Boars, a black panther, archery stuff and a bang stick.....what's not to like.
Life could get real interesting for hunters if the boars developed a behavioral twist and morphed their carrion eating habits into regularly hunting and killing to get their meat.

Yes....I'm kidding but in reality it is not beyond contention. It only takes one sow to do this as normal behavior and and then teach her young to do the same. Before you know it the game is afoot.........

Cheers fellas, I lived and breathed it for a while there with the dogs to keep active, they are tired now so its slowed down, the Top End is a great playground to fish and hunt that's for sure.

Starting to have distant thoughts of a new target species in a cooler climate, I don't know if its just getting through another build up with record heat waves or not but in reality the real cold weather scares me haha

I feel so sorry for that pig. To live with such relentless pain must have been terrible torture and it still had to grind each mouthful of food before swallowing. Horrible.

It reminds me of a recently discovered skeleton of a long deceased ancient young African male - Home Erectus - who lived some 1.80 million to 110,000 years ago. He died early due to having impacted wisdom teeth. The archeologists suggest that he lived in horrendous mouth pain for years and his death would have been a much welcomed relief.
