HUGE SUCCESS Queensland Big Boar Hunting Championships 2015 Gympie.

The Queensland Big Boar Hunting Championships 2015

Getting ready for Prizes

Getting ready for Prizes

The Queensland Big Boar Hunting Championships 2015 was a huge success. So successful, that it makes it very difficult to apportion the precedence of benefits and accolades. Overall, the beneficiaries were the hunters and shooters of Queensland, the food producers of Queensland, (from the loss of 660 feral pigs), and the firearm and hunting accessories industry which would benefit from the flow on of the interest in hunting. $30,000. Worth of prizes and cash were raised with nearly $10,000 of cash donated to the ‘Wandering Warriors’ SAS (Queensland) . $40,000 plus was raised with very few costs due to the fantastic efforts of the volunteers.

For too many years we have been the under -dogs, we have been pushed into the darkness, we need to struggled for recognition in the hearts and minds of real Australians. These ‘win’ ‘win’ activities proving how we constantly benefit Australia’s future are the way forward.

The media support was enormous, and their surveys showed a 97% support for the efforts and even suggested that the event should be held four times a year to eradicate the doomsday menace.

This is part of the message I delivered at the Prize Giving.

“The issues are.

We have an unalienable, or God Given Right to hunt on crown, or public land. In Queensland that Right is denied to us,

We have an unalienable, or God Given Right to defend our lives, our homes, our crops, our produce, our property from all encroachers both Animal and human. In Queensland that Right is denied to us.

95% of there brothers and sisters are protected in our National Parks and Public Land, but they eat our Farmers out of house and home.

95% of their brothers and sisters are protected in our National Parks and Public Land, but they eat our Farmers out of house and home.

We are again facing encroachments on our inalienable, or God Given Right to own property, our lever action shotguns. Leaving us further down the disarming track.

95 % of these Feral Pigs live in our public land. (Where we are not allowed to hunt)

Last year the Government told us that we had 24 million in Australia with at least a 2.1 ratio increase that over doubles their population every year, this year we have 50 million plus, even though we can deduct the 660 or so that we processed to day. Next year 100 million, the government has no real answer it cannot afford to pay for their destruction and as usual is in effective and in efficient in handling this critical problem for Australia. Slowly but surely we are bringing attention to this Doomsday problem.”

Next year they will have 100 million cousins eating Australia's environment. They will win access for hunters for us.

Audie Moldre on Anzac Day,
CEO Wandering Warriors SAS Queensland Association.

Here is a message of support from Audie Moldre the CEO of the Wandering Warriors, SAS Queensland.

Hi Ron

The ‘speech’ I made at the QLD Big Boar Competition presentations wasn’t scripted, it was off the cuff. Here’s what I would say in relation to Wandering Warriors and your event:

Wandering Warriors is very grateful to the Queensland Big Boar Competition and particularly to Ron Owen, who is the driving force behind the generous donation of all the shooters. We support the competition that supports us because the participants are exercising their right to engage in this sport, and are doing a community service at the same time in trying to keep down the numbers of these destructive feral pests. That’s a win-win as far as we’re concerned.

Wandering Warriors continues to assist Australian Defence Force veterans and their families. We have distributed nearly $200,000 since the inception of our organisation in 2013. As veterans make that difficult transition out of the military, they need community backing on top of the support provided by the ADF and the Department of Veterans Affairs. Comprehensive solutions to the needs of the wounded, the injured and the ill require more than rehabilitation. Rehabilitation has to be coupled with education and employment opportunities to ensure the solutions are lasting ones. Wandering Warriors has recently partnered with the University of Queensland Business School to provide degree courses to selected veterans. We also have some announcements that we hope to make soon about a couple of significant Australian companies are going to provide education and work opportunities for veterans.

We’re proud of our record so far, as a group of volunteers and veterans ourselves. We’re also proud to be associated with an event such as the Queensland Big Boar Competition. Ron Owen and his competitors have been with us almost from the birth of Wandering Warriors, and we look forward to growing bigger and better together.

