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)

Everyone acknowledged that without the tireless work of the valiant volunteers who worked so hard to put on the event, nothing would happen.
