To Hound A Hog is all about: An emotional sport
PRIDE.... When one witnesses a pup that one's reared catching his first pig.
ADRENALINE RUSH... When one leaps into battle between dogs and an angry boar to despatch it with a knife or sneaking to a bailed pig in dense scrub.
DESPAIR..... When one loses a dog or a dog is killed by a pig.
HAPpINESS AND SADNESS..... Happiness when you finally catch up with that cunning old boar that's given you the slip on a few occasions and deep down sadness for he really deserved his freedom and now he no longer remains a challenge.
All these emotions and just think they can happen in one hunt, no wonder it is such an addictive sport!.....
Brett Huddleston and his partner Gail have lived and hunted together for the last twenty four years in the Marlborough Sounds. They enjoy all outdoor activities, fishing, possuming and all aspects of hunting but as one can tell from the stories in this book, it's pig hunting that they are both addicted to.
