DENVER (September 7, 2021) – In 2019, Outdoor Channel introduced North American audiences to one of the world’s most popular and exciting hunting methods – driven hunting – with Wild Boar Fever presented by Aimpoint. On September 11, a new season of this most-celebrated global driven hunt series launches on Outdoor Channel and MyOutdoorTV (MOTV) – Wild Boar Fever: The Art of Boar, presented by Aimpoint.

Narrated and curated by the star of Wild Boar Fever, legendary German hunter Franz-Albrecht Oettingen-Spielberg, The Art of Boar showcases the very best scenes from 11 Wild Boar Fever seasons filmed over the past three decades.

Wild Boar Fever: The Art of Boar is the ultimate celebration of everything that has made Wild Boar Fever so popular with global audiences over three decades. Watch monster keilers being taken at full pace in France, Hungary, Croatia and Romania. See the precision marksmanship that defies the laws of physics, and of course, watch many of the most famous scenes of Franz-Albrecht doing what he does best. Franz-Albrecht also reveals to audiences for the first time what it was like starring in the most famous Wild Boar Fever scenes, which molded a generation of hunters and defined a category. Wild Boar Fever is an epic compilation of arguably the best driven hunting scenes ever filmed, all together in one Season for the first time, starting September 11.

Wild boar hunting in Europe involves more than a bolt-action rifle and steady nerves. A driven hunt pushes boar towards hunters from their daytime cover using specially-trained dogs and a team of fearless beaters. The hunters selectively shoot the boar with single shots from bolt action rifles as they run through the gun line. This style of hunting is the most popular method in Europe because – not only is it a highly-effective means of managing a growing and menacing population – it is a fast-paced, challenging and thrilling method of shooting game on the run.

“The Wild Boar Fever series was created to capture the imagination of hunters the world over,” Aimpoint President Lennart Ljungfelt said. By filming real hunters in the most exciting driven hunt scenes, audiences were offered dream scenarios showing them the very pinnacle of this style of hunting. We are proud of Aimpoint’s participation in all 11 seasons of this groundbreaking show. Two decades ago, we had no idea how far the Wild Boar Fever concept would go. It has since been instrumental in making this hunting genre the most popular in Europe and beyond. The Art of Boar promises to take Wild Boar Fever fans on a tour de force through the most spectacular footage ever created in the hunting field.”

Wild Boar Fever is one of the most popular and enduring global hunting shows of our time. The Art of Boar takes viewers on a journey through 11 seasons of the record-breaking series. This selection of highlights and greatest moments shows the most exciting action ever filmed by the Wild Boar Fever team.
