Toko School Competition Results

This marks the end of the wild boar hunting competitions for the Ridgeline Judging Systems Teams throughout New Zealand. It has been a very good season for the pig hunting competitions all over the North Island with an abundance of wild boars in most areas. Bigger numbers of boars are being weighed in at the comps. This certainly was the case at the Toko School Wild Boar Hunt with 31 boar on the rack at the finish of the weigh in, the most ever. This year the team has officiated at a lot of competitions and the Toko comp would rate among the top comps for quality boars, just look at the results!  Taranaki hunter Brett Collett brought in a monster boar which weighed in at 116.2 kg or 225.6 lb, that he caught over in the King Country. This boar also had a very good set of tusks which came in 2nd in the tusk section measuring 21 2/8 NZDA. Score. It always amazes me when a big boar comes into a competition, how quickly there are 20-30 expert judges all of a sudden. But none of them want to join the Ridgeline Judging Team. This year Alison Eagar, Paul Kowalewski, Miles Waite, Gemma Smith and Amie Topless have done the Toko School proud with their organisational skill and putting on such a great event. A very big thank you to all those wonderful sponsors who sponsor this competition every year and to all the other people who helped out on the day.
