    Last Weekend Hunting

    Being both busy at work we decided for this trip (Summer*Xmas Venison) we d book somewhere private hunting and it had to be also not ridiculously priced.
    So booking made and we're off to Carrot Town early Tursday afternoon.

    Chilly bit of snow on the mountain . Wicked sun freezing wind. All good.
    Stayed in good cheap accomodation so we had only short drive on Friday morning and after a good feed and 57000. beers up town hit the sack.
    Qucik brekky then off we go. In field and the hunting starts round 1.00 PM.

    Deer for Africa. Decision made to go for yearling hinds with no fawns on board.
    Also decided neck shots or head shots only as its a meat trip after all so had to get close up.

    Brilliant Happy. well done
    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
