Anthony Puddicombe - massive boar
Anthony Puddicombe - massive boar

First up from Anthony Puddicombe,
I live in central QLD and i have access to a unique property which backs onto suburbia. This property is close to home so I frequent it quite a lot to help the farmer out with wild dogs that give his cattle hell. We use trail cameras to work out the dog activity and then usually stake out, that spot. For 18months we had seen a huge boar on the cameras but only at night.
To cut a long story short, one morning I was doing a sunrise stakeout on a dead cow waiting for a dog to show up, when the boar came trotting out of the mangroves. He was crossing the saltpan in a hurry and was aiming for the thick bushland that borders one side of the property. I was hoping he would pull up as I only had my 22/250 and I knew shot placement would be critical.

At 180m he propped side on for a second, & I hit him with one in the chest, a puff of dust flew off and he bolted. He went about 40m and stopped again, hit him in the same spot, he went another 10m then fell over kicking. He is the biggest feral pig I have ever seen let alone shoot, so I was pretty excited.
His teeth were pretty worn down, his ears were all mangled & his tusks were very, very thick. He went 168kg, whole. He wasn't a dog, but a pretty good consolation prize.

And now for another great Ridgeline product ...

Top-of-the-range warmth and waterproofness in the Ridgeline Highlander 3 in 1 Jacket

Ridgeline's company blurb for this product is as follows:

Ridgeline Highlander 3 in 1 Jacket
Ridgeline Highlander 3 in 1 Jacket


Ridgeline's Highlander jacket is an innovative step forward in technology. The Highlander 3 in 1 can be worn as one large jacket to protect you against the elements, then it can be split into 2 lighter weight jackets: one fleece base layer jacket and one waterproof outer shell. The Highlander will provide the solution whatever the conditions are.


I have just received this jacket and had a little play with it and I can tell you it is a substantial garment, a top-of-the-range protective jacket from Ridgeline. I am going to put it to more in-depth testing and will tell you more about its performance and my impressions in the magazine and on the web, so stay tuned.
