    Camp talk

    Ok, so myself, craigc and flicka decided on a trip to the Ruahine tops, on the way up we got to talking and it made me wonder what others talk of while on hunting trips , anyway the word mirkin came up and Craig who shall remain nameless had a number of questions I just couldn't answer so we're hoping you could all help.

    What is it
    Why are they used
    Etc

    Please feel free to help us out

    Not sure if I should answer this.....

    A Mirkin is a pubic wig. In the previus couple centuries where medical issues were prominent (think 1700s through early 1900s) Prostitutes used them so they could clean themselves up ready for the next customer and not be all covered in "muck". It was in part a hygiene issue, and also gave a good impression for clients much like cleaning a car before selling it.....

    Haha, I think that the saying "what goes on tour, stays on tour" should be applied to 95% of what is discussed around camp. Best one I heard, took two of our staff (chilean blokes) for an overnighter and after one or three too many whiskeys they told us about how they have a "communal fleshlignt" in the shower at their house (they were living with two other chilean blokes, four of them in the house) they reckoned it was ok though because the rule was that you had to "wear protection", but as the bottle got emptier one of these blokes got the courage to confess that since the other guys use protection he had been giving it a go bare-back, then the other bloke admitted he had been doing the same thing, I hadnt laughed that much for a good while!

    Hence the term "Beaver" as such wigs were often made from Beaver fur.

    It just goes to show that you are never too old to learn something new. What a sheltered life I have led.
    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

    Good grief, can't you two even go into the Ruhaines without deferring to your security blanket of the forum for advice?