Kind regards

Audie

Well thank you, ALL, none of this not one iota of it would happen, if it was not for human generosity, well except for , paying Bunnings for tags and zip ties, the super market for serviettes and tomato sauce and the hire company to clean out the mobile toilet, everything else, has been kindly donated, all the work by all these willing volunteers has generously donated, the fantastic performers have open heartedly donated their services and even the Media, the local paper have been charitable and given us a very fair hearing on these important issues.

With the donations of the sponsors the hunters are encouraged to participate and receive some reward for their annual and ongoing service to this country, and 100 % of the proceeds goes to another separate, but just as worthy cause the ‘Wandering Warrior”s in our past and In todays troubled world Australia faces other external Foe’s and we have to “Salute their sacrifice” We have to pay back and salute that sacrifice, just a tiny tinsie little back to help our Veterans. Even if we had a billion dollars it would never compensate for a moment, or the lack of that moment, to the bereaved or those suffering. Thank you ALL for nominating, buying shirts, raffle tickets, food and other goods thank you for your efforts in raising this amount of money. (Thats where the $10,000 that this event raised for the Wandering Warriors comes from)

Re. Wanted Sponsors For The
Queensland Big Boar Hunting Championships GYMPIE 2015.
Dear Sirs.

Most Australians have a connection with rural production, or are involved with industries that are either dependent, or associated with rural Australia. Many city Australians are related to, or are second generation rural Australians.
Due to these ties to the ‘land’ the benefits and problems of the land are of paramount importance to them and Australians should be concerned that last year (2014) government sources put the Australian Feral Pig population at approx 25 million.

We Have A Plague of Pigs.
Feral pigs have a reproductive rate that is closer to rabbits than other large herbivores Females can breed from seven months of age and have one, or two litters per year of four to six piglets, this easily doubles their population every succeeding year. So 50 million in 2015. The damage they cause to Australia economy is huge and realistically any statistical calculations could not cover the subject thoroughly. Combine that with the damage they do to our Australian environment/wildlife etc, the Greens should pay a bounty to Feral Pig Hunters. https://www.ehp.qld.gov.au/wildlife/threats/pig.html

Foot & Mouth Could Starve Australia.
The disease risk posed by feral pigs is regarded by some as a “ticking time bomb” for Australia if a serious exotic disease gains access to the wide-ranging pig population.
The threat of an exotic disease outbreak such as Foot and Mouth Disease, to just name one, would prove terminal to much of Australia agricultural products. It is extremely important for thinking Australians to encourage the demise of Feral Pigs.

Two Great Causes.
The Queensland Big Boar Hunting Championships 2015 has two main objectives;
One, to encourage the removal of as many feral pigs as possible from our environment,
Two, to raise as much money as possible for the ‘Wandering Warriors’ (SAS Queensland Association) to aid veterans and their families.
(Wandering Warrior is a charity initiative of the Queensland Branch of the Australian SAS Association. Its members are veterans of Australia’s military conflicts over the past 50 years. They volunteer their time, energy and resources to conduct events which raise funds for veteran and family focussed charities. Wandering Warriors has no paid positions. With the support of corporate Australia and the Australian community, the Wandering Warriors aim to raise badly needed funds for Wounded Veterans, and their families.)

The Third Objective.
There is a third objective, that is to improve communications between hunters, political leaders, media, business people and the community in general, improving the image and opening more public and private land to hunters.
If current pledges continue to be contributed, the $30,000 dollar value of prizes will be easily surpassed. This will attract at least 500 to 600 plus nominations from hunters statewide. All of them would like to see your name in the sponsors list for these two very worthy causes that are combined in this same event.
Please accept our invitation to attend and award your prizes at the culmination, weigh in, presentation on the 12th July 2015. The Queensland Big Boar Hunting Championships 2015 is a three-day hunt, with Bow, Firearm or Dogs for feral pigs, anywhere in our State .
The list of donated Prizes from Sponsors will be soon viewable on http://www.foaa.com.au/queensland-big-boar-hunting-championships/sponsors-please-support-these-worthy-sponsors/
At the 2014 Queensland Big Boar Hunting Championships, last October, 342 Competitors disposed of 329 Feral pigs, (producing a body or a snout) and raised a total of $27,000 for charitable causes. Approximately, 450 people were present during the weigh- in 350 people stayed to watch the $20,000 prize giving. Prizes were awarded for heaviest Boar, Sow, Most number of pigs, Largest Tusk, Largest Pigs Ear, Longest Pig Tail.
We had two dedicated photographers for the Weigh In, who kindly donated their photos and skills free of charge Jason Harelle and Jim Sweeny. Jim Sweeny made a nice comment on Facebook.
What A Great Day , Ossie Family’s Enjoyed, The Best Event I Have Ever Been To, The First Time I Saw Wild Pigs, They Reminded Me Of Oversized Rats With Their Black Hair , Certainly Not The Domestic Breed, The Hunters Were Good Young Knock About Aussies Risking Their Lives To Rid The Land Of Vermin, I Am Very Impressed With The Hunters Who Are Australia’s ‘Salt Of The Earth’, I Will Be At Next Year Event, As This Is Too Good To Miss”.

