    Changing coat

    Was watching a young red hind last night and noticed that she was already changing from her winter coat, she had a clearly visible dorsal stripe and you could see a line just along the top of her ribs and around her rump where shorter darker hair was replacing the drab grey hair.
    Seemed a bit early as normally I dont see it till the end of October round here - sign of a mild winter maybe??

    I have had one for the last twenty plus years Marky. They are a good coat.
    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
