English term or phrase: Boar hunter
Hi
I mean someone who hunts wild boars (pigs) for a living. Different wild animals require different hunting techniques.
“He was a really a boar hunter, but now and again he would take a shot at a deer or two.”
Many thanks

Reference: Mangangaso ng baboy-ramo

Reference information:
Just wanted to point out that "manghuhuli" means catcher - not hunter. Hunter in Tagalog is "mangangaso".
