  • so we here with Wonderhart - Team Wild's official hungarian hunting destination and once

  • again we're after pigs

  • BIG PIGS

  • no hunting is ever the same which is why it's such an obsession for millions

  • of us across the globe

  • unfortunately i'm very much a self-confessed addict and need to have

  • another wild boar fix

  • Zoltan is once again guiding me this morning

  • from the outset we have no problem finding wild boar

  • but we do have a problem finding the right one for me to get my crosshairs on

  • so there's a couple of young sows down at the bottom of the hill

  • they are just feeding

  • we're looking for an older wild boar male

  • we don't think there's going to be one there

  • we've seen a couple of younger sows with piglets

  • this one looks like a yearling sow

  • quite small in the body with quite a short nose

  • but they don't seem too concerned by us

  • famous last words!

  • wild boar seem to be hyper sensitive...

  • ...or not give a toss

  • there doesn't seem to be any middle ground

  • so while they're being the former i'll take you through the kit I'm hunting

  • with today

  • so it's quite dark in here and we're hunting for wild boar

  • So I've been pretty specific about the equipment I've brought with me today with me today

  • For my rifle I've chosen a Ruger M77 Hawkeye

  • This is the 'All-Weather' variant

  • At £958.00 you get an awful lot of rifle for your money

  • 22"stainless steel barrel

  • fully synthetic stock

  • the classic mauser action with non-rotating ejector

  • in addition to that I can group three shots at one hundred yards on my thumb nail

  • but more importantly today is this

  • this is a new Zeiss 3-12x56T* Victory HT scope

  • Now this is a brand new scope that Zeiss introduced at IWA this year

  • three to twelve power magnification

  • 56mm objective lens and probably the most incredible light transmission

  • of any scope on the market. Zeiss claim ninety five percent

  • so in this dark canopy, that's pretty important

  • but most importantly above that is making sure what hits the wild boar

  • has got the right stuff

  • as usual I've brought my Lapua Mega

  • 185 grain

  • in .30-06 Springfield

  • now those bad boys when they hit the target

  • they pole axe pigs. All we need to do now, is find our keiler

  • i've always expecting to see something shootable todayand here we have a

  • good-sized group of wild boar at about 80 yards in front of us

  • I know their eyesight isn't good but I'm sure they suspect something

  • the big wild boar male closest to us gives a good stare in our direction

  • before going back to rooting around in the rich soil

  • Zoltan confirms he wants me to go for the tusker at the front

  • knowing my 185 grain Lapua Mega's pack a serious punch

  • I want to make sure my backstop is soil, not another wild boar

  • just one pig today, not two

  • eventually I'm happy taking the shot

  • the big guy is on his own. I hit him really hard and he is literally blown off his feet

  • another fantastic pig. Off my knee at about 65 yards I'm really, really

  • pleased

  • These Lapua Mega absolutely rock

  • I'll be interested see if this one exited

  • the last time shot a pig with one it didn't meaning it imparted all of its energy

  • right in the body of the wild boar. It did it's job absolutely perfectly

  • There's something about stalking this close to these magnificent animals

  • Now I know the wind was in our favour this time. It was kind of

  • swirling around so has been changing against us during our time here

  • but this worked absolutely perfectly

  • thanks so much to my Ruger

  • Like I said, it groups on my thumbnail and knocks over pigs. What more do you want?

  • congratulations

  • Wow

  • another beautiful pig

  • It's amazing. But this pig is not as big as some of the ones I've shot

  • but in comparison its tusks are HUGE as you can see, these incisors... they rub against

  • the uh... the bottom incisor rubs against the top incisor making them absolutely stuck inside and make them absolute you

  • razor sharp

  • this thing here

  • will cause a dog some damage if you wound it and send the dog in to find it

  • but he's actually a pretty looking pig. Like I said, not the biggest one i've shot

  • but a very handsome animal nonetheless

  • now as you can see

  • there is no exit wound here

  • the wild boar and I are given the traditional works

  • it's something i really enjoy when hunting in mainland europe

  • So Tamas, tell us a little bit more about the tradition of the leaves here because Hungary's got a lot of

  • strong hunting traditions

  • and this one seems quite poignant

  • It's like when

  • people die

  • and at their funeral

  • you give some

  • flowers to the grave

  • so it's

  • is coming

  • a nice traditionn

  • so we

  • have honour for the game

  • just almost like a mark of respect and a parting gift

  • for the bounty of meat we're about to receive

  • because the game has given its life

  • for our passion

  • and for our food

  • it's one of the things I love about hunting in Europe

  • there is that age-old tradition, thousands of years a celebration

  • it's not just sport

  • it's a harvest

  • and then we're showing respect for them

  • kinda makes me feel all emotional

  • I haven't been the only one hunting in this huge forest today

  • and all the wild boar make a great display in readiness for the ceremony

  • so this is what I love the most about hunting here in hungary

  • to these guys this isn't just sport, it's a way of life

  • and the celebration of the game shows the amount of respect they have for it

  • not only should you use the right equipment, you've got to make good shots

  • and get as close as possible

  • but as Tamas said before there's a hint of sadness not only are they celebrating celebration

  • the fact there's been a harvest but they're also slightly sad they've had to take a life

  • and this is the respect they have for their quarry

  • I'm really pleased with the wild boar I shot today

  • his impressive tusks will soon take pride of place on a wall back home
