    Deer and Ducks!

    Just a quick report of my day.
    We left home heading out to a forestry block to check my camera and put another one out, we always take the rifles even on a camera check but this time we had a bit of an explore. I proceeded into the new area and it wasn't long before Scotty found some fresh pig sign, at this point i carried on on a different route through a good patch of native and Sid was showing good nose but started to get out on me a bit so i heeled him in and slowly stalked our way along a good game trail, about 100m on i look down the hill a bit and see a young stag standing there looking at me with a hind behind him. As much as i would of preferred to take the young hind there was no shot there so i lined up on the neck and CLICK, shit load it and Boom down he goes.


    I made my way out and got picked up on the road about a k away and we headed home leaving the bush to the other 3 hunters that were there as well, Busy spot!

    Got home and had a dog change out and headed to my pond to jump shoot it as i had seen 8 or 9 ducks on it yesterday.
    We snuck up the dam and all of a sudden there was 30 ducks flying out of unseen places, we managed 6 from 8 rounds, good fat birds too.


    Tomorrow we will go for another hunt in Waikaia, who knows what that will bring.

    Well done Malhunting. Great day
    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

    2 dogs, a Vizsla for the 4 legged animals and a Golden Retriever for the Ducks.
    Just realized the story is in the wrong section if a mod wants to move it.

    On yah mate. I spent the day splitting wood, spreading gravel and digging holes in our yard trying to find our collapsed grey water tile. Fun times. Hunting and fishing tomorrow though!
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    Canned the trip on Sunday because of the rain, but Mal and I had a good day yesterday. Tally for the day was a couple of parries, a goose, half a dozen pigs, a deer and a handful of possums. No good for a paua, a good 4 to 5 metre swell pushing up from the south meant we'd probably have been better off with the surfboards...so the sea was a no go.

    Dogs had a great day out hunting tho and slept all the way home. A few funny moments, mainly started by Mals vizsla who constantly annoyed my Pip as he tried and tried and tried to get one up her (she's not even in heat). Poor wee bugger exhausted himself by mid avo, can't blame a male for trying

    Fantastic Josh. You are right about the dog, all males need to give it a go.
