    Bush Rats by Neville Tohill - courtesy of Moonhunt

    I caught up with Moonhunt today when Phillipgr and I went up to Leigh for a quick pig hunt. Moonhunt has given me this book for the reading pleasure of forum members. The idea being that as each of us read it we sign the inside cover (much in the same way as Muckos Hat). I will read it first and then will pass it on to Phillipgr. Any one interested in reading it after Phillip register your interest here and we will pay it forward as Monhunt wants us to.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    I'll be keen, one question though. Will the pages not be stuck together after Phil reads it?

    Yes true but at Phil's age things can get exciting when you least expect it

    Spotlighting is one of the best I've read of the venison era. Really gets you in the mood.The NZ book on the Jennifer Mary Beard murder was able to capture the same age and feeling about the time. Some authors have it whilst many NZ hunting books are really only good to start the fire with.
