Acorns frustrate boar hunting

Hunters expect that it will be very hard this year to shoot wild boars in the Veluwe region. This is because there are many acorns, chestnuts and beechnuts this year.
Until the end of the hunting season over 1,300 pigs are supposed to be killed in the Veluwe. Normally the hunters gather near feeding areas. Hungry boars will come to feed, and then they will be shot.
But now that the whole forest is littered with acorns, chestnuts and beechnuts, the pigs have no need to come to the feeding areas. They roam the forests everywhere, there is plenty to eat and the hunters will have to chase the animals.
Wildlife organization Het Edelhert thinks that the hunters now will shoot only 70 percent of the required number of animals.

A triumph for the boar
Yes, which might turn out to be good new for robins this winter:
I think wild boar help a lot of other wildlife in that way. Such a shame so many take pleasure in killing them. Both great posts – thank you again 🙂
I think that is correct. Thanks for your kind words!
By the way, I have to save your comments from the spam box. Maybe WordPress should be warned not to put your comments there 🙂
Thank you. I am about to contact them. It is happening a lot, but not on every blog. I don’t know why, as I am hardly a spammer, but it is getting very irritating Thanks so much for letting me know 🙂
Of course you are not a spammer 🙂 However, sometimes robots don’t understand things 🙂
Thank you. That was lovely to witness 🙂
