    Tick...tick...tick

    Brian and my body clocks ticked over another year each a few days ago so a try out last night to see if they are still working was in order...

    Brian shot a nice boar with his 6.5-06 and had a big haul up out of a steep gully with it. Big ups to him because he carted the whole thing out.

    Meanwhile I was in another area popping off a couple of hinds with my .223. First one at 365 yards and 2nd one at 330 yards.

    I carted 2 legs and 4 back steaks back to the road and then walked the couple of KM's to meet Brian back at the truck. We got there virtually at the same time and then we drove to my pack and meat and went and got the rest of the 2 hinds together and carried that to the truck.

    I crawled into bed at 1.15am this morning. Too buggered to have a shower - I noticed some blood on the sheets when I got up this morning so I folded the bed covers back over it before my wife spotted it

    So the verdict is that my 72 year old bod still works sort of ok and with regular oil changes and servicing we both should be ok for a wee while yet. We are off down to the SI after wallabies for a week in 10 days time.

    That's one pooped pooch snoozing there
    When I hit 40 I vowed and declared never to cart an entire carcass outta the scrub again. Well done
    That should keep you and your friends in veni for a wee while. Great thing with the .223 is the lack of damaged meat when accurately applied to the vitals.

    The main purpose for the trip was to get meat for a charity that I donate to. They take as much as I can give them on a regular basis. I think that they might draw the line at a smelly old boar though

    Good stuff guys although reading that does make me feel lazy and apathetic.

    Don't know how I put this into "upcoming events"?? I wonder if a mod can shift it to its proper home The Magazine? @Spanners?

    You 2 silly old buggers are an inspiration. I still have a couple of decades to go before reaching your age, and most of your exploits make me feel tired

    Well done men. Top work
    After 60, the old saying "Use it or lose it" couldn't be truer. Just keep on using it .....the alternative isn't to flash!
