Acorns frustrate boar hunting

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.
