Hunting in Turkey
When you are looking for a spectacular scenery for the wildboar hunt, Turkey must be your prime destination. Compared to the central European drivenhunts the Turkish are much more demanding for the hunter, shooting distances are longer and often going to posts requires some physical ability to move in hilly terrain. But the size and the number of the boars is a big reward for all the efforts. it is not rare to have multiple big medalsize boars during the hunt and the biggest ones will be easily over gold medal. Season for the drivenhunts runs from September until mid february.
If you are more looking for individual hunting, night time stalking for wildboar is organized all year round and delivers always very big tuskers!
Other endemic species in Turkey is the Bezoar Ibex. Hunting is real mountainhunting and hunter must be prepared to take shot to a distance over 400meters. The horns of the Bezoar Ibex are the longest of all ibex species when compared to the bodysize of the animal and this trophy is without a doubt the centerpiece of any trophyroom! You can hunt Bezoar from August until the end on March, the peak season being November/december when the rut takes place.
