    Good on ya Samba and good luck. I need to get my deer in and drench them and treat them for ticks but I also have a long list of other "want to do's" which includes putting some venison in the freezer but due to time constraints that will not involve getting away hunting so I will probably just dash up the back. I also plan to take a scope off a rifle and replace it with a Leupold that I got back in May. The redundant scope will be going to a good home down south.

    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

    They are flighty animals to deal with and don't respond to conventional herding technique as sheep and cattle do so you need to remain calm at all times. The most fun time is when I take the hard antler off just before the roar. If I get the timing wrong there is mayhem in the shed and yards.

    Used to really enjoy working with Deer. I found the first drenching and tagging of the Fawns ( live wire Springs) need eyes in the back of your head. Getting the breeding Elk off and on the truck had it moments. Sadly the Farm was sold and I lost my contract.

    weekend with family..was supposed to be slaying the fish but looking like time on the hill trapping and maybe some time in the pelorus river chasing some sea runs. Will bust out the surfcasters as well.. so plenty to enjoy.

    All the same time with my not so young kids (teenagers) will be a precious thing as they're looking at traveling next year.. damn time passes so fast.

    keep safe everyone!!

    I've got about a billion dog things to do this weekend but am hoping to get the other half out on Monday arvo to knock over a goat Just waiting on ARDave to set me up with a good spot out the back of Wainui, bro!

    Also I am a bit saddened looking at the pesticide summary around Wellington is these last few months I've bought a muzzle for the boy after seeing what rat poisoning has done to a couple of dogs in the vet clinic atm.

    Read somewhere that back of Wainui got heavy 1080 along all the way down the hutt during winter should be safe but you never know. Prevention way better than cure eh !!!

    I've got two doc blocks to hunt but not sure if we can gain access to one of them as earnslaw have closed down the blocks they run in the same area. Apparently some low life fucked with the gates and stuffed it up for all.

    Should be interesting hunting if we can get to the block as there is quite alot of snow on the mountain at the moment.

    Will be setting up my new trail camera as well.
