Wild Boar Hunting Safety Tips

Wild boar reach weights of 400 pounds, travel 40 miles per hour, are smart, have really short tempers, and protective armor plating over their shoulders. When cornered, they fight. They are not afraid of humans, dogs, or bear. It is common for hunters and hikers to be chased and injured by wild boar. Here are some general boar hunting safety reminders:

  • Keep a sharp eye out for pigs and do not let them get behind you.
  • Wild Boar cannot be threatened like bear can.
  • Carry a 10” Bowie knife with a lug to make stabbing easier.
  • Carry a few extra high caliber cartridges.
  • Never hunt alone.
