  1. Don't look for a dog, look for a person hunting the way you hunt, in the country you hunt and consistently catching good pigs and try and get a pup out of them.
  2. Funny you say that, a station about 50-60km away got sold and when they did they opened the gate on the pig pen and let maybe 100 large white and landrace pigs out. That was maybe 15 years before I started hunting out there but you'd still catch plenty of saddle backs, white pigs, and pigs with big floppy ears and pushed up faces. I have no doubt there is a big chunk of domestic DNA in just about every big boar I got out that way. This one i did weigh, was 126kg live, floppy ears, pushed up face, short little legs. No doubt theres a big wedge of domestic in him, probably 40km as the crow flies from the place where the pigs were set loose 15 years before.
  3. No idea, didn't have scales, If I had to guess id say somewhere a little over 140kg+ live. Got heaps I did weigh off this place that went 110-115 live and this guy was a fair bit bigger than them. It was a weird place the pigs were either 40-50kg or 100+, never caught anything in the middle. Was a 30 meter find when we stopped to open a gate next to the trough, he never even tried to run. Probably the easiest pig i ever caught. This one, caught later the same night, was a 3km find off a deady through thick, horrible channels and made the dogs work real hard to keep him pulled up, he was about typical size for boars off that block, only two pigs we got that night
  4. Shitty photo but this would be probably my best, bailed and shot off a trough near katherine.
  5. Regardless of where you are in the world, nothing beats getting out in the forest/swamp/woods with your dogs and just let them run loose. If they are barking in a pen they will bark in the wild. Get them out as often as you can and they should learn what to do themselves.
  6. Nice work Ned, getting the RSPCA to effectively eat their words is a good win. Bet the local RSPCA lady has had her head pulled in a bit and will think a bit before mouthing off again.
  7. Done - Kinda shocked myself when I added it all up. Fuel, dog food, vet bills, vaccinations, worming, food, beer, memberships, insurance, the cost of kennels, car, quad, rego, repairs/services etc. Coulda paid my house off over the last 10 years. No wonder hunters are broke with all this "supporting the economy" we do. Pillars of the community.
  8. Lol got my Thorns mixed up.
  9. She barks enough so you can find her but doesn't bark flat out.
  10. video-1542244142.mp4 Heres a little video, the white dog is a whippet x bully/cattle
  11. I hunt with a fella who runs whippet x Bully/cattle. Very impressive little dogs, hard ass end bailers and decent noses. Fast and run on bugger all feed. You can fit a whole pack of them on a quad rack. ThorneSwine has a bunch of real nice looking whippet x's as well
