They are getting out of hand here atm, the more hunters the better. I used to hunt the pine plantations in the mountains of NSW but if you want number go to the gulf country, they reckon there are ten million odd up there.

How feasible would it be to come over and hook up with some decent folk and have a good rattle around ?

Spent a couple of years on a cattle station in central Queensland in me early 20s . Just went over backpacking originally, but after drinking all me cash in the first month ended up with a job on this

It's not about money it's about power

I don't think that's true, a dog that has caught plenty of pigs will have the scars to show for its efforts ,even if its just a bailer. One out a big boar can make short work of a dog in fact I lost(k

Plenty collies are tough enough to move stubborn beef pal 👍

They mainly use big type kelpies on the semi wild cattle here but I've never seen one grab the nose like a good cattle dog.

With so few kelpie an cattle dogs over here some of the ‘border’ I say that loosely as on most farms they just called dogs or collies up here, then the farms with beef an dairy cows obviously end up a diff style a workin from the sheep

That takes me back, I remember a neighbor with what he called pointer bulldogs 50 years ago when only a few people caught pigs with dogs here.

This was back in early 90s they come back from oz, I never got to see the dogs or even pups off them but there is a few about with them in there lines still, can’t really tell tho as most farm collies here are built like a brick shit house. I believe them tho as they well known an 3 of them went over an 2 come back an still work with cows 👍

I've been to Australia, and NZ, quite a few times, family and friends in both.

One time I just put a post up on Ozziedoggers forum asking if any one would mind taking an old Pom out hunting when I was down there.

I got loads of offers and spent three month on my next trip taking up as many of those offers as I could.

I did some stuff with the running dog lads, the Terrier men, even got an invite for a days hunting and a BBQ with the Barwon Fox Pack.

Without exception, they were all great people, who showed as much interest in how we hunt as I did in their hunting.

As long as your not a liability or a bullshitter they make you most welcome 👍

Cheers.

When I have a run out with some one for the first time, I tell them; "if I'm doing something I shouldn't be doing, tell me ! If I'm not doing something I should be doing, tell me ! "

Its only common curtesy when on an invite.

Cheers.

Wonder how many lads who crab him have actually met him or been in his company i have never met him though his name as been around for years same as my old mate D.Sleight  as far as these type of dog's go i would not have one it would be too stressful for my mental well😄being 

Yer right mate he been around dogs for many yrs  and yep he’s got his haters and guessing they never see Brighorn the pure saluki run and he bred sniper. and went and done a script in a mag saying when sniper was 9 month old it would be a machine he got slagged to bits lol then it went on to win English single handed and a foley cup lol his and they still slagged him lol his  little old 18 1/2 in whippet sonny was a  great fen runner I run against him , them dogs in the vid not my cuppa tea but at a guess I rekon prob best bull blood in them  out ther few yr back  , if the crabbers gonna judge the dogs  then do that but  they don’t know much  about breeding an dogs but one thing  we all know no one likes him me included lol 😂
