Scorch - thanks for the info. I honestly thought they were varmits everywhere, since they are a non-native invasive species.

The hunting club I used to belong to was very large (9000 acres) so the drivers used horses to run the dogs. This was in South Louisiana where using dogs to run deer is legal. The lead driver jumped a nice buck and was close enough to take a shot himself, so he pulled his 30/30 and shot his horse behind the ear, unfortunately while in full gallop. Luckily the driver only hurt his pride. Can't say the same for the horse though.

My cousin was hunting quail on horseback with a little 20" barreled 20ga, some scaled quail flushed, my cousin shot, 4" of the horse's ear was vaporized in #9, the horse decided my cousin would look nice draped over a 5' high clump of prickly pear.
Cousin wanted to shoot the horse but his dad was laughing too hard and would not let him shoot it.

Ah Danny, Pig hunting in the "west Island" -great fun. When I was on course in Brisbane one of the RAR boys took me o0ut to shoot some roos and pigs on his old mans place. So I get off the plane, and jump in the landcruiser. after 3 hours driving, I say to the guy- when do we get to your old mans place- and he said- we have been on it for 2 hours! Man, we shot some pigs that weekend- about 100 I recall.
