That little video clip probably has a lot to do with why I am going to spend a full month in far northern Australia this summer, living in a small tent and hunting big, bruiser boars with heavy wood arrows.

I blame Bob. I would have been a normal, sane elk hunter totally content to limit myself to the Rocky Mountains if not for him sending me that video clip years ago. Been a big-boar addict ever since.

(Not to mention a Hill-bow fanatic)

You have a good life my friend, I am with you as I am hoping after I meet a couple Trad gang members we are going to scout some southern Oregon hog hunting sites and hope to get a steady supply of fairly free pork.

Bob loves hog hunting above nearly everything else and it is for the excitement of it. I can hardly wait and envvy you for the trip you are making. Good luck and bring back stories!!!

Five weeks man, five weeks and I'll be climbing the steps on the first plane.

Three long days later I will finally land in Weipa.

From there, well, let's just say. . . Australia time is way slower than Mexico time, if you get my drift.

Big boars are prime on the menu, as are Marlin, barramundi, goats (the tasty ones), and whatever the winds lead me to.

Hmmmm. . . I wonder if a 75-pound Hill can put down a scrubber?

. . . Time will tell, time will tell. . .

I think there are probably only 2 or 3 animals on Earth a 75# Hill might be underbowed for.

I can hardly wait to read about your adventures.

Ric, three days to get there? Better plan on four or five. Or did you forget the last time?

The incident with the bag of broadheads in the carry on backpack. Remember?

The incident with the leatherman tool in the carry on backpack. Remember?

The incident at customs with exotic wood. Remember?

All the wasted time we spent in airports came about because of Ric getting strip searched. He evidently fits the profile of some terrorist. Security zero's in on him like a dingo on a wallaby.

So don't wait until you retire to go hunting and fishing. Don't even wait for your annual vacation. Go at every opportunity. Things that appear urgent at the moment may, in the long run, turn out to be far less so.

Here's the mileage chart for where Rik is going. In kilometers, of course.

It's shaped almost like Idaho.

Mark,

No worries this time Mate. I've changed my middle name to Muhammed, that way they will know for sure not to "profile" me.

You forgot to mention when they confiscated my ultralight collapsible fishing pole. Apparently it was a highly dangerous weapon capable of incredible mass destruction.

Ah. . . this is all bringing back some good memories. I wonder if they still brew cold, frosty XXXX down there. . .

Hey Terry,
Outdoor Life Aug 2010 issue, just received it, has an article about whitetail attacks including a man who was killed in 07 in Georgia.

They can be dangerous. This guy got knocked down and cut from his neck clear to the top of his scalp with one tusk swipe!

Yeah, they shot the hog. It was a dog hunting thing, and this guy was the least experienced one in the group. He thought he could hold down a 300# boar by himself.
