Russian Boar Hunting in the Autumn Rut may be the most beautiful time of year to be in the northern forest. The hardwoods in the great forest turn to brilliant reds and yellows.
The cold crisp air coming down from the arctic north brings on the call of the wild. The ancient ritual of the fall breeding season begins. The boars are at their heaviest, having gorged themselves all summer long they are physically ready for the demands of the Autumn Rut.
The breeding sows have weaned their little ones and annual cycle of life calls forth the “Alpha” Beast to carry on the next generation. The Herd Boars – those who are the dominate beast in the hunting grounds will start their annual courtship of the receptive sows and the gilts (females that are of age and that have not been breed before). Danger in the dark forest.
