Wild boar hunting is an extreme sport and can be quite dangerous and meant only for the thrill seeking hunters and sharpest shooters.
The following video below shows these hunters really taking this close quarter shooting at a really close distance. The problem is that these guys were pulling it in ways that most would deem unsafe.
Tell that to the boar about to bite their face’s off!
Check these mad pigs out:
Yes, its true that in the video just about every “safe shooting rule” in the book was thrown out the window while trying to get a shot at the charging boar.
From the perspective of the hunter when a wild boar is charging. There isn’t any place to hide, and you have a loaded gun in your hands you may not be thinking too clearly either!
In any event this is a animal that most know is a very dangerous animal and not to be taken lightly. Just make sure that you work out a system that your hunting partner isn’t too close to you, like in the video. Mishap can occur, be safe.
See legendary boar hunter Franz-Albrecht Oettingen shoot a running boar
Shooting a running boar requires special marksmanship skills, similar to shooting waterfowl or clay pigions. If you want to see some top notch skills in shooting a moving object, where you have to lead your aim at various speeds and range. Take a look at this video of Franz-Albrecht Oettingen hitting this running boar.
Looks like Franz is sporting a Sauer 202 (not sure though, if anyone knows please correct) with Aimpoint red dot, see the quick sight acquisition and lead, as well as the Blaser straight pull bolt action allows rapid follow up done with efficiency.
This guy is awesome and could possibly one of the best in the world when it comes to hitting a moving target.

This intense and adrenaline pumping boar charge ended a little too close for comfort.
Though I wouldn’t say they are exactly common, dealing with a boar charge is a distinct possibility any time you go into the woods in pursuit of hogs. The hunter in the video almost learned this lesson the hard (and painful way). Watch the video to see just how close that hunter was to being gored by that boar!
Now that was a close call! I wonder if he needed to change his drawers after that one. Ending a boar charge at your feet like that will work, but it doesn’t leave too much room for error.