Advertising
On Sunday the 12th July 2015 the Long Lunch will again feature a pig on a spit. Last year we received , four half page sponsorship promotion giving positive response from the Gympie Times newspaper. We received sponsorship/promotion by the Yaffa Publications magazines ‘Sporting Shooter’ and ‘Bacon Busters’, and in 2015 they have been invited to attend on the day. Also we received advertising from ‘Wild Boar Australia’ and ‘Guns and Game’ magazine We will be seeking sponsorship/promotion from National TV and they and local media will  be invited to attend on the Sunday 12th weigh-in day. Last year, all the positive publicity was marvellous for the hunting sports in Australia. The facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/QueenslandBigBoarHuntingChampionshipsGympie
has had thousands of visitors, the 4 minute Video has in its different location had over 5000 viewing’s.
If you would like to contribute as a sponsor, or help in anyway please phone, or email Ron on the numbers above.

Newspaper and Radio Interviews.
Here are just some of the articles from our local Newspaper and ABC radio we also made Channel7 in Brisbane and other radio interviews were broadcasted. Gympie Times said, that when the issue was put onto its website it had the most comments on any subject and 97 % were in favour of “The Queensland Big Boar Hunting Championships” even the Noosa Greens candidate supported recreational hunting as the most humane method of disposing of these Feral pests.

Farmers, Boilermakers, Shopkeepers, Dentists, Lawyers, people from varied walks of life  got together to achieve something that was an all round good thing for all concerned, except the feral pigs.
Beneficiaries, were the competitors who received great prizes, over $20,000. worth, agriculture land holders who had 329 pigs removed from the breeding cycle, and the Wandering Warriors who are a 100 % voluntary organisation that raises money for Veterans and their families. Over $27000 was raised from all aspects of the event and distributed to the beneficiaries. No grants, no assistance from government, pure voluntary effort pays off.

RSPCA Lost There Way and Associate themselves with the Cretins that Stole our Banner. 
I believe that, The Queensland Big Boar Hunting Competition 2014, delivered a massive increase in public standing within the normal community. Yes, I know we could not convert the idiots, who would never allow reality, facts and figures to affect their single minded dogma, but at last pig hunters are being recognised as volunteers, effectively carrying out a public service.
Contrary to the statements of the RSPCA CEO Mr  Mark Townend,”He says the competition is a blood sport that attracts beer-swilling ‘yobbos’, and goes as far as to support a ban on amateur hunting”.

These people pictured below are Not “Beer Swilling Red Neck Hicks”, one of them has not had an alcoholic drink since 1974, some of these people are managing directors of companies, dentists, journalist and at least one doctor. Of course, as the event was to raise money for the ‘Wandering Warriors’ Veterans of Australia’s Armed Forces namely the SAS Association (Queensland)  some of them we should properly address them as ‘Hero’s’.

They will be telling their Grand kids about this event, the winners will never forget the $20,000 worth of prizes. Look at all those Big Boar Shirts.

Farmers, Boilermakers, Shopkeepers,  all got together to achieve something that was an all round good thing for all concerned, except the feral pigs.
Beneficiaries, were the competitors who received great prizes, over $20,000. worth, agriculture land holders who had 329 pigs removed from the breeding cycle, and the Wandering Warriors who are a 100 % voluntary organisation that raises money for Veterans and their families. Over $27000 was raised from all aspects of the event and distributed to the beneficiaries.  No grants, no assistance from government, pure voluntary effort pays off.

