    Wild boar hunting in Romania

    A picture sent to me by a friend who organizes nice wild boar hunts

    Wild boar hunting in Romania

    The driven hunt season for wild boar is ending in Romania (allowed until last day of this month), I had some great hunts and I managed to shot 3 piglets in total. No big boar in my scope at driven hunts but my "luck" does not surprise me To be honest, I had a 3 years old male boar in 25m from me but the slug was diverted by a tree branch and he went away. 2 of my piglets. Small but tasty It was not the case for my friends, a nice season for most of them... A gold medal boar hunted by a gamekeeper 2 weeks left, hopefully I will have the chance to shot at least one big boar this season. If not, no problem, we are allowed to hunt wild boar males all year but the method will change in order to not disturb the sows (high seat and stalking)

    Driven hunting in Romania

    Driven hunting is not only about big game in Romania. Well, in my case it is, I spending most of my time in the mountain areas but once in a while I will also go to a small game hunt. This time I had a very bad weather with temperatures bellow -7 degrees Celsius and a constant wind (which will make it worse). Here we could see the beaters at big distance from us... ...and here me with one of my hares. 2 shot, 2 missed by me. We have big problems with hares on most of the hunting associations due to a mixture of factors (modern agriculture, poaching with Greyhounds, insufficient funds allocated for fox hunting and pest control) but here I have seen a decent amount of them.

    Driven hunting in Romania

    2 great boars from the last weekend - 200+ kg and a young one of ~ 150kg. The boars from mountain areas are smaller but the breed is pure and the tusks are usually bigger. Nothing on my name, I had 2 close encounters with bears (a small one and a really large one - more than 450 CIC points) but they passed trough without making any problems. We also had great dogs with us (sadly, not in the picture)

    Anytime I think that I will fly to UK sooner (my employer is about to sign a new contract with an UK partner)

    Driven hunting in Romania

    This one was hunted by an old hunter at a driven hunt in an area next to the one I'm hunting. It is no additional cost for members

    Driven hunting in Romania

    2-3 drives, depending on results, weather and terrain. We could never do 9-10 shorter drives because the dogs will chase wild animals at large distances. It is not a rule that the biggest boars are shot at night because those are very careful (is easy to hunt a boar at feeding points but is not so easy to hunt a big male. I had to wait for more than 6 hours in cold weather for such a large male once) . I will search some pictures with big tuskers hunted in driven hunts but my gallery is huge

    ....and yes! The technical issue was generated by some sort of content limit for a post. Could be this increased?

    My red stag saga

    16.09, evening, 'Molidis' - The first roar is early, 07:09 PM. When the sun goes down, 2 females and a calf are showing in the clearing at ~140m, close to an apple tree. After a while a young male is also exiting the protective forest. He had decent antlers for his age but it was in a bad physical shape (too weak for this period of time, we also discovered later some strange things on kidneys and lungs) and I received the permission to shoot. I would normally wait for a better position and to come closer but the wind was changing and the oldest female was already alerted. I take the shoot despite the bad position and I aim so that the bullet will exit trough his chest. The females are jumping back in the forest and the stag will start running down in the opening. I start smoking a cigarette (to give him time to lay down) and we start moving to the place of the shot. It's already dark so we need to use the flashlight. Nothing! Not a single blood drop. I could not explain since I remember that the red dot of was in the right place. We start going down on his path but we are unable to see anything until we start hearing some big noise in some thick bush. He was down and we forced him to flee!! Damn! Next time I will smoke at least 2 cigarettes! At 20:56, despite the gunshot and the flashlight, another female with a calf is exiting the forest. 17.09, morning, "Molidis" - Back for searching the stag. On the road to forest meadow we see a promising roe buck, another one that should be hunted and a roe deer. We start to search uphill but without luck. On the top of the hill, right when I was thinking to go back to take a dog, my companion finds the first blood on a branch. The shot was high and with no exit wound, internal bleeding. From that point it was easy, it was no way to go left or right due to the trees and rocks and the blood trail was constant. I found him after 200m but a lynx was faster than me. The fat from the near of his anus is eated first and this one was hungry, he also took large pieces from back legs. We are quickly opening him to throw away the internal organs and the blood. After that we used a large amount of nettles to fill him (something traditional to prevent meat damage during warm weather around here) . We took the head and rushed back to the car and further to a hill in order to call for help and to drag the carcass My aim was poor or the stag moved, don't know. The entry point was trough the left back leg and I found the projectile in the skin, under the right front leg. The damage was done to the muscles, kidneys, stomach, liver and to the right lung. No major bone was hit, except for 2 broken ribs at exit. Back to my car, a small bear was looking at me from less than 20m...

