    I reckon we have all been caught with scope zoomed up at least ONCE....trick is to learn from it.
    I did it once id spotted a hind & spiker on the opposite ridge about 300m away dropped the spiker on the spot with the 2506 so I kinda just stood there enjoying the moment but then I could hear pounding hoofs the bloody hind had crossed the gully to run past me 10 paces away , dam scope was still on 7 , of course I just pulled the trigger on the hairy patch deer smacked into the fence breaking the top wire & off into the bush , first deer I ever wounded I chased it around till it was to dark to see , it must have been near death as it wasn't going far before lying down but I just couldn't get the sights on it again , what a tool lesson learnt .

    Cheers guys, ive got a single shot 45 70 with a red dot im going to start using, no zoom issues then and always one up the spout so only have to pull back the trigger and boom. Couldnt resist frying up the tenderloins last night and they were great so looking forward to tucking into the rest!

    All good. We roasted up a leg last night and everyone was happy. We had it last night, tonight and probably tomorrow night as well. Beats the hell out of rabbit, hare and duck.

    next problem is they get a taste for it and want more so they expect you to get more.

    that not a "problem" as such...its an excuse/reason to go hunting AGAIN...... the kids nag wife to let Dad go hunting is better than you nagging for permission...you get an animal you gain double brownie points...kids are happy,dog is happy,wife is happy and you might even get a leg over so you can be happy too.
