Lot of hunters & fisherman on this forum with some top shelf cookery skills.
That's a hell of a big boar in the back of that ute!

Yeah its he is a beaut alright not sure of its origin and looking at it it may be using forced perspective to create the optical illusion that the animal was larger than its actual size.  I certainly do that with my fish to show off to my mates :)

Welcome Dan!


Nice looking pics of your hunting and fishing adventures. Those boars are huge. I live in Minnesota and also feel very blessed to have thousands of lakes and wilderness at my disposal. I love to bow hunt deer, turkey, bear and gun hunt deer, ducks ruffed grouse and more. Glad you joined our group. You will find plenty of knowledgeable and kind people ready to lend a helping hand if you need it. I see a nice snapper in one of your pics. I love eating these fish, unfortunately we have to get them at the restaurant in this neck of the woods.....Again welcome aboard....:welcome1:....RTB....:439:

Smoked eel was one of the things that got me interested in smoking.
Any chance you can walk us through the next batch.
I put a shout out a while back for any Kiwis to showcase some of their great produce ,didn't get any takers.
