I received a faint glimmer of hope this afternoon (via e-mail) that I may be able to take a couple of weeks off in May or June this year.

Anyone know, and can introduce me to a property owner north of Normanton who wants pigs eradicated (up as far as Dunbar).

Please..... no armchair comments, just the introduction will do.

Regards

This may not be your cup of tea and I don't mean to turn this into a Guns and ammo thing but my bro sent this to me from his tour of Iraq, he thought it was hilarious. Maybe I can claim it as a Friday funnie thing, but the funniest thing is, it is real.

Hi Kim
Wish I could help as Iknow how hard it is to access private stations in that area.Dorunda station (between Normanton and Dunbar) used to allow pig shooting but I think it is now closed to the public--could be worth checking.Also Delta Downs might be worth checking out.Most of my pig shooting is done in N.Territory and it took a long time to get on a station up there.

you can get on to delta downs for fishing only as it is owned by the local black fellas and they have their own chiller for the pigs and dont take to kindly to people chasing [their pigs] cheers

just got back from Meandarra Qld. Saw a ute with 5 wild pig carcases hanging in the back and the locals told me this was not unusual. There is a couple of chillers boxes operating in the area so there must be a few around. I don't know any of the property owners but they must allow some shooting.
As a matter of interest a friend I used to know used to go pig hunting with some dogs and used a ball pean hammer to kill the pig.

Is wild pig OK to eat? I understood they were full of parasites etc and to make the meat safe you'd need to boil it until it was too tough to eat?

As for the hammer man... eeeemmm... I once knew some guys who used dogs and knives to hunt pigs - I got to un-know them ASAP.

dont believe everything you hear about wild pork, get a nice 3/4 grown one and cook him how you would domestic pork and you will never buy that tasteless shop stuff again.

whats wrong with hunting pigs with dogs and knives ?????
