How To Tame Boars

Build A Pen

First off, build a pen. The best material would be roundpole fences so that you can jump past them. It's also advisable that you build it far away from campfires as they seem to be afraid of fire. Make sure the pen has an opening for you to enter and lure the boar through.

Lure A Boar Into the Pen

Find a boar and allow it to aggro onto you. Make sure you don't have a torch equipped because they may be afraid of fire. It's best to find boars closer to the pen because you have to allow it to chase you back to your pen. Once the boar is deep in your pen, close the pen with fences and jump out of it.

Feed the Boar

Throw food into the pen. Boars eat mushrooms and berries. Eventually, when you're a distance away, the boar will eat food. You will know it's eating when yellow hearts pop up above its head. Eventually, it will get tamed.

Benefits of Taming

Breeding Boars

If you have two boars, they can breed with each other and produce more boars. Eventually, you'll have enough boars to have a reliable source of meat and leather scraps without hunting.
