    He is right at the bottom of it Nibblet and mighty hospitable
    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

    I had to push the like button on that post...no bookings as yet on the bus...so go ahead and organize a beer swilling and bullshit swapping evening.

    It has been awhile since I have heard of animals seen or shot in the area, which doesn't mean there are none around...just means I haven't heard about them...we are out and about on the horses this weekend so will be keeping an eye out for sign.

    Cheers BC, mate got one down Katikati way last weekend but it was a very lazy single moan and he managed to sneak into him.
    Looks like some nice steep country there mate!!

    All I could hear coming from Thompsons Track was bikes and quads no ideal for roaring stags in

    Not too steep in places
