Boar Hunting Tip: Aim lower behind the shoulder than you would other big game. You will avoid the hard-to-penetrate armored area around the upper shoulders, usually hitting both lungs and possibly the heart for an instant kill. If your shot is a bit high, you will likely damage both shoulders, preventing a wounded boar from charging.
A high-caliber rifle is essential to penetrate a Russian Boar's thick hide. I cover recommended calibers further down on this page.
Boar hunts provide individual hunters and groups with an exciting, memorable, affordable, professionally guided spot and stalk hunting experience. And there's no better place to hunt Boar than at Stonebridge Boar Hunting Preserve.

There will be up to three hunters for a guide, few enough to ensure you get the personalized attention you deserve for a perfect hunting experience.
Proceeding to the appropriate hunting area is usually done on foot to avoid spooking the hogs. However, we will use ATVs to transport hunters with special needs, and transport harvested Boar.
No. Russian Boars are native to Europe and Asia. Therefore, they're also known as European or Eurasian Boars. Hunting enthusiasts introduced Russian Boars into North America for sport hunting, and they remain the highest quality hog for hunting.
Mature males can weigh between 440 and 660 lbs, and mature females are smaller and generally run between 220 and 440 lbs.
Russian Hogs are extremely intelligent, adaptive, and robust. So they can thrive just about anywhere. That's a problem because when they escape, or are released, into the wild, they use their long snouts and tusks to rummage for food, damaging crops and the natural habitat of competing wild and domesticated animals. Stonebridge takes extraordinary measures to control its Russian Boar herd.
Russian Boar have an extremely thick, tough hide. There's also an armor-like cartilage chest cavity. Therefore, you need a higher caliber cartridge and load to ensure you inflict enough damage to kill the hog. That's important because a wounded boar will sometimes charge you. A boar's heart is lower than in other big game, so you aim lower to avoid that protected chest area.
So, you'll hunt...
