Wild boar hunting
Wild boar is one of the most common and most numerous wild animals at the VREBAC hunting ground. The permanent population is estimated to be 300 to 400 animals. The condition of the population varies annually and depends on seasonal migrations and the yield of natural foods such as acorns, berries, and fruits.
Boars and juveniles:

• Spot hunting from a highly comfortable closed hut at feeding grounds
• Spot hunting from an open hunting watchtower
• Stalking in the morning hours (pirsch)
• Driven hunt with dogs in the autumn-winter period (October–January)
Hunting in the mountains is quite different from hunting in the lowlands due to the large presence of predators. Wild boars at our hunting ground are known for being very careful on the way to the feeding area and during the feeding. While wild boars have poor eyesight, only the brown bear has better developed smell and hearing senses. Safe shooting requires calmness and a lot of patience from the hunter.
It’s not uncommon for a hunt of an old high-trophy boar to sometimes stretch out into an all-nighter. Adult boars at our hunting ground weigh on average between 130 and 170 kilograms.
Based on our many years of experience in wild boar hunting, the client is therefore recommended to hunt with a larger caliber and a heavier magazine, such as calibers 30-06, 8×57, 300 win mag, and 9.3×62.
If the hunted animal is only injured, a licensed bloodhound dog is available to search for it. If the animal still cannot be found and it’s visibly injured, 50% of the estimated value of the trophy, assessed by PH, will be charged.
Wild boar (Sus scrofa) is one of the most widely represented and numerous wild animals at the VREBAC hunting ground. There is a permanent population estimated to be 300 to 400 animals. The condition of the population varies annually and depends on seasonal migrations and the yield of natural foods such as acorns, berries, and fruits.
The wild boar at our hunting ground is a purebred Sus scrofa. Throughout the history of the VREBAC hunting ground, there has never been the so-called “žirovanje” (leading domestic pigs to graze in the forest) and consequently no breeding of domestic pigs with wild boar.
The value of the trophies from the VREBAC hunting ground is highly regarded worldwide. Our hunting clients have hunted spectacular trophies in recent years, most of them being wild boar achieving a CIC score of 136.70 CIC, which puts us at the top of the list of the highest trophy-grossing hunting grounds in the world. More than 300 wild boar trophies awarded with a medal have been shot at the VREBAC hunting ground in the last 23 years.
The trophy value of wild boars at the hunting ground is affected by the selective shooting and the high presence of predators (bear, wolf, lynx, jackal, fox, and European wildcat), leaving only the strongest specimen to survive.