In fact, the State Government with the assistance of our Local Government opposed our fund raising by 1080 baiting all the surrounding public land and with mis information meetings  encouraged local land owners to 10 bait their own property. This connivance was planned to put off pig  dog hunting in the local  publicly owned forests and plantations which we could have told them was a waste of money and effort anyway as this 3 day hunt had to be on land where the competitors had written permission. The other part of their plan was to poison as many pigs as possible to reduce the numbers that our recreational hunters could hand over for the scrap meat market, denying 10 cents a kilogram from the Wandering Warriors.

Petty, but it did not work,  329 pigs bit the dust and our only real enemy was the heat, during the last few days the local weather conditions built up in the 40 degree bracket. So many of the pigs that were killed went off before they could get to our refrigerated 20 foot container kindly supplied by Ross Hopper Container Hire.

First I would like to thank our great team who helped to put this event, together ‘the happy ‘few’ who have donated their time effort and money, like Neil Adams of Regional Diesel, GJ Pigs who donated the spit and pig and cooked it as well and the brilliant Weigh in team.

The hardest working Trojans, the Weigh In Team, keeping up with the Longest Tail.

The hardest working Trojans, the Weigh In Team, keeping up with the Longest Tail.

Second I would like to thank the Sponsors. Without the very generous support of the Sponsors for the prizes none of this would be possible, so please support all those on the Sponsor list. I would like to give a special thanks to the staff at Owen Guns who have all fielded a million enquiries over the last few months and the Owen Guns Trustee who allowed it all to happen at this site, and invested a few thousand in seed money for expenses, to get it going.

Prizes have already been promised for next year, so if anyone wants to do this again next year please contact me immediately after this as we want to hold it earlier in the colder months, it takes nearly a year to organise, so if its going to happen we start now.

Third, I would like to thank our Veterans, Australia’s finest, are those ‘few’ people who volunteer to put their lives, their flesh and blood in danger to prevent Enemies, murdering every man women and Child in Australia. Which would happen if they could get away with it. War is a atrocious waste of human life, it breeds misery, human words can never fully describe the horrors it inflicts on people, but when an ideology gets greedy and wants world domination, all peace loving lives are fully expendable to that cause. So our Australian young Warriors have to be sent anywhere in the world to kill our enemies, before they can get here to Australia, to kill all of us. As we are ‘few’, and they are many we have to be better at killing then they are. We have to be the most efficient users of technology we must use it to hunt the most dangerous game, Man.

As our Warriors have taken the oath, put their life on the line, for all of us, our Veterans deserve the most respect and assistance that we the beneficiaries can give them. These Veterans, are the cause that we here, serve today.

Our Country has many other enemies, Fire, Flood, Plague and 30 million Feral Pigs are a Plague, I know we all would like some more, but at the near 2 to 1 minimal reproduction rate there could be 50 million next year and so on until they eat everything, and then Australians will starve. If Feral Pigs, host a disease like Foot and Mouth, then Australia final end will arrive a lot quicker, as without a new technical break through, we could never eliminate all the pigs, or the disease.

More Piggies queuing to be weighed.

More Piggies queuing to be weighed.

I am personal fan of Pig Hunters, I believe you are ‘the tip of the spear’ the best young people ready to achieve great things for your country.

We all need to encourage an Army of pig hunters, who at times take risks. Pig hunting can be dangerous, using firearms, knives and bows is a dangerous occupation without introducing a Wild animal to the equation. So like our volunteer Firemen, you too, are all doing an exciting, truly public service for all Australians. Owen Guns and all the other many generous sponsors have fully appreciated both of these good causes, our Veterans and Australia’s agricultural survival. With these donations they have encourage both of these above crusades, breaking into main steam media which you may have noticed, is generally now supporting, our causes.

We are at a time in world events, ‘Which will try mens souls”. These World Events will get closer to our homes, and sadly our youthful pig hunters, will very quickly be standing in the same sort of Army Boots that our Veterans used to wear.

