    Blaming hunters

    Pig-breeding boom in North Taranaki led to lamb-eating frenzy, say hunters | Stuff.co.nz

    Why can nobody take responsibility or accept that not everything can be controlled especially nature. buy a gun mate and get rid of some pigs.

    Hunters' breed and liberate pigs. Let caught sows go. And farm the pig populations.
    We are our own worst enemies at times.

    wonder how many sows are let go cos they want them to breed up and they want to catch a boar. I am not a pig hunter but have been on many pig hunts and it was common practice to let sows go.

    Not quite the same, 2pigs of breeding age in 1.5 years can make over 900, 2 litters a year, average litter 8, 50% survivability and :1:1 male female ratio. The sows from the first mating can have theirs by the time mum has her third and it grows fast. Deer only double every 3-4 years still fast enough if they eat your winter crops.

    Ditto, and he hunts wherever he likes but hates poachers!. Nice guy though (in case he's watching)

    I've never farmed pigs must be a North Island thing. I hunted and took every pig I caught... Then again were in Nelson its foresty hunting.

    Reading the article you read that the station next door had regular hunters, this would push the pigs off the property to a quieter location...ie his place! He would be better spotlighting and shooting them or if possible get some guys with night vision gear... IM bloody certain if he asked around and made it bloody clear he wanted every pig seen shot. He would get some serious hunters doing what they were asked to have private shooting like this.
