Review

"If you've ever thought of hunting wild boar, this book offers the guidance and incentive needed to make it a reality."--Daily Gazette

From the Back Cover

If you’ve ever complained that hunting season doesn’t last long enough, you’ll love wild boar. From dangerous close-up shots behind dogs to quiet stalks in the deep woods, hunting the wild hog provides some of the most thrilling action anywhere. And because the wild boar is an introduced species that often wreaks havoc on native habitat, most state game agencies encourage hunters to take these adaptable creatures. For the hunter, that means nearly unlimited opportunities year-round across North America. In this complete guide, veteran boar hunter Todd Triplett details everything you need to know to take these tasty game animals, including:
Distribution and history
Scouting for prime habitat, bedding areas, and food sources
Interpreting sign like tracks, scat, rubs, and wallows
Hunting over bait, still-hunting, and hunting with hounds
Special considerations for hunting in the off-season
Pursuing wild boar across North America and around the world
Hunting javelina, the wild boar’s distant relative in the Southwest
Chasing the warthog in Africa, the ultimate in hog hunting
Preparing wild boar for the table and taxidermist
And a host of tips for a successful hunt
Based on the knowledge gained from a lifetime of hunting, The Complete Book of Wild Boar Hunting is an unsurpassed introduction to a fascinating sport.

By G. McNichols on February 2, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This is a great book for new hog hunters and has several useful thoughts for the more experienced. Of the 216 numbered pages 203 have informative content. Within the 203 pages are 97 B&W photos. The photos range in viewable quality from good to poor with only 8 photos being so difficult for me to discern what I was looking at that they were useless to view, however, the remaining photos were much appreciated. Well worth the $18 I paid but I'd be disappointed had I paid the $26.95 sugg. retail. The author sounds like he has the knowledge and experience to improve on this book by going into more detail about hunting the American wild boar. Also, I would've liked more information dealing with anatomy and shot placement and could have done without the chapter on hunting warthogs. I found this book to be an enjoyable read and I'm glad I have it in my library.

For a book that claims to be a "complete" book on wild boar hunting, a lot has been left to be desired. The author leaves nearly everything unsaid. For example, he goes into detail about the importance of finding sign, but there is not one picture of a wallow, a hog track, scat, etc. There is zero information on field dressing hogs, where the vital areas are for shot placement, etc. This book is generalized, explaining the importance of most things but falls short of explaining HOW to do them. I was very disappointed with book, which is really nothing more than a photo album of the author with a bunch of dead pigs.

I purchased three books about hunting wild hogs and this book was somewhat informative but could not hold a candle to "Year of the Pig". Buy "Year of the Pig" rather than this book. You will be glad you did.

I am almost done with this book. It was a valuable resource, but I wish there was more content. Specifically I wish he included a chapter on stories. He does have a bunch throughout the book, but I find these stories I learn the most from. You get the best sense of theory vs reality.

So to the author: if you ever write another edition, please include a chapter on stories of you, your friends. In the different hunting regions.

Also one more thing. I wish there were more diagrams. It has a ton of great photographs, but I was pretty shocked the absense of diagrams, whether it be the target zone of a pig, or weaponry. The descriptions of these are great, but they need pictures. We live in an age of google, but I would've liked more diagrams in the book.

This book is pretty comprehensive but not extremely well detailed. It is, I suppose, written for the beginner to intermediate level Hog Hunter. I was a little disappointed.

Good as far as it goes. I grew up in the very southern part of Arkansas and have killed a wild boar with a bowie knife alone not out of want but because it was all I had at the moment. Wild hogs were a danger were I grew up with people being seriously injured. You were not always the hunter.

Pretty straight forward stuff but I did learn a thing or two from this book. Might want to look for a used book to save some cash. Its a book that once you've read it and hunted pigs for a few times you won't need it anymore

This was a good book, but I think it could have been better. I'm not sure what to expect from a hunting book since it was the first one I read. I guess I expected a more facts instead of the number of hunting stories.
