Nope, PJ, we don't eat donkeys. The pigs made short work of him, though. We tried to time an ambush off the carcass, but missed the rendezvous.

Well, another highlight of our traditional bowhunting year took place today. Dave and I left town at 0400, and went out to check some swamps and creeks for pigs. It really was a bit of a bonus weekend, as anyday now the rains will arive, and scatter all the feral animals for the next five months. Anyway, Dave shot a sow with his 60# Tomahawk longbow and cedars tipped with Magnus broadheads. It was his first traditional bowkill; finally, after all that effort and practice, it paid-off for him! I'm stoked for him. Here's the picture:

We kill them because there are five million of these introduced pests in our country, and their small hooves tear the fragile topsoil up, which then erodes in wind and rain. This destroys the homes of our little native animals, like quolls and kangaroo rats, etcetera. Further, five million donkeys is a lot of competition for our native animals, which are becoming rarer and rarer, in some cases close to extinction, because of the animals our European ancestors introduced here a hundred to two-hundred years ago. We only hunt these introduced animals in Australia. In some parts where native kangaroos are abundant and are over-running farmland, farmers can apply for tags to cull these, but that is done with rifle only. Recreational hunting is only for the introduced animals. Because they are such a huge ecological problem, and because of difficulties with heat, distance and inaccessibility, we don't have laws about utilising meat, because it is, in most cases, impossible to do so, and yet the need is still there to limit their growth.

Pitbull, most waterways in northern Australia have either freshwater crocodiles or saltwater crocodiles or both. The salties are the baddies, and live in both fresh and salt water, which goes to show that you just can't trust them, seeing they call themselves salties in an attempt to trick you into thinking freshwater is safe. The one in the photo was, thankfully, a larger freshy. Freshies are pretty harmless.
