hunting a wild boar
i shot down a monstreous wild boar in a hunting trip turkey. huntig was great however eating a boar in Turkey is an issue. turkish people do not prefer to eat boar meat because of their religious beliefs. it is better you join a hunting tour in turkey with more foreigner guests who like eating boar.

travel for hunting to Turkey
It sense like a crazy idea only travelling for hunting however if you ever tasted the delicious hunting experience you could do anything to hunt the animal you want. You will even travel to Turkey especially to hunt Bezoar Ibex and wild boares
