with the days getting shorter and it cooling down the pigs have turned to rooting up the paddocks again. we tend to kill alot of smaller stuff early winter and get the bigger pigs later on when the tucker gets a bit short. anyway got a few smaller pigs that had been turning the ground over including a good sow.Posted Image typical rooting, you guys ova in pommyland should be seeing abit of this by now with ya boar numbers building up.Posted Image a nice little gully that the pigs seem to come out on about 2pm each day, hence the rifle.Posted Image just love that veiw, finders have gone waiting for the bark, sow was caught in the swamp at the bottom.Posted Image gotcha. Posted Image battery went flat after this pic but she was stuck and is not plowing up the paddocks tonite.

Good one dude. Looks like its still warm over there though.
It was a bit cooler today, but its been pretty warm for this time of the year.

yeah still warm, had alot of rain and warm days so the grass is growing well, having the odd eastly wind helps the early starts, plenty of fish around too so plenty of kai. shot my limit on ducks and pheasants yesterday too and had no camera to record it lol. trying to get them on video clip in the swamp drained it. hows the weather like at home shane? that big white kuri doing well?

Without the hills, the countryside wouldn't be so stunning would it?.
I would get bored pretty quick with flatland hunting.
