    Interesting time stalking a deer yesterday

    Had a cool wee stalk / interaction with a deer yesterday. Have had this type of thing happen on many occasions with deer, tahr and chamois.

    My first deer with the bow was similar, I was spotted by a group of deer at 60 metres, but had one walk into range to check me out as I tucked up against a rock.

    Even as a 'expereienced' hunter things don't go as planned. I know exactly what I did wrong in this case, it was a simple case of me being too confident and clumsy as a result.

    Threw the video in here instead of magazine section as it might help give a few tips to a learning hunter.

    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    To good,Josh.I always reckoned,you find Deer with a bow,the hunt is just beginning.Find Deer with a rifle,it's usually over.
    Real guns start with the number 3 or bigger and make two holes, one in and one out." -

    Excellent viewing.
    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
