    1080 drop in Arthur's pass.

    Anyone thinking of heading to the Arthur's pass area for a hunt should probably think about heading elsewhere.
    For the past two days, whilst working above the rock shelter, we've been rained on by pellets so the chamois population will be taking a direct hit!
    Not happy.
    :-(

    Totally irreconcilable with our clean green image.
    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!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    They had a guy walking down the road picking up the pellets that had fallen onto it.
    Picked up a few ourselves that the Kea hadn't noticed, but would think that the 16 tons of the stuff that the guy said they were dropping will wipe out everything in the area?

    In a civilized and cultivated country, wild animals only continue to exist at all when conserved by the sportsman. The excellent people who protest against all hunting, and consider sportsmen as enemies of wildlife are wholly ignorant of the fact that in reality the genuine sportsman is by all odds the most important factor in keeping wild creatures from total extinction.
    Theodore Roosevelt
