    A HUNT TURNS TO CUSTARD

    We are getting a early spring in canterbury so I headed out for a wee look to see whats about. Only had a afternoon so headed off into ashley forest to hunt a warm face thats been good to me in the past . Got walking about 1 pm , perfect conditions a cross wind so could hunt across the face there and back . Was going to use this trip as to see how my dog was going to go on deer after the bird season . I got onto heaps of fresh pig sign , which dog was keen but keept him in which was good. The area looked real good for a deer and soon was onto fresh marks of a spiker or smaller stag. As we hunted it got real thick ant the dog got a whif of him . As this is the first Deer for the dog and me in thick bush I wasnt sure what to do. Beau (dog) was sort of semi pointing , still but his head and nose was moving . It was too thick to see anything so I would try and out flank this deer ,WRONG
    As beau looked intent on holding on the scent I tryed to get a look . The deer must have broke out with beau in toe .

    In the time I had worked this out It was too late gooooooone . What f@#k up How did this happen or more the point why did I let this happen.
    I now had 1.5hr to get back to the truck before its dark which had taken 2.5 hrs . So had to leave in the hope he wll back track so draged my swannie behind me to give him a better chance to find his way back . When I got back to the truck there was a note saying I had been locked in
    . The ashley forest rally was starting on saturday morning . This was turnig pear shaped quickly . I had no cell phone cover , its dark , no dog , no way out . So was off to get coverage , bugger my mrs got her phone off , got hold of sercurity who locked me in , he was to let me out at 7.30 am . I had 12 hrs to find my dog or he will probably get run over by a rally car. Full moon was the only thing in favour . 10 pm found him was back tracking his way home , what a relief . Now had an uncomfortable cold sleep ahead . Three am was awake and seen lights in the forest , was the police looking for me . My mrs had called them at 1am , her phone had been off and the message I had left was delivered at 2am WTF. She rung them straight away but they where happy to come and let me out , as it was not my falt id been locked in as some dick head had taken the signs down.
    So home at 4.30 am . Now ive got a majour issue with Beau on deer ! So If this doesnt get picked up by the dog experts with what to do next I will put some thing in dog section . Munsey

    Munsey, I don't know the first thing about hunting dogs but I bet you would like five minutes with the idiot that took the sign down.
    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

    Oh OK I sort of understand now. Should point and not chase.

    Stop the hunting with him and go back to square one and start steadiness training again from the backyard onto rabbits etc etc. It's crucial to go back and get it right!