    My red stag saga

    09.09, evening, "Boburi" - The weather is too warm. The group of males splitted in search for females. I was able to see a group of 6 roe deers 15.09, evening, 'Molidis' - wind and some rainfall . I decided to spend the night in an abandoned cottage there because a young stag was roaring despite the bad weather. The gamekeeper tried to provoke him but he scared (he was too small). At 03:00AM I see a 2 years stag. It is very cold in the morning and I manage to "sleep" 10-15minutes from time to time on a broken door. I could not sleep more because I could clearly hear some bears eating nuts nearby . I could barely control my car in the morning (wet slope) and I'm forced to use my Discovery 1 at maximum just to not crash on the trees. Here is the view from the cottage

    My red stag saga

    Back to my reds... The story of the first one: Just to avoid the mistakes from last seasons, when I had troubles trying to remember the details of the hunt in the correct order, I started to keep a journal. It was a good decision! I requested a permit from the first day of the season, despite the warm whether. The association was concerned that the meat will be damaged (this is an important sourse of income if is a large animal) so I promised them that I will buy it. The hunting area was new for me (and for the gamekeeper) and it was a mountain area. I prepared my trip by taking multiple hunting permits in that area during summer (roe buck and boars) and I'm glad about that because it was a great experience... Enough intro: 01.09, 05:30, 'Curmatura' - The gamekeeper knows about a group of 6 males (some of them "selections)" that are frequently seen in a pasture full of apple trees. Sadly, a farmer started to collect some hay early in the morning, disturbing the area. Animals seen: 2 roe bucks, a roe deer and a fox 01.09, 20:00, 'Valea Siriului' - I start stalking in an area where we knew about a large male. I'm waiting for the moon to rise in order to be able to use my scope. A huge stag is showing, vigorous body but with some asymmetrical antlers. The gamekeeper says that this was a trophy and not a selection, so I could not pull the trigger . Another young stag is appearing and stays for a while. The clouds will now block the moon light and we are in total darkness. Some small mammals (don't know the english names) are making funny noises in the trees until they are stopping suddenly. I manage to distinguish a low noise close to me and I decide to turn on my flashlight (I was unable to find a position that will protect at least my back). It was a good thing! A 2 years bear was very close to me and started to threaten and spit me. I'm also swearing him and I retreat keeping an eye on him... On the road back home I have seen 2 red stag females and a calf close to the road. Close to them, a wolf passed the road (probably he knew that he may find some food there). +3 foxes 02.09, morning, 'Curmatura' - Nothing. In the previous day, a farmer made too much noise in the area. 02.09, evening, 'Molidis' - We climbed for about 1h up to a high hill -"Monteoru". It was a nice view but no roaring there. One roe buck, a roe deer, a wild cat and a hedgehog

    I try to post the story for the first stag but I'm receiving the same error as at the roebuck topic... What is the problem? Is any limit for the message length or what?

    My red stag saga

    L.E. Is not difficult to prove the impact of wolves on other game species if we are comparing the natural increase of population for deer and boars from our country with the one from countries with no large predators (yes, we also need to consider bears and lynxes) . The harvest is smaller in our country and this is because they are eating young animals... We had a camera at a feeding point for boars and a saw had 7 small piglets. After a while only 5. Then 4, then 2...
