Although Russian boars do not exist in the wild in New York State, there are numerous exotic game preserves that allow for an exciting hunt. These hunts generally occur with the help of a guide, and some offer onsite taxidermy options so you can take the prize kill home and put it on your wall.
Whitetail Valley is a 400-acre resort on the New York-Pennsylvania border. Although the resort specializes in whitetail and elk, it also offers exciting wild boar hunts. Whitetail Valley provides comfortable cabins to enhance the hunting experience, as well as taxidermy and meat quartering on the premises to make it easier to take your boar home. The owners of Whitetail will help you decide what you need to take on your hunt and will help customize your experience to make it the best possible.
