  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Lol got my Thorns mixed up.
  5. She barks enough so you can find her but doesn't bark flat out.
  6. video-1542244142.mp4 Heres a little video, the white dog is a whippet x bully/cattle
  7. 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
  8. A committee member will get back to you as soon as possible, keep in mind we are volunteers and all have jobs and occasionally like to find some time to catch a pig.
  9. Who we are: Firstly we'd like to thank Ozziedoggers and Aushunter for providing this opportunity to put our info on here. With the current and future threats to hunting dogs theres never been a more important time for us to stick together and this is a great step in the right direction.

  10. WHY JOIN APDHA Increasing landholder concerns regarding legal liability issues, Workplace Health & Safety requirements as well as a deteriorating hunter public image (mainly due the depredations of a minority using hunting as a cover for criminal activities) prompted the formation of the Australian Pig Dogging and Hunters Association , Inc, commonly known as the APDHA , in 2005. As the name suggests, APDHA represents responsible and ethical hunters of all persuasions, but with an emphasis on those using well trained hunting dogs for feral pig control...As means of improving the likelihood of member access to hunting land was recognised as the primary objective, member benefits were principally tailored to address landholder concerns. Members exist in most areas in all states of Australia, excepting Tasmania . As the majority are recreational conservation hunters, they are more than happy to aid in feral pig control at no cost to landholders . TO DATE THE FOLLOWING BENEFITS APPLY: LIABILITY INSURANCE - APDHA members are insured for damage they (or their dogs) cause, whilst involved in legal hunting activities, to the persons or property of others. In other words the landholder is protected from financial loss , up to and including $10,000,000 , as a result of damage or injury caused by the hunting activities of the member. PERSONAL ACCIDENT INSURANCE - APDHA members are now insured against personal injury whilst hunting thus providing increased liability protection to landholders. MEMBERSHIP CARD - This card, bearing the APDHA logo, indicates the member's name, date of birth, membership number, membership expiry date as well as APDHA contact details. Verification of insurance coverage is also given. DPI NSW APPROVED HUNTING ORGANISATION - NSW Government agency approved body for competency assessment of conservation hunters. CENTRAL DOG REGISTRY - Members are encouraged to register their hunting dogs with APDHA. Whilst not replacing government or semi government registration, APDHA registry tags provide a fast, centralised method of identifying dog ownership to interested parties. CODE OF CONDUCT - members are required to abide by the APDHA Code of Conduct. This covers a broad spectrum of requirements , including care, temperament, training for species specificity of hunting dogs used, the need to obtain permission for access to land, along with other facets of ethical , humane and responsible practices . PERMISSION TO HUNT BOOKLET - SOLD SEPARATELY to members only. This document records landholder details, conditions of access being granted (including expiry date , method of hunting, etc) and hunter details in duplicate. The landholder takes the original with the duplicate remaining in the hunter 's booklet. As the booklet contains 50 duplicate copies of the form, it rapidly becomes a valuable indication to landholders and authorities as to the genuineness of the hunter.

  13. Welcome - and thanks for warning us all that youre a hairy dog man.
  14. I've used a mates Alpha and it was just as good as the astro, the only downside was after getting mud on your hands the touch screen is hard to use, The training function would be handy on a young dogs though. And shooting deer is gunna keep you, and therefore the screen a lot cleaner than sticking pigs
  15. I have an Australian model 430, have had it for a couple of years now and cant fault it. Be aware the 430 comes in Australian and American models, they both work, but technically the US model is illegal due the frequency it operates on. Personally i'd buy an Australian Model locally as warranty service etc will be much easier. The GPS wire on the collars is a bit weak, buy the most robust collar protector you can get and you will be fine.
  16. More information required, Bailer, Lugger, Hairy, Smooth, Fast or heavy set, Location? Price your willing to pay? Started? Pup?
  17. Cheers Fellas, Cactus I'll throw some pics up shortly
  18. G'day, I'm new to the forum. I run a mob of bailers (Catahoulas) in the NT.
