Wild Boar Hunting in Hungary : Scope Preparation

Hawke Scope & Reflex Sight Preparation

In preparation for a driven wild boar hunt we will take you through the rifle and scope set-up.

Whilst very excited about the adventure that awaits, the team are not prepared. They are used to wilderness hunts, like last years Alaskan Adventure, shooting at 300+yds at giant moose.

Wild boar hunting in Hungary is much more about scope set-up for ballistic and fast moving animals at a much shorter range. The team need to zero in their scope set-up and fine tune their setups to suit the unique and specific requirements of hunting wild boar, selecting three shooting configurations that are low mag, manoeuvrable and lightweight.

I'm pretty sure the round is bigger enough... If it can bring down a moose, it can bring down a wild boar.

Hawke Endurance WA 1-4×24 mounted on a Sauer 404 338 Win Mag.

Hawke Micro Reflex Dot (3 MOA) mounted on a Howa 1500 GRS Berserk Stock 308 (185 grain Lapua Megas)


At 54g it's probably the lightest sighting system I've ever used... I'm extremely impressed so far.
