Sunday morning hunt

We arrived at the forestry block at 7.30 barely daylight, Myself and son Hayden. By the time we got the tracking collars on my 3 dogs and Haydens 2 it was lighting up.
Off up the track with our 2 main dogs on the back, only been going less than 10 minutes the dogs were winding pretty good, so we stop and let the other dogs out off they go into the young pines and gorse out to 200 odd metres they slowly drift back except for tom my main dog, he`s heading into the next native gully, then there`s 3 barks he got a pig its not long before the rest of the dogs are there helping him out. Hayden gets down their and the sticks the 85lb boar.
Just coming up 8am a pretty good start.
It was a 20minute carry for Hayden, then we travel further up the track and Hayden spots the dogs winding again so we stop and let the dogs out and of down into the gully they are out to 250m pretty quick Hayden says looks like they are on another 1. The gps says 500m then Haydens main dog spark opens up to a bail, seconds later the other dogs hit it and I turned to Hayden and said that's a boar, he said I think so. We drove around the track to get closer before we dropped down into a steep gully to where the dogs were, Hayden was there first again and did the deed this boar went 100lb. It took Hayden a good 30 minutes to get this boar back up to the truck.
We picked up Jared my other son up at 9.30 as arranged as he had a late night after a big rugby win. He loves his hunting aswell and was keen to get out.
Hayden suggested we go and check out a spot where he got a 145lb boar about 6 months ago. We get to the spot and let the dogs out and straight away they are off down into the gully, we could see them working their way down through the young pines and going by their body language they could smell pigs. After a few minutes and 400m down into a big rugged native gully a big bail up erupted. The boys were gone I made my way down a bit more slowly as I am recovering from a knee injury from back in March. As I get closer there is still a lot of barking and some squealing so I thought this maybe a big stroppy sow. Which it was a 90lb sow. Jared did the carry out of a steep gully, good for the body after a hard game of rugby the day before.
The clock said 11.30am we all agreed that's enough for 1 day but what a great mornings hunting no dogs ripped and being out there doing it with my 2 boys is awesome.

Hayden and the old fella

Looks like you had a great hunt!  No shortage of sausage at your house for a while, from the looks of it! Smiley
