    Another interesting hunting article from Stuff

    Maybe there’s been a change in the editorial staff recently...

    Anyone on here got memories from those days? Hard case work for sure.

    Works for me on iPad.
    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

    All good fellas. I had to fix the link on the PC. For some reason when I try and edit a post for spelling for a broken link on the iPad in Chrome it won’t work, I’ll work it out.

    There was a book written about heli work by a bloke with long hair who wore an orange jumpsuit, was a pioneer of a sort, highly regarded. Who was that, anyone know? Really want to get hold of that book.

    It is interesting to listen to those old blokes talk about their escapades. They certainly took some risks doing what they did.

    Not being a smart ass but you just described 99% of the guys I worked with in the industry.

    They're all pioneers of some sort.
    Tim Wallis was the true pioneer of venison and capture work.

    Is it possible that you are talking about Hunter and the Hunted by our mate Graeme Sturgeon?
