    Auckland Islands

    Any one see the news before , they want to rid the island of 3 thousand pigs . That would be a great place to hunt . I'd say the fishing would be pretty good too .

    Let any pig hunter in NZ go there any hours any time. That would cut cost. The cost would likely be repairing any shit the rough hunters break

    The Auckland Islands is where I reckon we should release all prisoners to. With 3000 pigs they could even survive for a wee while.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely

    Auckland Islands cover 50,000ha

    That's only 0.06 pigs per Hectare or 1 pig per 16 hectares of cold, steep, wet, wind swept isolated country.

    And no roads to drive the Hilux around on

    Could be hard hunting.

    The fishing won't be much better either ...... gotta go 12Nms off shore before you even allowed to get your line wet.

    Cheers
