Zane E - some of the pigs caught in the
last couple of months on my uncle's property.
William - Recently as we were cleaning up
paddocks ready for seeding we were noticing large amounts of fresh
diggings in the creek lines and in the paddocks. One day as I was on
the tractor, to my disbelief I saw a mob of roughly 9 large pigs
with piglets. As the other workman was an experienced and keen pig
hunter he rushed home to get his dogs. Later that night we went out
and shot this boar. He weighed 230 pounds dressed (roughly 105kg
dressed) and the two of us could only just lift him onto the back of
the Landcruiser. The loader that the boar is hanging from is 12
tonnes with a 2.1 cubic meter bucket to give an idea of size. It
took 2 shots to the neck from a .44 lever action rifle to stop the
boar. We were very pleased with the 3 dogs and pup that managed to
bay up the pigs as they were trying to protect the piglets. After a
few unsuccessful hunting trips we thought it was not bad for my
first pig. In total we ended up with 7 pigs for the 2 outings in the
week, including one young boar that we caught during a lunchbreak!
We are now pursuing a mob of 36 pigs sited in the area.
