If you’re looking for a trophy hunt, the “shooting price” of the boar may depend on the size of its tusks, with record book class trophies adding sometimes thousands of dollars to the list price of the hunt. Exotic wild boar hunting in places like Argentina and New Zealand are typically in the $2,000-$3,000 range. The more expensive offers are usually combination hunts with other species including red deer, tahr, and even buffalo.

Most wild boar hunts are done either from high seats, or by driving. European driven hunts are a world in themselves, and there are many variations from country to country, and even within the country. The biggest challenge here is shooting running, which is becoming a lost art for modern hunters, and instant species identification. Thermal and night vision hunts are legal in a few Eastern European countries as well. Dogs are used to assist beaters in many European driven hunts, and the old tradition of hunting with packs of dogs that hold the boar in place until the hunters arrive and do the job with a gun or a knife is still alive on some parts of the globe.
