    Down the mighty Motu with good friends and this naughty young spiker decides to sit in the sun a bit too long for his own good. It sounds good but that was one of x7 all sitting like ducks in a row in the pig fern with a frost on the ground just a few feet away. The photo was taken after the recovery and at the same time my mate in the photo had a pig, what a surprise when we met up by the trail at exactly the same time!

    1000PA well done on the deer but as an old fart that is concerned that young impressionable bucks might get wrong messages, can I suggest that you remember not to take a photo of a rifle with a closed bolt pointing in your direction?
    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

    Well done:thumbup:

    But while Im sure they were checked and rechecked that they were empty.

    Always point a firearm in a safe direction.

    I have a real aversion to being anywhere near the loud end even when the bolt is open.

    The rifle with bolt closed is a very good point. We are the first to insist on safety and I'm quite shocked to see the photo of myself like that. I can assure you all there is no ammo in there but that doesn't excuse one for such a blunder as to close the bolt on any firearm without intending to fire it.
    40+ years of safe hunting and I go and do that!
