    Nice, that you use the venerable 30-30.

    What rifle, a lever action to compliment the old calibre?

    Man, that 30-30 killed a lot of Whitetails
    It's a Winchester 1894. Manufactured in 1961 when winchester were still using proper quality parts and more skilled craftsmen and less machinery. It's a fine rifle and will be around for a long time more. The 30/30 isn'y very popular in Ireland but I like it. I've kept mine with irons. It's a great woodland stalking rifle as well as a boar gun.

    I didn't think there were any wild boar in Ireland, not indigenous ones, where do you hunt?

    Evil when you consider the spin an arrow takes on.
    Agree mate, but if you are going to shoot an arrow into a large beast, best you cause maximum internal damage and get the job done quickly - which is what it's designed for. And it's a blade which I reckon most of us here can appreciate.

    - then, wouldn't it make more sense to have a 'threaded' barb pattern?

    Texas has the worst infestation, but Florida probably isn't far behind. Another type of "pest" hunting that you can do for free in Texas if you know the right people with land is hunting exotic game that has escaped from farms and hunting preserves. The guy who makes sheaths for me has things like Barbary sheep, axis deer and blackbuck running amuck in his part of north Texas. If you want the big time game preserve hunting experience but at beer budget prices, you can also go to the King Ranch and hunt their nuisance critters, which include nilgai (big ass elk sized Indian antelope that is mighty tasty), feral hog, javelina and coyote for considerably less money that the thousands of dollars that they normally charge for a trophy whitetail deer hunt.

    There has been quite the explosion of hogs - amongst other places also in Alabama and Arkansas, which were the states, I considered for pig sticking.

    There's as many hunting arrow designs that there are knives Chui, but after 5000 years of development, it's pretty well sorted.

    - don't..........please, don't.

    I've spent enough money on knives as it is..........

    Was born/brought up in Kenya - my first weapon was an African bow.

    I love 'em.............this:



    ..............always makes my spine tingle

    I love not Man the less, but Nature more

    I would love to travel half way around the world, see such glorious woodland with all the shades of green and brown, meet such friendly and experienced local people who understand the balance of nature in their part of the world, marvel at the exotic wildlife that we do not have in our own country, watch the larger animals as they forage for food or tend to their young, then kill them.

    There aren't any wild hogs in Ireland, but feral hogs are making comeback in some places.

    I'll be going to Hungary early next year for a driven hunt.

    theres plenty of pigs in australias outback too.millions of them.
    fair few in nz too. they have trouble with them in japan,both the proper wild boar called enoshishi which have the stripey suckers like the european pigs,also lots of domestics turned wild too. i suspect they have a huge problem actually ,because they have very difficult gun laws .
    we used to breed a few wild pigs and sell them.pretty amazing things.we would feed them opossums and goats we had shot,and they would gobble them up.we gave our boar a goat one day,and in the morning there was only the skull cap with horns left...it had gobbled it all up.also they breed like mad.the boar and sow had a litter of 6 ,and then within about 4-6 months the boar was mateing with its offspring.very fast turnover.
    ... to err is human.

    to aaarrrrrrr is pirate.

    heres a link to some of me knives:

    Nice work, you are a true macho man, at least by my standards. I love this way of hunting, you risk it all. Not fond of the dogs tho, but still better than bait hunting (or what its called) where you lure an animal with food and just shoot at it like you're on a gun range.

    How did the handle preform when wet? Was it slippery? And the guard? I too, have never impaled anything with a knife, so I don't know would the guard hurt my knuckles.
    Good hunting

    Thanks
    Tried to warn members with the heading and the hidden pics
    Hope it didnt give you a nasty start.
    Yeah, it is a knife made for the job and as you mention, always great when a knife is being used as intended.
    Lon was also thrilled to see it being used as a practical tool.

    Great tale thanks for posting
    Exactly! And thanks.
    It was a wild trip with thousands of miles under my belt, not much sleep and loads of driving - but worth it all!
