    Spot-X

    Stoked! bought me the spot x book today and i wish i bought this a year or two ago when i begun hunting...

    anyway this has got me really pumped for 2017 hunting. i think its great especially with each tip that comes with each location.

    just hope they will provide a few successful spots for me this year so i can lose my deer "virginity"...

    The book will put you in the right area. After that it will be up to your skills.

    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

    Damn, thought this was going to a thread for everyone to put up details to favourite locations with only a 5Min flat walk and 100% success rate.... Got the book yet to go and check out any of the locations yet though...

    I checked out one of the spots I read in the bookshop. Buggered if I could find a great big X with animals standing on it when I went there.

    That just brought a smile to my face in an otherwise prick of a day.

    Google earth is probably a better way of research than those books. All the best though mate I hope you get onto something up there.

    Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Your not wrong, Word of mouth and a lot of time in an area is the way to go. Google Earth can mess you up though,What can look like large open meadows can be 2m tall toi toi laced with blackberry lol
