    Mate speak to or PM @Spook He lives right there and knows the good oil.
    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

    The tracks are for walking on - not stalking on

    If you are right handed and try to walk in a straight line over distance without a reference point, you will walk in a clockwise direction. Oposite applies to left hookers. (disclaimer..this is according to Mythbusters)

    Yes well it was as black as ebony so no reference point at all and as it turned out it didn't require much distance at all

    On the Thursday before Easter we had torrential rain and brought down many slips on Thompsons Track...at this point I don't know how far you can actually walk as I have only done about 1.5 kms...that was about 6 slips...the forestry guys are saying there are plenty of deer at the 6 km mark...they [forestry] come in from a separate private access road...There are always stories about 12 pointer stags being shot around Tuahu...never seen one yet in the flesh...most of that area is done under lights...I have never understood why people rush into areas where massive stags have been shot...like, its gone, it aint there no more, history...shit loads of deer around in the Kaimais...just got to push your way past the wankers and get in deeper...you will hear plenty of peeps bleat about the supplejack, but that's where the big boys are...deep in the shit...secateurs and a good mind set is what you need.
    Pointer, Pengy, Toby and 1 others like this.
    Which is worse, ignorance or apathy...I don't know and don't care.
