Time: 1 day in October
It's grey, cold and a nice soft rain caresses my face; a perfect day for hunting! It's really nice to be back out here in Bogesund on Svenska Jägareförbundet's hunting grounds. Today we are out for moose and wild boar. Permitted game is young moose and wild boar yearlings.
After a nice cup of coffee I head out to tower 32 where the show can begin.
Soon I hear huffing and puffing behind the trees. It's two really big group of wild boar moving North. I can't get a clear shot on the right animals among the trees. After a while six new animals come running in full speed straight towards me. I hold my shot this time also, but I have a giant smile on my face from the excitement out in this beautiful forest.
Oopph! ...there goes a nice little roe deer buck. Man this is a crowded spot today!
But the show is still on; a new group of wild boar is now climbing down the hill headed towards me. Perhaps this is my chance.... But the clever small pigs hide out in the bushes not leaving me a clear shot. Haha, this IS a beautiful and crazy morning!
After a short wait I now hear the dog driving something. It's a moose and her two calf way up on the hill behind me. On the radio my friends tell me the animals are heading my way so I get ready. But the animals take of in another direction. Instead I find a couple of magnificent roe deer in my binoculars.
After a warming lunch by the fire it's time for this day's second act. I climb up in tower 48 and enjoy a relaxing afternoon with good entertainment over the radio as I can follow my friends taking down a moose.
After taking care of the calf and three wild boar we are truly grateful for this day.
Thank you Bogesund for always delivering nice experiences. My game observation count this day: 50 wild boar, 4 roe deer and 3 moose.
Now it's time for me to head on home for some sleep until tomorrow's hunt out on Gålö.
