editor’s note

The sow played dead, so I let her go & went looking for a big boar! Hunting the crops in the summer heat! Thank God for clouds! Gday All, Well, unfortunately I’m not posing with the best boar for the month, but I’ve been making full use of scouting about in the local highlands in search of a few more properties known for their consistent population of pigs. I get asked so often; Where do you hunt? You’d catch heaps of pigs!Just because I’m a magazine editor doesn’t make me the world’s best pighunter as some hunter’s think! I struggle just like a novice and that is due to living in an area where you have to travel distances to get a hunt in. On top…

bigger mountain boars

Theres some top boars here over the ton. The one below went 157kg! The smallest of the boars of late went just over 120kg! I love going hard and through hard work, the top trophies come in the means of big pigs with good ivory. Basically, it's all about spending time in the bush, learning your surrounds and checking those areas as big pigs are usually there. Use the most important part of your body(your legs) as it provides less noise. For me, walking pays off with catching the big boars and the main thing is trusting your dogs! ■…

spoils of richmond

Another trophy caught with her best mate! Huntin the grass country! Hows this big boy below and the blonde steamroller on the left. Solid! A solid saddleback caught in the thorns! Catchin the boars of a night! Another tusky boar caught of a morning! “They call me Crocodile Dundee because I'm as keen and as mad as him.” I have always been into hunting ever since I can remember, but I first got into dogs when I was about twelve, after talking to one of my Dads friends who hunted with them. It was a week later and I had my first hunting dog. I'm originally from SE Qld, but have been up in Richmond, further north for the past…

cape york wet season

The beauty & size of The Capes waterways is awesome! Ding…Off went a Facebook message. Ding, ding! The phones bloody ringing and the next thing the wife is singing out ‘Gecko, ya want a coffee’! Meanwhile, the daughter is wanting help with her homework that she didn’t do the night before and Gecko hasn’t even had time for a morning fart! It’s just another typical Thursday morning at Gex Bars and Rails. Taking his first sip of coffee and sounding as professional as he can on the phone, Gecks books in another quad bar to build while his client discusses real life matters such as the current rainfall that has fallen on his property up in Cape York. He instead filled him in about the amount of dust…

scorcher pigs

The little hunters have big enough hearts to bail these tough NT boars! The plains turkey(Bustard) showing off his awesome wingspan! My son Matt and I knew it was going to be an absolute scorcher, but undeterred (or foolish) we loaded the Honda side-by-side onto the trailer and packed the dog-box full of keen, energetic pan lickers of all shapes and sizes. After making sure we had enough drinks, plenty of sun-cream, a hard-hitting short-range bang stick, a camera, some ammo and we headed off.No sooner had the Honda rolled off the trailer and the accelerator received a bit of stick. With the wind in our faces, it was 'bloody' hot; as we travelled the properties back boundary fence-line to a promising pig spot. After close…
