Athina Sporting is now taking bookings for a driven wild boar hunt in eastern Portugal on the 26th and 27th of October 2013. The area has not been hunted for boar in the last two years and holds a large population. We will hunt as a party of 12 to 15 guns, shooting boar driven by dogs and beaters out of the surrounding countryside. There are no bag limits and no additional trophy fees for larger tusked boar. As these are entirely wild boar on unfenced ground, combined with varying levels of skill and experience in the shooting line, it is difficult to estimate the bag, but on previous hunts every gun has managed to shoot boar on both days.
We stay in a really nice local hotel, well used to hunters, with buffet breakfast and late bar, and we eat at a local restaurant - Portuguese food is very good and very plentiful! The weather in October will still be warm, so this driven hunt will make a change for anyone used to hunting boar in Scandinavia and Easter Europe.
The price £1,650 includes two days of driven boar shooting, airport transfers, full board accommodation, annual rifle permits, compulsory annual hunting insurance, soft drinks, 4x4 transport during the hunt and professional guiding. Rifle importation is straightforward on a European Firearms Passport and takes approx. 6 weeks to arrange for non-EU residents. The use of shotguns and solid slugs is permissable. Moderators are highly illegal in Portugal!
Additional fee for non-EU residents: Portuguese firearms importation permit (for non-European Union residents) £19 and Importation permit administration fee (for non-European Union residents) £55
The hunt includes:
Organisational services to advise on and select flights on behalf of the client
