    First kill..

    It's no stag but I'm still proud of it. Shot my first goat yesterday then learn't to butcher it.. luckly Northdude shot one too so I could watch and shadow at the same time. I got a huge adrenaline rush when we spotted the mob, so I had to calm right down and take a deep breath before I shot it.. I still need lots of practice but definitely hungry for more..

    Any other hunters out there take their partners out hunting? The ladies don't know what they missing out on..

    Looks like a nice eater, well done. I have taken my other half out for a turkey hunt. I'm sure she would do more, but the 4 year old slows us down a bit.

    Not for the want of trying. Would love my good wife to come out hunting with me but she is just not interested. In January got her to come out and spot for some deer on a hillside. We saw a spiker early on and that was that.....she had seen her deer and wanted to go home. I managed to get her to hang on for another half hour and we saw another hind and calf. She was pretty Ho Hum about it.

    In her defence though, I have to say, when it comes to dressing out any beast, be it a domestic one from our own paddock or a wild beast from in the bush, she is there up to her elbows in carcass along beside me.

    Again, well done and look forward to seeing your next one.

    Cheers
    Phil

    Took my wife out a couple of weekends ago, we stayed in a hut overnight, hunted that evening and first thing the next morning, Stags where roaring hard out, we even got to watch two fighting, She loved it can't wait to get back in the hills and now wants her own binoculars

    My wife is a mean as hunter. She was taught right, if you can't deal to it, don't shoot it.

    This is the next step for you MrsNorthdue, did hubby tell you that?
