Some dogs from over the last few weeks.

Not Kiwi stuff nor big game but its offshore hence posted here. Knowing a lot of you Kiwi boys are interested in dogs and foxes over the ditch.
Stage one was staking an orphan calf killed by dogs and trapping for them.They are cunning as and don`t get old  being stupid and its good to find them wearing a bracelet after persevering with different methods.

I saw dogs a few times in morning sun from my house when they came to calf bait about a K away.They shine like gold those yella bastards.I got a lot of pics after setting cameras up on a star post.



A pair of big lean killers  on camera.



WT eagles,no traps at carcases.



Carting tucker away.



First one.





Second one old and powerful.





Third one,longer then the others but not quite as heavy as the brindle. He was knocked yesty.



He has seen a few years go by too.




Scalped for the $120 bounty.




Bladders pulled  out and the 'special cordial' for trapping is drained. I got the second dog from the first dogs piss,the third dog from the second dogs piss. The bottle now has a mix of 1st+ 2nd dogs piss,hopefully that will take their minds off the job in deciphering the mix and step into the wrist jewellry





There are more dogs about,havent caught a bitch yet and have seen them about. I have seen a few black bastards too.

There is a small red x in the pic,house on right, two dogs trapped at x



No joy on the traps today.

Btw way on that ridge top (out of pic 2 k`s away)  the local dogger  has taken 14 dogs this year.

Yep I love to see the wedgies soaring on the thermals around  here.
wazza the dogs are hammered with lead,cpu bait heads and trapping and keep on keeping on.They are a very tough and resilient breed and the link below illustrates that.
I went to a gov run wild dog workshop a year or so ago and those pro doggers know their stuff. I have a mate from there that has shown me a lot more too it than trapping foxes.

Awesome! Just moved to SE suburbs Melb from Western Vic and spent a couple nights listening to them howl from the tent while I was pretending to be a deer hunter up in The (relatively) High country. I glimpsed a couple crossing a road near Rubicon last year too. One looked like a German Shepherd and the other was a dingo looking fella.

I came a cross a few in the bush up the East Coast back in Nz, most likely pig dogs that never found the boss after a run.
Keep it up. It's good work.

SE burbs is a long way from here cobber..and I like that ha ha.
Interesting that the GS colouring is in one of my pics.It wont step into a trap and has been at the carcases(putrid) pulling them around.

I scalped a fox yesty for the miserable $10  bounty and then hung the full fox above a trap that`s been in ground  for a week. It may take its interest for a moment and step into the steel.

Yeah I've been trying to get out an about as much as possible. Not really a city fella but the work is where the work is. Trust me, I'd rather be a long way from here. I got an axe handle next to the bed just in case current events come for the d max keys.

I miss SW VIC and being out in the bush at the drop of a hat. No dogs out there but plenty of red skins. Had good access to a few nice properties but since hitting the city its a fair old effort to get back that way.
I've heard the dogs are hard to catch and very trap smart. Good luck with that GS, the brindle is a vicious looking bugger.

I know exactly why you have a black axe handle by the bed!
If you think SW is good NE is far better on the game front.

I knocked a downed cow yesty,unzipped her and ran the GR along her backline for ease of access for the crows as they will make so much noise a dog upwind will still come in.I put a camera on the tree above the cow to see whats what. The steel will be planted today or tomorrow.

Thanks for the report.
Do you or others take the skulls for trophys?.
I imagine they would be quite a talking point in the games room.
  

Its the nut behind the butt, that counts.
