    New Year's Eve report

    As stated in the other thread I headed up the rangitata for New Years. I had a young greenhorn with me who had never been after thar. Basically the weather was crap. We battled gale nor westers , rain , sleet and even some snow. Still had a good time. We spotted 20 odd thar and managed some meat after a big climb and stalk through some bluffs.

    Good result Nathan
    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

    Beautiful countryside, is the river normally that low for this time of year?

    The rivers probably 2000 odd yards from where that pic was taken. It doesn't get a huge flow after the rain but was hairy enough coming out

    I used to carry hind quarters and back steaks like that attached to the skin.
    Quick to do and comfortable to carry but i always ended up getting the back steaks all grubby.
    Did you just use the skin as straps and put the steaks in a bag or have some cunning plan to keep them clean?

    Okay, was just looking at what seemed to me like a high water mark indicated by grey alongside water's edge. Great piece of real estate nonetheless.

    Yes just use the skin as straps. Back steaks in the pack
