Apologies to readers and our friends at Ridgeline for the absence of updates the last few weeks - I was away electioneering in Murray, hunting in Victoria and when I did hit the desk again briefly, I came down with a flu bug that just is not quitting.
But dry your eyes, little soldiers, we have five nice entries, four of them "porcine", but that means us recreational hunters are putting a dent in the feral population for the country - and that is a thing not appreciated by gun grabbers.
The captions tell the stories and there are twp prizes for the wrap-up to this two-month comp. A knife to Glenn Hando for his continued and consistent input to this comp, culminating in this archetypal white 36-inch billy and a bumbag to Darren Andrews for his evocative outback landscape boar, artfully posed.
By the way, on my recent Victorian sojourn I carried a Ridgeline 5-pocket bumbag - I did not want to overburden a bad knee with a bigger pack - and it was terrific, fitting in ammo, water, compact camera, Personal Locator Beacon,I-Phone, muesli bars, two knives and steel, and a compression bandage. I did modify it slightly by adding a single cross-shoulder strap to keep it slipping off my flat bum and it worked a treat - really worthwhile.
Have a great time all you hunters out there and keep sending in your photos.
