    It's looks rather low altitude, what abouts (roughly) is that at? I wish they came all the way down to our grass,

    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

    I was out a week ago.. Easily accessible public land. Only saw bulls in the catchment we were in, but around 20 so gave a decent sample size. Last/First thing they were down around 900-1000, but didn't see any lower down than that. They were mostly bedding down around the 11-1200m mark, with a few up at more like 1300.

    We could see sign where they'd been down around 800, maybe a few weeks or a month prior.
