Hunter’s Diary competition: Stirring the pigs


Charlie Clark, 13, is a keen shooter and loves hunting wild pigs on his grandparent’s station in NSW. In recent weeks the farm has had high rainfall, which has stirred up the wildlife.

With Pop driving the Cruiser ute and Charlie in the passenger seat nursing his new .223 Weatherby, which he won last year in the Fiocchi Hunter’s Gallery competition, they were in for a good time.

Charlie instructed Pop to drive down the front of the farm, away from the creek to where the crop was recently stripped. The tracks were drier in that area.

As they drove through the paddocks towards a tank Charlie’s keen eye noticed a mob of about 30 pigs splitting and running in all directions through the tree lines.

With his new rifle, he was able to drop six before they lost the split mob and were unable to go any further due to the extremely wet conditions.

Charlie, very excited and with a big smile on his face, went back to the homestead and advised Gran of his trip out on the farm with Pop.

The following morning we pulled four of the larger pigs together for a photo.

Last year was a great one for Charlie’s hunting, which resulted in many pigs and foxes. However, 2022 started off even better!
