or in small groups of up to 20, with male separate from, but remaining close to, the females. Since they are of nocturnal behavior, evenings are more productive and mornings can be more unpredictable, they forage over a large area for food, digging for roots and bulbs and also eating nuts and a variety of other plant material, as well as insect larvae, and on occasion, carrion.
An agile, fast moving animal, the wild boar is aggressive if alarmed; males use their strong tusks for defense. Big males are commonly seen alone but it is not rare to see them in groups mixed with females and young boars. An adult male will normally weigh from 150 to 250 pounds. The males have tusks, both on the lower and upper jaw, usually they get longer and thicker with age, but genes play a very important role in the growth as well as the right diet will also encourage tusks to develop better.
Wild boar rest in shelters, which contain insulating material like spruce branches and dry hay. These resting places are occupied by whole families (though males lie separately), and are often located in the vicinity of streams, in swamp forests, in tall grass or shrub thickets.
