    Goose Shoot

    Went Goose shooting today with the Napier NZDA.

    Helping out a farmer who wants to keep the numbers under control.

    I took my old mans Benelli Armi 12ga and a couple of boxes of #2 shot.

    This gun has not been shot for a few years now since his passing and I haven't fired a shot gun for over ten years.

    Did ok with it too, Nine geese for 22 rounds fired

    Fired six rounds before I dropped the first one though

    Breasted out those that I could recover an ended up with this lot, even the cat got a feed out of it.

    Now have to figure out what to do with them.

    Winter casseroles, Salami etc.

    Cheers

    Yes it does. Smoked Salami

    I also like to do casseroles and stews in the slow cooker over winter.

    Might have to flip a coin or something.

    Half and half? Or turn this lot into salamis and then that gives you an excuse to shoot some more for casseroles

    Good thinking Toby.

    In total I believe 130 geese were shot today by 15 shooters.

    Can you shoot near the airport next the road there in the lagoon? Seen lots of ducks and geese in there

    Genius Toby.
    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

    Toby

    NO!

    It's a bird sanctuary.

    I fed the cat some of the trimmings from the Goose Breasts

    I had to lock him outside while I processed the meat,

    He wasn't happy and sat at the door Meowing until I had finished.

    That's when I fed him some of the trimmings.

    Looks like they hit the spot with him....... Lazy Bastard
