A massive 168.9kg (148.3kg dressed) boar has taken out the annual Pig and Pussy Hunt hosted by Coolalinga Guns and Ammo. 

The even organisers would like to see the event become the biggest in Australia next year by offering a huge pool of prizes. The event saw keen pig hunters from all over Australia.

NT News reported Jack Noble and his mates from Victoria couldn’t believe their luck when their little kelpie Murphy came across a gigantic 168.9kg boar on Friday.

The monstrous beast won the hunters first prize in the 2017 Pig and Pussy Hunt at the weigh in at the Noonamah Tavern on Saturday.

Jack said he and his mates Jack Gruszkowski, Neil Quanchi and Mick Gruszkowski were stoked to take home $12,000 in cash and prizes for their 148.3kg dressed boar.

“We’re still on a high from the weekend,” he said.

Not only did Mr Noble and his friends take out the biggest boar in the senior division, but young Jack Gruszkowski won the junior title with his 112kg dressed boar.

“It’s been great celebrating with a few drinks and reminiscing about our weekend together,” Mr Noble said.

The 2017 Pig and Pussy Hunt attracted about 500 people from all corners of the country with hopes of winning part of $30,000 in cash and prizes.
