    How to : Hunt Sika Stag, Red Stag, Bush Hunting projectile choice

    Check out Martin Askes Sika deer hunting information on his website, very well written and easy to understand.

    Click on the pdf links and print them all off, store in a folder and read them as your experience grows, there is literally 30yrs of Sika hunting experience being passed on there, for free !!!!!!!!

    I've read a few of his articles, they're very good.
    Hopefully he colates them into a book!

    Just downloaded them all, I think I have most of the magazines anyway, but this is like a mini bush stalking encyclopedia. Some great info in these articles.

    Rod and Rifle do the same with the Wapiti Blockss and Westland Areas:

    Printed, ringbindered, read, taken with me on my week hunting sika in Clement Mill rd.

    It was great reference material, for when i saw sign in the bush i could go back to camp and read about what the sign was and what it meant etc.

    Richie here is the Rushy condensed version which you can copy to a square of toilet paper so it will have a dual use in the bush.

    1. Prints on the ground means that deer have walked that way
    2. Chewed out leaves on the ground means that deer have been feeding there
    3. Poop on the ground means that deer have been crapping there .... and finally
    4. Deer on the ground means you have been successful.

    Ha ha ha ha
    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

    Not as hard as we think RR...just takes time to get to know an area and to learn where NOT to waste your time. Luck also has a lot to do with it, unless you're a lousy shot, in which case, you should probably sell your guns and go fishing :-)

    Spring is nearly here, I have just re read Martins info as a refresher and I learn more each time i read it.

    Or the ol brain forgot some of it and I'm kidding myself that I have only just learnt it

    Just think how much i will learn in 5yrs time when i read it again
