    Hi there Nihon Ken friends and fellow wild boar hunters. 2013 in NZ has been a long summer with little rain. This has meant that last years wild pig off spring has survived well over the year and the population is good providing us the hunters with lots of meat to sustain our families, dogs and friends. I hunt with two pure Dogo and one cross bread greyhound X English bull terrier .
    I would like to share some of the hunts I have had so far this year with a few photos. Enjoy and safe hunting with your beloved dogs.

    These are the kinds of pictures that look like there are awesome stories behind them.

    Hope you and your "pack" continue to stay healthy and happy! I really like your Dogos. They either look so alert and focused or so contented with -life-.

    Looks like some great country you've got down there. I don't envy you the carry out of the mountain bit.
