    Father & Son time (hunting vid)

    Had a good little hunt with my eldest on the weekend. Came across a red in early velvet. This area is about to be 1080'd so I was happy enough taking him despite his potential in a few months time... All did not go quite as planned.

    Good stuff Feral.
    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 work lads, shit and bad shots happen. At least you ended up with it, the deer I hit badly yesterday was unfortunately not found.

    Brow tines looked decent too, so I'm sure he would have shaped up OK for the roar. He was well fed and certainly a lot of meat off him. zero fat yet though.

    I have it in my freezer, but short of PG wrightsons, I'm not sure where to take it. Any idea on the ballpark value?
