    Fiordland trip

    Hi guys, just been on a 6 day trip round Chalky and Preservation inlet with Takapu Charters. Got lucky with the weather, only one days rain.5 on board were divers so no shortage of crays. At one spot we were freediving them in 2/3 metres of water. Got 3 deer missed a few others. Skippers a bit differtent but as nice enough bloke. highly recommend for yr bucket list. sorry havnt got photos sorted yet.Cheers

    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

    How in the hell do you know what dates he was planning on going down to Fiordland Neckshot? He never said so you either had to get it from his imaginary friend or are guessing. I will be at the Sika Show mate. I will be wearing the forum T shirt and the beanie.You can count on that

    So you know how to swim then. just as well coz you'll be going for a swim up the Horomanga if you keep that lip up.
