Swedish Wild Boar

Inläggav jonher » 06 jun 2010, 21:49

Hi all,

In March I was lucky enough to travel to your beautiful country and participate on my first ever wild boar hunt.

Due to heavy snow in the area, hunting from a post was the only viable option and at this time of the year only 1 year old pigs (the perfect eating size) can be taken. The hunting took place outside a small town in Sweden called Kisa and was about a 6.5 hour drive from Oslo.

We were instructed by the organiser, that if we shoot a pig to leave it lying there as there is a strong possibility that more will return, he wasn't wrong!

At 8pm after 4 hours of waiting in temperatures around -10 and in near darkness, three young boar finally showed up at my post appearing from the forest in the background. I watched them for 5 minutes until one finally moved away from the others and stood broadside. I shot it in the area marked with a red circle, it ran about 7 meters and dropped dead in the area of the green circle.

After 2 more hours of waiting another two young boar returned to the post, they sniffed the dead pig and then went about feeding. I waited till one of them presented a clear shot and shot it in exactly the same location as the previous one, it too ran off to the right and dropped down dead right beside the other one which was already lying there!

Here is a pic of the two boar lying on the road in the headlights after dragging them through 3 feet of snow

The larger male weighed in at 40kg and the smaller female at 32kg

Caliber was 6.5x55 and 155 grain Lapua Mega at a distance of approx 25 meters.

I hope to plan a return trip in the Summer

Hi Jonathan

If you want to hunt wild boars within three hours from Oslo, you´re welcome to visit Tingsgårdens jakt outside Grästorp (about 30 km east from Trollhättan). They have about 120 acres where they keep boars and red deer. Hunting season has just begun.
There´s a website in progress, unfortunately only in swedish, but it does have some contact info. The price is also reasonable.

Hi Per,

Thank you for the info :D 3 hours from Oslo is certainly more appealing than 6.5.

Do you have information regarding the prices as the website is not working at the moment?

Thanks again
Jonathan

It costs 1 800 sek per day. This includes one animal, boar or deer (no meat). If you´re planning to shoot a bigger boar or deer there´s an extra fee for the trophy.
They also have an accomodation on the land. I think it costs around 300 sek/night.

sorry about the web address
