Abstract: Bolu-sazakiçi sample hunting ground covered 9132 ha divided into 360 sample areas of 25 ha each. 50 of them were sampled by means of the simple random sampling method. In the sample areas “Point Counts” was applied and the population of wild boar density and numbers were determined. As a result, it was estimated that 734 wild boars inhabit the area. Of these individuals, 79 were males, 238 were females and 417 were piglets. The wild boar density in the area was determined as 8.03 individual 100 ha-1. In this paper, first of all, the density of wild boar population was determined by the point counts method, then it was tried to evaluate its management for Bolu-sazakiçi sample hunting ground.

Key words: Hunting ground, Wild boar, Point counts, Management
