The Kalydonian Boar was an enormous boar sent by Artemis to ravage the countryside of Kalydon to punish King Oineus for neglecting her in the offering of the first fruits to the gods.  Many of the Argonauts including Peleus, Jason and even Atlanta were in the hunt.  Ironically the greatest of all Heroes Herakles took no part in the hunt.
