Hunting wild boar in Rogojembangan.

Hunting wild boar in Rogojembangan. 

Hunting wild boar on the slopes Rogojembangan has become a tradition for generations of local residents. Hunting traditionally, using a spear, and aided by some hunting dogs. Hunting wild boar at this location, shall not use firearms, or rifles. In the hunt can not be arbitrary time, this tradition has its own rules of hunting schedule, ie every Tuesday Kliwon (day Javanese people). So only one month in the hunt once and 12 times a year. Though females usually bear boar once a year. Pregnant period lasts for 101-130 days, an average of 115 days, with the number of children 2-12 head / birth. Her children breastfed for 4-5 months. At the end of lactation, a female wild boar was able to remarry.
Hunting is just a pest, because pigs are considered pests by locals that the majority work as farmers. there is no intent to eliminate this species, so in my opinion, hunting traditionally wiser than mass slaughter.

Breeding boars began at the age of 6-8 years. In nature, on average, able to survive 10-12 years, but nothing can last up to 20 years.

Activity of wild boar in search of food is usually performed in the afternoon and early morning, ie at 16:00 to 19:00 and 04:00 to 06:00. At 9:00 to 11:00 usually wallow in the mud. Daily roaming boar 5-16 km and usually passes through a fixed path.
Senses are extremely sensitive and very keen to recognize the human scent and a good swimmer.

Locals only controls a small portion of forest growth in pigs, because if too many boars in this area, it will destroy their farmland.
