    Cabin fever

    So for the last week me & my mate have been hanging around the house , the alarms have been set but each morning we wake up to either rain or gusty wind or both & a sleep in never really works either with pesky kids especially for my mate he sleeps in the lounge so he,s the first target they stumble across
    Anyway decided a walk was in order so at 4pm we were off hoping for a break in the weather , well it never came gusty wind , water from all angles & cold but it had been like it for a few days so the deer have to eat rite ! working on that theory set forth it wasn't long before I was complaining about my already soggy toilet paper from wiping the scope , reg had a slightly better system of wrapping the scope in his swannie , crusing along we spotted a hind which was perfect as with the roar pretty much done I found it a little refreshing to just be looking for some meat BOOM reg shot the hind & 3 or 4 others that were unseen bolted from the edge of a clearing after gutting it for latter collection carried on this time I was in the lead with the 22-250 after around a K I spotted what appeared to be a spiker scooting along a game trail but it disappeared quickly & was hard to tell what it was in the gloom but was confidant we hadn't spooked it so we carried on , rounded a corner & here was a young stag head down feeding front on so I shot him in the top of the neck at 50m after 2 lengthy carries we got them down to the track & onto the deck of the truck heading down the bumpy road I could see headlights approaching we pulled over & heres an old friend , first thing he said was poaching bastards & cabin fever was driving him loco so he,d been out & caught 2 pigs I hadn't had a feed of pork in ages so one followed me home that man will be getting some beer

    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
