    Manged another one to the 243!

    Managed another nice yearling bushstalking in DOC today. One of my best shots i recken, freestanding neckshot at 90 m. Spooked a hind and the yearling but yelling out as they were departing over the top of the next ridge stopped the yearling in its tracks and though a very small gap pulled off one of my better shots so another good day!

    Spectacular. 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

    243. A terrible calibre for deer.

    Terrible for the deer that is, good work!

    High calibers in the bush for the rambos, low calibers for the skilled is how I see it < I await the onslaught of abuse.

    That is why I use a .17 air rifle on elephants Rusky. It is all about shot placement. Ha ha ha ha
