Gearing up for the hunt.

The farm is extensive, over 22000 acres last count. It's probably larger that that, but regretfully Loyd the owner was away at Royal North Shore hospital caring for his lovely wife Meryl, so we couldnt verify that. Meryl had suffered an accident that had almost cost her a leg and at last report was taking her first steps on a frame. Our thoughts are with both Loyd and Meryl and we wish her a speedy recovery.

The majority of the farm is well ploughed and under crops like chickpea, wheat and soybean. There is still a lot of swampy areas and lignum scrub that remains undeveloped, and the wild pigs make the most of the more remote parts of the property.

Our intention was to bring their population levels down somewhat.
