Default This Little Piggy went to...

Last Monday (Oct.22) was Labour Day here in Godzone. Every year over that weekend, our local tavern sponsors a pig hunt in the local bush. Thought you guys might like to see some of the trophies brought in. The winner was 158 kgs (348 lbs).

I've cut it twice and it's still too short! But only at one end.

In woodworking there is no scrap, only firewood.

Sorry Guys, that's not me in the pic - not even the one wearing the hat
My son got the blonde one you see hanging in the first pic. He said he knew it was a real blonde as it ran towards him instead of away
FYI they're hunted with dogs and then "stuck" (not shot). The meat gets shared around families and friends. It's quite a dark, strong flavoured meat - not pale like domestic pork.

Tasty!
Wild pig tastes completely different than farm raised.

My mouth is watering just thinking about one of those hogs cooking in a pit on a long Sunday afternoon. MMMmmmmm!!!
