About the Author
Decades ago a ten year old boy dragged a small sled with a huge log of firewood through a freezing cold wintry forest terrified and scared by the blood-curdling shrieks, squeals, screeches and howls from unknown and unseen beasts roaming the forest. "Boar", his father said. "If they come any closer, climb the nearest tree". The boy ran for his life dropping his precious cargo in the process. Decades later on an early spring morning during an outing with the local forester, now a young man, the author caught a brief glimpse of a compact dark, bison shaped creature moving quickly and silently over the swampy forest floor as if it were floating. "Boar", the forester whispered. Ever since Peter Jaeckle has been fascinated by wild boar, their ways, their life, their resilience and their intelligence. Since then the author has studied these often maligned animals whenever and wherever possible in order to eventually share his knowledge of boar with other people. Today wild boar populations have grown so much all over the world to be an inherent danger to the environment, agriculture and people. On the other hand, boar are among the ultimate survivors. They share this privilege with rats and roaches - a somewhat dubious honor. Boar are very tasty. Hunters considered them a valuable food source for thousands of years. Peter Jaeckle writes his boar books with these hunters in mind. He wrote one of the first digital books on hunting wild boar in California back in the early nineties when the Internet and digital books were still in their infancy. His trademark series 'On Hunting Boar' with three books followed. The series consists of boar hunting manuals that expand on specific hunting methods, techniques and equipment. Peter Jaeckle is the editor and publisher of California Hunting Post, a scheduled publication on all things boar, big game hunting, hunting and fishing in general and on the protection of habitats and the environment.

Unlike most other hog hunting books that lack the hard details of the facts surrounding wild boars, this book has them again and again,
it is chaulk full of them. And, that is what makes this book valuable.
It is also short and to the point. It is a short book full of facts.
What I did wish the book had was a little more personality. An experience while hunting or oversight while pursuing hogs would be beneficial.
Still good, just not superb. .... Savannah WILL
