    Yes it will be a good trip. I wanted to go for trophies but was outvoted 3 to 1 . Numbers and skins it is.

    This will be my last decent break for a little while. Wifes due in June.

    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

    Are we on the same ridge at the same time? It would be a real mistake to let me go first and I sure as hell don't want you there before me!

    But seriously, if we are clashing, I can shift.

    With that amount of time in the bush alone you would wear your willie out Phillip. And us fellah's would have to keep your librarian company.

    Good stuff Nathan F. I'd like to get out for even a day trip.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    I'm sure I could entice her to a romantic evening helicopter ride - I'll just have to hide all the hunting gear from sight!
