‘Wild Boar Fever: Spain Presented by Aimpoint’ Premieres September 3 on Outdoor Channel and September 5 on MyOutdoorTVAugust 30, 2023
DENVER (August 30, 2023) – Get ready for heart-pounding action and unparalleled marksmanship as the highly anticipated twelfth series of Wild Boar Fever, Wild Boar Fever: Spain presented by Aimpoint is set to make its debut on Outdoor Channel on Sunday, September 3 at 10am ET, with one episode of the six-part series being released weekly. The series will then be released globally on MyOutdoorTV (MOTV) with the first three episodes premiering on Tuesday, September 5, followed by the final three episodes on Tuesday, September 19.
Wild Boar Fever, a show that has captivated outdoor enthusiasts worldwide for a quarter of a century, showcases the adrenaline-filled pursuit of hunting European driven boar in the picturesque mountains of Spain's Castile-La Mancha region, where world-class riflemen from across the globe join forces to pursue running boar in challenging conditions.
Follow the show's charismatic star and skilled marksman, Franz-Albrecht Oettingen-Spielberg, as he provides a masterclass in the art of shooting running boar. Joining him are renowned industry experts, Neil Davies from US-ammunition giant, Hornady, and Carl Gustav from the leading Swedish optics manufacturer, Aimpoint. Together, they present a synergy of skill and technology that will leave audiences in awe.
Although still relatively new to U.S. audiences, European driven boar hunting is an exhilarating experience that 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.
Aimpoint, the main sponsor of this legendary series, is proud to showcase its cutting-edge optics technology in the hands of the show’s skilled hunters. As viewers embark on this unforgettable journey, they will witness the unbeatable combination of skill, precision, and Aimpoint optics at work.
Star of Wild Boar Fever, Franz-Albrecht expressed his passion for the hunting experience in Spain. He said, "I've been a big supporter of hunting in Spain. It's one of the richest traditions and one of the greatest hunting nations that we have in Europe, and I think it was so important to include that in our Wild Boar Fever history."
The invasive wild boar species – also known as feral pigs – cause billions of dollars of destruction to property, agriculture, and resources each year worldwide. The population culling of these feral swine is a practice steeped in the centuries-old tradition of driven hunting.
Viewers can gear up for an exhilarating experience as they join the skilled hunters in Wild Boar Fever: Spain. Whether a seasoned enthusiast or a newcomer to the world of outdoor entertainment, this series promises to deliver unmatched excitement and knowledge to viewers.
Don't miss the action-packed premiere, starting on Outdoor Channel on Sunday, September 3 at 10am ET. For the global audience, the first three episodes will be available on MyOutdoorTV on Tuesday, September 5, followed by the final three episodes on Tuesday, September 19.
