    Stag last nite

    Knocked off work a bit early yesterday arvo. Decided to go for a quick walk over the other side of the lake. Had only gone for about an hour or so when I came on to some real fresh sign in the Pampas Grass. Jazz showed a lot of interest so I let her get out a little bit as she started casting. After about 3mins she goes on hard point looking down over a small bank. So I sneak around just in time to see a stag jump up and start looking around. That was my chance so I took a neck shot at about 50mtrs and down he goes. Jazz was beside herself and threatened to wag her self out of her body. A quick field dress and I rolled him over to put him on my back. Realised that I couldn't get up and having a fair way to go in limited light I just ended up taking the back legs and steak. A quick trip back this morning for the front quarters and the head of 8 points. Wasn't that long ago and I would of run out with the whole thing on my back. In the past and in the same area I sometimes shot 2 and just relayed them out. Oh for the strength and fitness of youth. Not worth a photo antlers only good for trout Priests.

    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

    She's a 3yr old Black and White Wired Head Pointer. Didn't hunt her last year as I was recovering from a MB accident and the year before, her first year we got 16 Deer, Reds and Fallow over a 6 month period. She's handy on the Ducks, as well as things that go bump in the middle of the night. I use her for all sorts of security work and often have to rely on her for my safety. How do up load a Photo??

    Et voila! Not a stag but a nice wee pup nonetheless.
