editor’s note

G day All, Well as the drought and fires get worse, and the year comes to an end, the unfortunate groundhog rituals are becoming more repetitive by the day. This is when you need to do a few things you love in life to keep your brain fresh, like going and chasing a pig or two. Having one of the roughest years of my life, I can honestly say that I am coming out the other end a better and stronger person now, mentally and physically. A huge thankyou to my close family and friends for the ongoing support, as I wouldn’t have been here this Christmas if it wasn’t for you all. As I type, I am here in the North-Western town of Walgett sipping a cappuccino at the local…

out in the heat

It was build-up weather in the Top End, with humid, hot conditions, above average temperatures and with rain a couple of months away, the landscape looked dry and bleak. As a result, the hardiness of the marauding, resilient weather-weary pigs was only matched by the unwavering tenacity of those who walked the semi-dry creek lines to find them. As water was harder to find than an eighteen stone feminist with a sense of humour, my mate Neil, the dogs and I continued to trudge through the hot sand of the semi dry riverbed hoping our luck would change. At a small, narrow tract of brackish water, we pulled up for a short much-needed drink break. If we thought we were doing it tough, the lack of water and oxygen had…

a boar hunters life

For me, feral pig hunting became a prominent part of my life right from when I was a little girl. I have always been lucky to be presented with plenty of opportunities when it comes to everything outdoors including, horse riding, four wheel driving, motorbikes, shooting and of course hunting pigs. Having great opportunities like I have, along with a great passion for showcasing hunting in a positive way, I have chosen to give an insight into the world of hunting through the social media page ‘Boar Hunters Life’, via Instagram and Facebook. I’ve always been a big believer in getting out there and not letting the thought of being female govern my choices or capabilities. So, I developed ‘Boar Hunters Life’ to allow my audience to gain an insight into…

dry runs

“Bindi shot off after the 60kg bugger and the feral could move”! It had been a long stint with no luck lately. Two dry runs with dogs working hard for no reward, then a third run without even a jump. It was getting to me, but we were off again and the dogs were keen when we arrived at the property. I had a chat to the cocky who filled me in with, “I haven’t seen a pig in two months”, so, I am thinking, here we go again! I cruised out just after dark and drove around for hours with the dogs not even looking like jumping, so I called it a night. I was up just before the sun to do the rounds again and nothing! Time to change it up…

days of thunder

It took a bit, but I finally managed to gather all the boys for a long weekend of hunting. The trip started with the usual procrastination and friendly banter about what was expected and who was to show us how it was done! I loaded my trusty dogs Chief, a black Labrador, as well as Duke, a Catahoula/Kelpie X, and ‘Yes’, I have been given heaps over the years for using my Black Labrador as a pig dog, but when you think about it, it has an upside because if you indulge in quite a few cold brews and enter into the stage of becoming blind, he will always be there to guide you home! Lol So after getting the crew past the local watering hole, we made the journey and…
