    New knife

    Well the daughter has started her hunting career with shooting a goat the other week, and like my son have started thinking ahead and a knife I am sure will be needed, Alex got his once he shot his first deer so I am getting ready for that moment. Did a deal with a mate and a blank arrived at home on Friday , got the handle.on and partiality shaped today, next will be a brown sheath with tan stitching. Should look ok!?

    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
