Wild boar hunting in Romania


Recommended Posts

I had little time for hunting lately because I have been very busy due to family expanding (my first daughter, hopefully she will become a huntress ūüėÖ)¬†and to some work responsibilities.¬†

However, I managed to stalk 2 nice boars (a good size 4-5 years male and a gold medal old tusker). The green grass of the spring was irresistible for them and the full moon provided enough light for my trusted Leica Magnus 2.4-16x56.

The first one is the young male. A very well developed for his age. I feel sorry somehow for hunting him, a male like this will become a gold medal in another ~3 years.

The old tusker came 2 weeks after.

This one was starting to have problems feeding himself and would get weak and "surrender" to wolves in maximum 2 years

The Norma Oryx bullet worked perfectly in both cases (not that would be very important in an ear shot :D )

When I will have some time, I will mount the tusks on proper wooden boards. Until then, they are filled with epoxy resin and oiled to prevent cracking.
