I had a conversation with a hunting buddy of mine from Germany 3 weeks ago, after he sent me a pic of the latest Boar he had shot.
I was interested to get an idea how successful one might expect to be if up to the mark, so I politely asked him how many Boar he had shot to date this season, knowing full well he was an avid hunter and probably went out 2 or 3 times a week, here is his response - unedited.
since 1st of May this ist the 3rd boar I got. Meanwhile I got 12 roe bucks.
I am out in the wood about three ore four times a week. So it took me about 80 times to get 15 animals or 30 times to get one boar.
The problem is not to see a boar, the problem is to know that the boar You see has no young boars (Frischlinge). And this is the difficulty in the thicket I hunt in. So I hunt only with daylight.
For example last tuesday I´ve seen 3 female boars and 10 youngsters below 5 kg. For we dont hunt these lightweights and no mother boar I went home without any bag.
My friend (a guy who dont work, he only hunts) is out every day, also in moonlight and early morning.
He shot in the same time in the same area 16 boars.
So if You count the days, it took hin about 120 days. That is about 8 days per one boar.
You know that hunting is very easy. You only have to bee at the right place at the right time ;-)
