    First Blood AR 1 Deer nil

    Qucik trip to Wanganui for three of us. Left Fri 5.00pm .Arrived at hut 11.35 pm pitch black and fell into the beds.
    Early start and big walk then The midget gets a longish shot away 350 mtrs and we,re on the board.
    Me turns round afetr wed collected out gear to go sort it and theres a 2 yr old looking at me.
    Day pack on just standing there and it bolts. Up with the rifle and 6 bangs later Im thinking Im in the shit here slow down
    think about it relax bang .It drops like a stone and the boys were impressed cos it was fair goin for it..
    So the new gun shot better than the user there for sure.

    Good trip Happy. The young fellah is a bit cool looking in those shades.
    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

    Mohawk the top one is a red by the look of it but the bottom one is a fallow.

    You may be right R93 but I thought the hair looked too coarse and too red on the first one. More in the look of a red.

    Both fallow. Top is "common" color phase tail strip and just visible in that pic is the black surround on the bum.
    Menil look very similar to commons but lack the dorsil stripe down the tail and surround to the bum.Also have a very prominent line of spots like a "plimsol line" on a boat.
    Bottom one looks melanistic but could be a trick of low light and camera confused by the blaze?

    VC I see reds and fallow every day from out the kitchen window. I would have sworn on a stack of bibles that the top one was a red. Anyway, you are right about the need to get out more. That is going to be my New Year's resolution.
