Pig hunting using dogs in Nz


Recommended Posts

Its a dangerous business . This big boar was living & roaming between a forestry block & a sheep & cattle station. He was at 130kgs one of the biggest boars I caught in 45 years of hunting .

when I read about dogs facing teeth on here I smile ,some of the dogs pictured here were killed during a encounter with a boar ,at least with the tracking gear you can find them .A wild boar is a real test for any dog, week in week out, some jack it and lose any interest in answering the bark or to bring a big boar to bail. These dogs are either rehomed or given away . A dog that rips the ball bag on the chase is highly valued .Every boar is dangerous & by the body language it sends out, the dogs know, to handle with care  even so some pay the highest price .
