    New species

    The wife and I jumped the ditch to visit family and partake in some hunting, fishing and crabbing in Nth Qld. It was a great trip with new species taken hunting and fishing and plenty of blue swimmers and a few mud crabs in the pots.

    Almost but not quite. Well done John.
    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

    Good effort mate!

    The skin would be a trophy in itself.

    No possummatti I just took photos but my son is going to cure his skin. I didn't think it was worth the hassle getting a green skin through customs. I had 3 boxes of 9.3x64 brass with me and everyone I contacted at Jetstar had conflicting info as to if or how I could carry them on the plane so the skin wasnt something I bothered with.
