Hunting Bushpig South Africa

the elusive bushpig are hunted at night over bait
Bushpig Hunting

Bushpig are highly adapted omnivores and widespread throughout South Africa. They’re highly nocturnal and it’s rare to see them in the day. Hunting Bushpig in South Africa is a night time activity.

Trophy bushpig boars are larger than the sows and develop warts on the snout of their nose.

Bushpig are social animals and occur in family groups of 6 or more animals. They have poor eyesight but make up for this disadvantage  with good hearing and a keen sense of smell.

Bushpig hunting is a nocturnal business. They come in readily for corn, citrus or carrion fed at a bait site. Karoo Wild runs bait sites year-round and has blinds with permanent light to illuminate the area.
