The bushpig is a member of the pig family that is endemic to forests, woodland, riverine vegetation and reed-beds in East and Southern Africa. Bushpigs are mainly nocturnal but once comfortable enough they will also feed in the day time, therefore the best way of hunting them is over bait. Adult bushpigs can weigh as much as 120kg and stand up to 100cm to the shoulder.
Bushpigs are omnivores and will eat mostly anything they can find such as plant roots, fruits, insect larvae and meat from dead animals.

Bushpigs are baited all year round with a peak time from April to November.
Electronic feeder are the mainly used to distribute corn at specific times just after sunset. Every so often we will add a special treat to the diet.

All our bait stations are permanently equipped with solar lights that work on a day/night switch, making it so much easier and better to get a clean shot opportunity.
These Bushpigs are very comfortable with the lights and will stay at the bait station all night long.

I like how you can add on to another hunt, a great deal I’ve been on one where dogs were used and you had better be in super shape for that one lol.
@ve7poi , I am very familiar with Bushpig hunting with dogs, it can be fun and rewarding but hunting them over bait is much more targeted. With dogs you have to take what you get, over bait you have the option between several different boars at different baits.
And as you say "super shape" you have to be.

I did this hunt last October with Bossie from one of these locations. What a rush! I never get anxious or overly excited. But the bush pig had my heart racing. What a great hunt in a great location.

I'm very interested. I'll already be in Africa in early May next year. Wouldn't mind tacking this on to my trip with a Buff cow, warthog, ostrich, brown hyena, and I could be tempted into a lion pretty easy.

I shot my bushing with Bossie. It was a fantastic hunt and the solar lights worked great.

Bushpigs are another interesting night hunt. I would have a hard time not shooting one of those porcupines though. They are on my want list.
