2 boars and a heavy sow tagged and bagged for our entry to the Weipa annual pig hunt. I shot all 3 late last night on a spot stalk under a red light off some carcasses up in Gulf of Carpenteria. Missed 2 really nice 100kg+ boars this morning on the billabong, but was winded. The sow I took at 33m as she was half inside the carcass down on her front knees, so I tried the ole Texas heart shot with the arrow passing clean through and she passed away without moving. All shots were 30m+ and quartering away with the exits out the chest. Just dropping them off to be weighed and tagged by the judges. This event is brilliant for the environment and helps sustain healthy levels of animal populations as feral pigs are a highly invasive non native species.
The 4 blade broadheads worked a treat! First time shooting a compound at night, but it's seems a good strategy up here as the days temperatures exceed 45deg C at 8am. We have some ideas on more changes to refine to the heads as we want them to be the best they can be on release. Accuracy and penetration was great and no heads sustained any damage. We are going to try a few more different steel types in the coming month to increase sharpness levels. -
Spending time with my old man Ian is best part and sharing a memorable hunt is the joy I take from the experience. Time to head home to city. Won't be long till I'm back.
Update heaviest sow so far and largest tusks so far. Happy days.
First aid kits are essential. There are a lot of great pre-made first aid kits that you can buy from the store/online and you can also make your own. Keep them stocked and updated. The type of first aid kit that you’ll need will vary greatly depending on where the first aid kit is stored, your skill level and who it is that you’re keeping a first aid kit around for.
I highly suggest that you keep at least a basic first aid kit in your vehicle, everyday carry bag, get home bag, at home and in your bug out bag. Keep certain medications in there as well such as pain relievers, allergy medications (topical & ingest), antacid and activated charcoal. Of course make sure the medications will work for adults and children. If you have pets with you, make sure they have any necessary medications and first aid supplies as well.
A tourniquet is also highly recommended. Be sure you know how to use it, along with all your other first aid supplies. I highly recommend reading first aid books, downloading first aid apps and taking first aid classes (and stop the bleed class) to keep your first aid skills sharp. .
Well, it’s official. I’m a prepper! Just finished my disaster-preparedness training through the SF fire department. Scientists estimate there is a 72% chance that a quake greater than or equal to a magnitude 6.7 will hit the Bay Area before 2043. On any given day there are about 1.2 million people moving through the city, and there are 44 fire engines total. Think about it. #getready#thebigoneiscoming#nert#prepper#prepperskills#survival
