    Early bird brings home the bacon

    Went for a bush stalk today. Up at 345am , managed to see some fresh pig sign high up a steep ridge. Managed to track some pigs down and shot a sow in its bed

    The fact is hinds, sows, nannies all need to be culled to manage the population ...its just life.
    If I had a choice of a young boar or a sow I take the boar but im hunting for meat and in well hunted DOC blocks where a effort is required I happy take whats on offer.(plus females often taste better)
    I often find theres certain people that will bag such photos.
    1 Hunters who have amazing hunting, often private land where getting a animal isn't a problem and are selective in what they shoot, managing the population the other way, where more the better.
    2 Failed hunters who cant get anything, and happy bag others because of jealously.
    3 Animals lovers who aren't hunters, and dislike the practice and think meat goes to the supermarket without killing involved.
    End of the day I make a choice on what I shoot if I can, otherwise considering I don't have a meat safe to hunt and make a effort in the bush to track down a animal I shoot what I want, when I want.
    People want moan about something im nothing compared to the tons of animals 1080 kills, those poor females of the species leaving behind litters etc while they have a slow painfully death.
    The dozens of pig hunters that catch sows day in, day out.....image the poor piglets...
    Time people get a grip...just saying

    Completely agree with your post.
    I was just asking, as she appeared to be suckling with what appears to be a pig nest in the photo.
    Hunting over winter Is average for me I won't shoot hinds or for now velvet stags but that's just me.
    It hasn't stopped 12 yearlings filling the freezer in the last 4 months, most shot on public land.
