  Wild Boar Hunting in Pakistan 15 December till 15 March


Please note any hunting trip in this inaccessible area needs careful planning. A number of permits from local and federal authorities, specially import and re-export licenses for the firearms as well as permits to carry and use these inside the country are required. These often take several weeks to process and must be obtained before the arrival of hunting party in the country.

Pakistani Wild Boar or Eurasian Wild Boar (Sus Scrofa) Jungli Sowar or Khanzee is their local names in Urdu. 

Social Behavior: Activity is concentrated from dusk to dawn, with a primary resting period at night and a “siesta” during the early afternoon. Wild boars rest in tight groups with bodily contact. The resting place used several times before being abandoned is made of numerous troughs lined with leaves and braches. Wild boar are excellent swimmers, and have been documented swimming between offshore island up to 7 km/4miles apart. Wallowing is a favorite activity, taking place several times during each summer afternoon in muddy waterholes. In winter, this frequency drops to about once per week. After wallowing, the wild boar rubs against trees and bushes, an activity that acts as a territorial marker. Ten different vocalizations have been distinguished, and each mother can recognize her own offspring be voice. Maternal families averaging 20, but with a maximum of 100 animal, adult males solitary. Wild boars are very short tempered and can sometimes be very dangerous.

Habitat and Distribution: The Wild boar prefers area with think vegetation. They are found in reed beds as well as scrub and forest areas and are often found living in the vicinity of larger cities of Pakistan. In Pakistan the wild boar is common in the Indus riverian forest of river Indus throughout the provinces of Punjab and Sind. Increased sugar plantation has increased the wild boar population in some areas of Punjab so high that they are now consider a pest. Numbers in Sind have declined, but it is not endangered and is still found in good numbers. Wild boar are plentiful in forest plantations of Changa Manga and Piranwala. They are common in Margalla Hills and are regularly seen on the streets of Islamabad, despite government efforts to control their population. Wild boars are not found in the higher hill ranges in the north of the country. They are rare in Kohat and Peshawar. Despite government efforts to reduce Wild boar populations, by using pesticides and hunting there has been no significant effect on the population of wild boar in Pakistan, and they are increasing in many areas of Punjab.
