With a surface of approximately 815,000 square kilometres, Turkey is twice the size of Germany. Its population of 82 million remains sufficiently large that nature still has room to flourish.
Geographically, most of the country lies in Asia Minor or Anatolia. A small part west of Istanbul is European territory.
Turkey, and especially the Turkish Riviera, is popular with tourists. Beautiful sandy beaches, excellent weather, reasonable prices and hospitable Turks have made this country a tourist attraction. But apart from sun, sea and sand, Turkey is also very attractive for hunters.
Since the 1990s, Turkey has put itself on the map as a hunting country. Not least because of its large population of wild boar and ibex.
In the eastern parts of the country, there are also chamois, roe deer, red deer and Konya sheep. But the most important game species is definitely the wild boar. Nowhere else can you be sure to see a heavy, big keiler.
Due to religious beliefs, the people of Turkey do not eat pork. There is no need for the venison of wild boar, so they are hardly ever poached. In the meantime, keiler hunting has become a prestige business for the Turks. They have an international honour to uphold and they succeed very well in doing so.
