Watch the full video to find out the best equipment, from rifles to clothing, for wild boar hunting. 


Wild boar hunting requires specific equipment, watch as we take you through the hunting equipment used for a wild boar hunt in Germany.

The rifle of choice is the Sauer 404 XTC in .308 Winchester. The modular design allows you to take the rifle apart in a matter of moments. Everything fits perfectly into a stunning carbon carry case, which is not only discreet but also stylish and ideal for travelling. The ammunition is 150 grain Hornady interlocks. Although this is a lighter calibre for driven hunting, is it perfectly suitable for the task at hand.

When it comes to selecting a suitable driven hunt scope, a number of specifications must be considered. Things to consider are : 1x magnification, weight, day-time bright glass etched reticle, hunting reticle and turrets. Many of these points are subject to preference but Hawke offer an extensive range of high-quality sporting scopes for all scenarios. The Hawke Endurance 30 WA 1-4×24 riflescope (watch the product feature video here) has featured on many recent hunting trips. The wide-angle (WA) optical system not only offers you the best field of view sight possible, it also keeps an important 4 inch/102mm eye relief. Making it the ideal rifle scope for driven wild boar hunting in the forests of Germany.

On the end of the barrel on the Sauer 404 XTC is a muzzle break, when hunting wild boar using a .308 calibre rifle it practically useful to eliminate any muzzle flip.

This is a perfect wild boar hunting combination, especially when traveling thanks to the accessibility and removability of the set-up.
