I might have to buy some Kevlar pants for our trip to Oz next year. That would put a damper on a hunting trip.

You"ll be right mate, its not the wound you have to worry about it's the possibility of infection, some years back a young fella had to have a leg amputated due to the infection from an attack by a pig.

Piggy's right..it is the infection that will do you in . Chewing on carrion gives a good chance to carry lots of great lil' friends around. And if you are chasing them up far north Australia its about as geographically isolated as you can get . But its all about the adventure eh !
Clay ... they don't attack that much, but when they do you just have to be careful.I figure if you can guys can live with bears that'll climb a tree , you should be ok with a measly 200kg tusker! I'm always more concerned about sows with little ones than I am about solitary boars .

I am looking forward to the chance to stalk and stick a sharp arrow in a few of them. Bears can be dangerous. I chase them every year on the ground so hog should be a fun challenge.

Mate you will be OK considering the number of people who hunt pigs compared to the number of people who actually get nailed (injured) buy one in percentage terms would be quite low.
Any animal can be dangerous given the right circumstances.

Hope you have a great time while in OZ.
Where are you going?

In the last few years two of my hunting mates have at least twice being bowled over by NT Boars (Northern Australia). Fortunately only their pride that took some bashing. I have myself came very closed to being attacked by a rather large sow that was guarding her babies.I had to shoot it under 10 yards when it came charging straight at me.

They may not be considered dangerous but a 300 pounder came close to eating my lunch and no he wasn't injured.

Nasty buggers the lot of em. I've never been opened by one but don't have enough digits to count the close calls.

enjoyed the stories. I live in Thailand and have read stories from "tracks of the intruder" by Gordon Young who hunting here in the 1950s. He talked about coming across a tribal man that was torn to shreds by one. Gordon was also "hunted" by a boar that he was tracking and almost got it by him. One thing he said was that they were very smart. I think the true wild boars that were here more commonly before were a different animal then the ones in the woods now (I confirmed they were feral from the eye tooth present behind the tusk of a couple of skulls I have seen).

I know more people who have been attacked by whitetail bucks in the wild than have been attacked by wild pigs in the wild.

I know a half dozen folks with scars from hogs.....but not one person attacked by a deer.

I can't figure out how there's even an argument over deer vs hogs.
