Any hunter can tell you that the trophy is only the gravy on the meat, the success is the actual hunt. Success is in the colors, the smells, the camaraderie, the shot, and the tradition. This is my first European boar, taken during a drive hunt in Germany. I had been given a an honorary sprig of fir by the hunt organizer. It is put in my hat to honor me, another, the last bite, was put into the boar's mouth right after this photo to honorthe boar's life.
