how about a Hall of Fame for this section as well? would be choice to see some cool pics from the hunters as well.....
 
EDIT:Good idea Kezza!
I line with other HOF's I will make it a sticky thread too.
I will keep this one tidy aswell so after posts with questions and congratulations have been up for a few days and people have moved on,I will hide post's so we have a library of cool pics...and not pages of banter.
 
Cheers falco

A few boil-ups ago but thought I'd share them anyhoo....


my first decent boar - Tauhara Forest circa 1983


Any guesses who got to share the tray with the hounds?...small comfort in the middle of a Taupo winter mind you.



My ol' man with a nice one...



Our hunting mate with a real nice one out of the pines - small set of hooks thou!



A BIG nasty one out of Kaiangaroa circa 1985



The mount on the left is the head of the pig on the back of the truck above and the one on the right is the one that my ol' man is standing next to above.

great days great days!!

Nice Pheasants! Any chance you could spec the 'AREA' (not location) you got them? I have seen a dark one like that but apparently you can also get green ones??? So want one.


Posted By: Bushpig
Date Posted: 10 May 2010 at 3:49pm
I suspect the dark one is a Melanistic. There are a few in the Kaitaia area getting raised and released.
 
Keen to hunt up there one weekend after ducks close if you want. i have a couple of contacts that can put us on a couple of good areas and get us land access

Carbine - I believe that you have had this discussion before!! Someones son or daughter who happens to look at this site doesn't want to see their dearly beloved 'Cuddles' 2nd cousin (spitting image in fact) hung up. One day if you are ever allowed to breed you might understand this!!!
I don't think anyone has an issue with destroying pests (I've shot the odd wild one myself), but there really is no need to risk upsetting people by repeating something that caused enough upset the first time. In other words, don't be a 'richardhead' or at least find somewhere else to put the richard posts if you can't control yourself!

Jaapie, once removing the lower jaw its a simple matter of boiling the jaw to cook the meat. Once done you then remove the cook flesh from the bone and put out to dry, I have soaked mine in bleach which helps whiten and gives a clean smell,

There's plenty on the Landcorp block on the Karikari Peninsular Bushie. Wink and the manager wants them moved on. It's a bit far for me to go but you might be a bit closer to the action and your young dog would be helpful in the lakeThumbs Up.

What do you do when full of the bldy flu?
Decided to go for a walk up the back valley and try and sweat it out and just maby see a pig or 2.
Ten mins up the creek I heard a bit of a crash in the gorse and could see a bit of black moving through it, Nice pig im thinking.
 
Na it was one of the wild cattle that are in the area.
Got a clean shot and then spent rest of the day carrying meat back to the car.
 
Sure sweated a lot and the meat was to die for.

Back in 1978On the top end of Kawau Is , long before it became a reserve, the place was just crawling with Damas ,but they were still hard to hunt with a bow , even watched my mate stalk to within 10m of one ,he still beat the arrow,this was my first big game award for NZBHS



This was a goat I plugged in 1978 at Marakopa (excuse spelling) with Bear Alaskan , won the Les Hart shield with it that year at NZBHS Tournament , was #4 in record book but now its about 25 , Douglas score 110 1/8 , 36 5/8in



Shot with Bear Alaskan again,Moehau , coromandel, I had a private farm to hunt on there, was only about 50/60lb , won the Ossie Secombe shield for best pig that year at NZBHS Tourney 1979/80 I think it was
