Cold winter morning in the hunting ground.

I do not know about you. But whenever I go hunting to my friends first order of bussines is that we sit at the table and eat something good. I talked to my friend and I let him know that if I am going to be able I am going to stay in the high stand all night. He said I know if somebody can do it, that person is you!

And so we went. I came late because I was also working late but still, I was at the high stand at around 10pm. Perfect time for predators to come out. There were at least 7 different packs of Golden Jackals howling and at midnight one pack of wolves were heard in the distance. Then of course I was so tired from the whole week I must of feel asleep because wind woke me up at around 2am. That was that for that night.

Next afternoon we were talking about where do I want to go wait for the wild boar to come. And I said I do not know but my gut is telling me to go at the stand which just a few 100m from the house we were staying. Matthias said ok just go there and call me if something happens. I will not go hunting tonight. At around 9pm I have heard something in the distance. I prepared my Roessler Titan 6 packed with Pulsar F455 and waited. I could hear my heartbeat. The steps were getting closer and closer. And then silence. Minutes felt like hours, nothing. Then a branch broke and heavy steps were taken away from the feeding area. I was sure that this was it and nothing will come out.

Handloaded 7×64 with a Fox Bullet.

Silence was killing me but then I have heard light steps getting closer and closer. I looked through my scope and there he was. BOAR!

I waited as much to see and make a right judgement if this was really a male boar and it was! I aimed and took the shot, boar fell right on the ground. I knew that some of the best quality meat is going to be put on the table for me and my family.

It was one hell of a hunt indeed! Perfect timing and place to be hunting on. Were happy and I will return for sure. Return back to huntingnews.today stories.
