    Primo Johno. Good to see you out there doing it. Did you score one of the pigs?
    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

    Re: Bow Hunt

    Hi All Sorry just seen these comments. I was taken out by a young bow hunter Gene. We had a great day. I shoot my first goat but we let the pigs go ..to small, will let them get bigger (that's what Gene said). Got within ten yards of the pigs so could have easily put one down. We also had two pigs of around 80 -90 lb just on dusk but we could not get close for a shoot. Next time.
    Cheers Johno
