    Virgin Pig Hunting...

    Just a quick post to say thanks to Moonhunt, Scott, Sam and Ryan and of course to their amazing dogs for letting me tag along and experience pig hunting. Obviously its a completely different experience from deer stalking , but its a massive adreniln rush when the dogs start barking and the chase begins.

    We started at 0730 by 0740 the dogs were on to something unbelievable! Unfortunely the dogs werent able to hold it and the pig escaped and did some damage to one of the dogs.

    We jumped back in the ute and drove to another spot near by , the dogs went for another run heard them bark and a pig squeal but no luck there either.

    Then back into the ute for the final spot of the day. Sam decided to go for a walk with his dogs and we followed behind cruzing with scotts dogs winding on the back of the ute, Nec minute a nice sized black and white sow casually walks in front of the ute. I nearly shit myself reach for my 308 ( shit thats right Im pig hunting I only have a knife the 308 is back home locked up !!!).

    It was so close even I could have shot it.

    The dogs jump off the ute and give chase , but unfortunely couldnt get on to it.

    Next minute Sam comes running up the road I need a KNIFE I GOT A PIG, (sam left his in the ute)we coming running with a bunch of knives , in the end he didnt need it as he had killed it with a branch he ripped off. These pig hunters are good fellas ,hard as nuts!

    Who takes on a pig even a small black one with a branch?? Sam the mad pig hunter thats who.

    Back to the ute to skin the pig and a couple of cold beers.

    All in all a great first day pig hunting.

    So even thou I didnt get a opportunity to stick one it was still an awesome experience and thanks heaps lads for letting me take the meat.

    Thanks Moonhunt I look forward to the next trip.....Hint hint

    Good morning out by the sounds of it!
    I've been wanting to get out and find out what it's all about since moving to Christchurch, but don't know anyone with dogs who pig hunts!

    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

    You are more than welcome to join. I will sort with Phil via text and he can update you as we go and I will PM you also.
    Be good to meet you both.

    That would work better for me as it is my 60th birthday sunday and I would probably get skinned alive if I baled out on the plans my family have been cooking up. How did the maranade work out for you?
