    I want to know more about this.
    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

    Yep. He might need some help so had better tell us the exact location of said deer.

    How do you know it was a stag? Stags generally don't bark ... hinds do

    Umm. Yeah they do but I wouldn't be able to distinguish the difference, other than a stag generally has a quicker tempo than hind when spooked.
    Do what ya want! Ya will anyway.

    But they don't generally stand around barking like a hind does

    Big emphasis on generally. I have heard/seen stags bark but not as much as hinds.





    Ah f*@k it....did you get the bugger lloydcj?

    Wrong Josh, stags will bark there arse off more than hinds. Seems to be only around the roar that I've noticed though.

    Maybe I'm just so awesome at hunting that the buggers don't get a chance to bark at me?

    Quick look this morning but as usual he`s gone, yeah he`s a stag , barked for about 15 minutes and the ground shook with the last couple , hind`s often bark at night for longer period`s 1/2 hour or more , the ridge behind the house is mature manuka with no clearings , don't use spotlights - had a idea to fell a strip 100 meters up by 5 meters wide for grass , Name:  Vit Coleman Chez Republic pic 1.JPG

    Wow stunning place Lloydcj. I am sure it is a bit of work to keep it that well groomed
