    Wild pigs

    Heck there are a lot of wild pigs around this year

    Had a lil one run right up to me today whilst sneaking in on Sika, cute wee thing that settled down really quick and enjoyed its ears rubbed, I told it the facts of life then let it go, hopefully a little wiser

    Anyone else seeing a lot of Pigs this year ?

    Havent noticed locally but 4 out of 5 utes have dog boxes on here, property I have just been to in Kiakoura has quite a bit of pig sign at the moment where as usually they are quite scarce.
    "Hunting and fishing" fucking over licenced firearms owners since ages ago.

    Spoke to some dickhead the other day who thought he was pretty cool that he could smash over forestry gates, fill in the local cockies culverts and generally vandalise everything in his way so he and his mate could get a quad and trailer nearly to Parks Peak via the Mak entry to release pigs. The reasoning being that there used to be pigs there so he was doing everyone a service. If I se any I'll shoot em and leave the carcass where it lies. I'm wondering if some of the local forest restrictions is encouraging this more in public areas? I don't mind seeing the odd pig but it makes the rest of us look like dicks where these unnecessary releases are made. @BRADS knows the same poor bloke who's farm this access is on and some "hunters" attitudes in the area are disgraceful.

    Seen a few pigs around the "carpark" at Kashmir road......
    Strange they think the carpark is home must give the pig hunters a real battle

    Releasing Pigs is nothing new, especially in that area and a little further north.

    I shot two in that vicinity last year.

    Haven't been out enough this year to get onto any yet but the one trip I have done we saw lots of pig sign.

    Cheers

    Yeah, I saw a sow and piglets in the Guavas forest just riding the mountain bike down to Ellis hut and back on the Yeoman not that long ago. Have not bumped into many in the forest though. Plenty in the pines next door so I guess they like that country better and will eventually push out anyway. Pig hunters in our backyard are their own worst enemy.

    Ive been seeing quite a few young pigs and suckers at various public spots around the Wellington region.
    Surprising given how many people there are with utes/dog boxes (who think killing even suckers counts as a tally)
    Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    quite cool when you have stuff like that happen to you, I guess you were lucky mum wasn't around the corner getting ready to have a crack at you. Been a bit of pig rooting around where I went on the weekend with Willie, had bumped into another forum member getting ready to head into the bush while driving along the road going to where we were to be hunting only to be informed he had seen a mob of four pigs the day before in that area.