To digress, I can recall being issued a pair of size 16, Army Boots in 1963 that had 1943 stamped on there leather soles, they were 20 years old when I wore them. I knew that I walked in the footsteps of better men than me. Those that had fought in WW Two.

Hunters are experienced in Strategy, Small unit Tactics, Danger, Excitement, Camouflage, Trigger Control and can slip the knife into those vital spots.

I sincerely hope that young Australian Pig Hunters services are never called, for war service, but if they are, your skills and training for this sport, will give you personally many great advantages, which you will in turn teach to your mates, you will walk well in the footsteps of our Veterans and our Country will then be in your debt, you then, will be also the veterans, that we salute.”

CEO of Wandering Warriors responded……………..

329  Pigs Removed from Our Landscape.

Tiny Markus Makalovitch Head
Re. Queensland Big Boar Hunting Championships GYMPIE 2014.

Dear Sir.

Most of your retail customers are concerned with the ‘land’, some are primary producers, or rural business people, or friends or relations of rural people. Due to these ties to the ‘land’ the benefits and problems of the land are of paramount importance to them. Even Australia target shooters are people who have connections rural Australia almost to a man they are primarily conservative and nationalistic. All of them would like to see your business name in the sponsors list for these two very worthy causes that are combined in the same event. The hunt has two main objectives, one to encourage the removal of as many feral pigs as possible, (which damage local industries and the environment) and as all proceeds go to the ‘Wandering Warriors’ veterans and their families, (organised by the SAS Queensland Association) to ensure that is the highest possible amount.

There is a third objective, that is to ameliorate communications between hunters, political leaders, media, business people and the community in general, improving the image and opening more public and private land to hunters.

Government sources place the number of Feral Pigs in Australia at 25 million. Most of these are in Queensland. Feral Pigs cost primary producers millions of dollars in damage to property and crops, control attempts by governments cost the tax payer’s millions yet feral pig numbers are still expanding. We have an opportunity to fill the need of feral pig reduction and show that recreational hunters can make a positive difference.

Please accept our invitation to attend and award your prizes at the culmination, weigh in, presentation on the 26th October 2014. The Queensland Big Boar Hunting Championships 2014 is a three-day hunt, with Bow, Firearm or Dogs for feral pigs, anywhere in our State .

If current pledges are continued to be contributed, the $20,000 dollar value of prizes will be easily surpassed. This will attract at least 500 to 600 plus nominations from hunters statewide. The list of donated Prizes from Sponsors is viewable on http://www.foaa.com.au/queensland-big-boar-hunting-championships/sponsors-please-support-these-worthy-sponsors/

The last major Feral Pig Hunt of 2013 had $12,000 of prizes and 494 competitors, and raised $26,000 for charities. The feral pigs weighed-in at 6 tons, 70 pigs in all. We hope to surpass all of these figures. Prizes will be awarded for heaviest Boar, Sow, Most number of pigs, Largest Tusk, Largest Pigs Ear, Longest Pig Tail.
TV Chef Matt Golinski has been asked by Gympie Regional Council to cook a pig on the afternoon. We have already had, two half page promotion giving positive response from the Gympie Times newspaper, and they have promised more articles before the weigh-in day. Sponsorship/promotion by the Yaffa Publications magazines ‘Sporting Shooter’ and ‘Bacon Busters’, has been promised and they have been invited to attend on the day. So to have ‘Wild Boar Australia’ and ‘Guns and Game’ magazines who have also promised Sponsorship/Promotion. National TV and local media will also be in attendance on the Sunday 26th weigh-in day.
Wandering Warrior is a charity initiative of the Queensland Branch of the Australian SAS Association. Its members are veterans of Australia’s military conflicts over the past 50 years. They volunteer their time, energy and resources to conduct events which raise funds for veteran and family focussed charities. Wandering Warriors has no paid positions. With the support of corporate Australia and the Australian community, the Wandering Warriors aim to raise badly needed funds for Wounded Veterans, and their families.

If you would like to contribute as a sponsor please phone, or email Ron on the numbers below.

Hope to see you on the day, if any further information is required please reply to this
