Old Dog New Tricks

Recommended Posts

hi all im41 years old from the Sydney area. been hunting the great dividing range and cape York for 25years. but still learning to use these web sites I have 4 dogs going at the moment that I have been breeding for 5 generations. I really enjoy teaching dogs to ute find in pine blocks and hardwood forests. I have found over the years that the faster I drive in the pine blocks [40-50kph]  the bigger fuss your dogs make to bail off the tray. and I only drive slow [20kph] when the scent is low to the ground. rain/heavy fog/snow etc. the full moon plays a big part in catching that elusive mountain boar. the moon brings the sows on heat. so any time 2days before the full or 5 days after is when that big boar u cant catch will be covering new ground trying to find the sows and the boars scent is stronger then too. if anyone out there wants any tips on catching a tricky mountain boar id be happy to pass on any help I can.

hi stud dog the reason I think sows come on heat coming up to the full moon is I breed large white / saddleback pigs have done for 20years and that's when they come on with wild pigs have u noticed when u gut a good boar caught on a fullmoon they all ways have a trumpet full of luvin for u and boars have more fresh scars around that time from fighting over the sows that fighting wheres them out a bit making our job easier but that's just my opinion happy huntin

Interesting, I wonder if it's similar where I hunt, flat country. I try to observe things but I find the best way to catch a good boar is just put the effort in. Good info mate

One thing I've learnt is walking you learn waterholes/camps etc and for this reason I have good success with not getting a dry run lol

hi jp 138 what your saying is rite spending the time out there do in the hard yards pays off. I have not hunted around moree but get out past bourke  in the cuttaburra floodout country 2-3 times a year and the moon thing seems the same there anyway happy hunting :)
