The Awatere Shortest Day Pig Hunt - Richard Todd

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:41 pm on 21 June 2013

The snow and cold isn't going to stop pig hunters from taking part in the inaugural Awatere Shortest Day Pig Hunt this weekend. The Starborough Tavern in Seddon, south of Blenheim, already has 150 registered hunters from as far afield as Otago. The hunt started today at noon and continues until the weigh in on Sunday. There are prizes for the largest pigs, oldest and youngest hunters, biggest tusks, and best-presented pig. Richard Todd is the owner of the Starborough Tavern.
