Hunting Tips

Very common in certain areas. Due to the excessive use of their tusks it can be difficult to find a trophy book animal. The best area to hunt warthogs is on sandy soils where their tusks are not ground away on the many rocks found in some areas. Keep watch at waterholes around midday when the Warthogs often emerge to drink and wallow.
