    Samba Hunting Australia

    Hello to everyone,

    We had a weeks solid hunting in Victoria's High country and had a bit of luck in FINALLY getting a chance at getting a shot away (to you dirty minded lot that isn't what I mean) Happen to chance upon a nice stag and belted him with the 308 Norma. As it was he came out from the timber after we spotted a doe some 15 minutes earlier and sat and glassed for a period. I hadn't fitted the March scope as the mounts did not turn up in time so I put the old 6x compact Leupold on for the trip. We ranged down the gully from where he had appeared at a shade under 500 yards. (496) and not thinking much of it began to glass the surrounding area when he appeared. To be honest I shit when I first saw him and a quick look through the scope, then put the cross hairs high on the shoulder and let rip. The stag lunged forward and dropped into the reeds, the 200 grain Swift A-Frame worked a charm. Not being much of a story teller it was all over and we made our way down to where the stag lay. The strange thing was the roar or the shot up the valley seemed to carry for a very long time as I watched to see if the stag would rise and run after he was hit.

    Anyway here are a few picks,Name:  DSC_6262s.jpg

    Your wife strongly recommended it what ever it was, come to think of it it was a bit salty.

    Cheers

    Well done rob. That was awesome
    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

    Cheers Rushy, I dropped him into the taxidermist on the way home, hope to see him in a couple of months, the Boar mount is on the go and looking forward to picking them both up when they are done.

    Cheers Rob
