Nathan - Wolfhound Mastiff Dane dog
Woolfie - On this hunt i had taken my young
pups as well as a friends and left the two of
the three holders at home thinking there was enough dog power
already. This pig
although only about 60 - 70 kg was easily matching the only holder
while the young dogs just bailed. He was caught but in the process he cut the
old dog from under the ear and
around to the middle of his head. Very nasty!
MattS - dogs Buck
(black dog) and Star (tan)
CraigF - This boar was chased down by my Bull
Arab x Staghound dog V8 on a lucence paddock near Dubbo NSW. This
big solid boar weighed in at 86kg, with another two good size boars
I left on sundown with my dog V8 heading to a property where I would
likely find some good pigs. V8 had been going well on pigs, however
only had been catching pigs around the 40 to 50kg mark. I drove up
to a dam in the lucence paddock and noticed where a good size hog
had been wallowing in the mud. I knew that
it was only fresh because V8 was onto a sent and was going off on
the back of the Ute. I drove around the dam and I could see what I
believe to be a boar by himself about 2 to 3 hundred metres away. I
stopped the vehicle and looked through the scope of my gun and
noticed that it was a boar, it appeared to be around the 50kg mark.
I didn't really want V8 to go on anything bigger because of his age.
I drove closer to the hog and unleashed the hound. As V8 approached
the boar the boar was onto him and stood up, I looked and realised
that the pig was bigger than I thought. I
tried to call V8 off, however he continued on. The Boar took off and
headed for the scrub which was about five hundred metres away. The
boar was high tailing it out of there, however V8 ran the boar down
and lugged hold of him about 150 metres away from the scrub. I drove
as quickly as I could towards both of them and at the same time saw
V8 getting thrown around in the air, however still holding on to the
boars ear. It was about a minute later that the boar gave up and
stood there. I couldn't believe it, I couldn't believe that this big
boar had just given up. I grabbed hold of the boar and put it down.
For the next week or two V8 was treated like loyalty.
JackF - Got this Boar last year, really put up
a good fight with the dogs, gave the dogs some curry, not the
biggest boar Iíve caught but the best. Went 88kgs dressed.
JackF - Went on a family trip last year to
Tilpa and got these two boars. Sarah our daughter really enjoyed
getting in amongst the piggin action. Sent in by Jack & Kate
JackF - Rack of pigs we got late last year,
the white boar went 63kg dressed and gave the dogs a touch up, it
was a good day out with the family. Sent in by Jack Farrugia
Fitzy - These pigs were caught over a week and
a half period on a property near Dubbo NSW. Fitzy and the help of
his hound V8 including trusty old Howa 223 had caught these 25 good
size pigs. 6 of these pigs weighed over the 60kg mark with the
biggest pig weighing in at 80kg, this being a spotty sow.
MattS - My girlfriend Chloe at Winton on her
first trip. She loves the adrenalin of the hunt but refuses to touch
Mittyp - A boar me and my brother in-law got
with my dog on the 21st of Feb. [yesterday] no a big pig but by far
the crankiest pig I've caught in the last ten years he gave my dog a
bit of a touch up got him near Cobar.
