    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Matt do you go on the other forum, a few pig hunters down your way on there, ask you never know, offer some gas/beer even better a spot with pigs, and leave your rifle at home

    Cant edit my first post.... nasty pig that was, could be read wrong

    I used to live for it, but its such a commitment I had to let it go when my three kids came along. I had 4 dogs, 3x finder/bailers and a dogo/AM bulldogX.

    I would say that pig hunters are the most dedicated of all hunters as they never get a brake from it, 24/7 looking after, training and hunting the dogs. Then there's the cost - about $1200 per dog/per year without the vet bills...and if you do get a vet bill then that usually runs $300min to thousands of dollars each time.

    Its a great sport and I sympathise with those who have no choice i.e. farmers who's paddocks and lambs get smashed each year, for them its a necessity not an option.

    I've been known to look in on "The other forum" from time to time, but not a member on there.
    I pay my way and am happy to exchange or swap something with anyone kind enough to take me out.

    Nice looking Pig Moonhunt. I reckon that the ginger and blacks always seem to look more meaner than the all black's. Never had a pig's head mounted, but if I did it would of been ginger coloured.

    The skulls of pigs look mean, I have the jaw of my first pig only a baby and one my uncle gave me that's huge. My mate recently boiled the skull and jaw and it looks pretty cool.

    So is there only one hard core pig hunter here?

    Toby i wouldnt call myself hard core, im quite relaxed these days, have been wanting to get into other types of hunting but as Kimjon said its a commitment, i cant keep dogs locked up and just look at them, down to 2 dogs now, in the retirement faze but just cant let it go

    Have a look at 'going the wholehog' join up and have a look at some pics from the hard core guys

    Do you want a tusk to make a necklace, i have a broken jaw here with one tusk split the other is fine, pm your postal if you want it
