    Quick moonhunt

    Took the rifle out last night/evening to have a crack at a pig, amazing how you can see enough with the binos in the moonlight, heard a fence twang or similar but didnt register, quick game of chess on the phone and thoughts were miles away, back to the binos and whats this black shape sifting though the paddock...Hmmm, what the hell im i doing, im going home to get the dogs

    Thought my luck it would be well gone, also had the boys keen and dragged them along for the ride

    Any how pig was still in paddock, it also had a small pig with it and just as i grabbed a back leg my little bitch grabbed the small pig and my other dog let my pig go, well i couldnt flip it, we did circles around the paddock, i naturaly thought the boys would help me out then after a minute had to yell for help, i guess they thought it was all part of the entertanment

    Moonhunt wanted a dance Toby. Is that so hard to understand?
    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 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    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

    Nice one moonhunt :thumbup:

    Iv only been pig hunting with dogs a few times really but one time there was about 6 dogs holding and i couldn't tip it. I was hanging on to the hind legs trying to tip and trying to boot some dogs off with one leg. Bit of a laugh.
