    That is a beautiful animal Linyera.
    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 beauty of these hunts is that these animals are in absolute freedom between marshes, rivers and islands in the north of my country

    Beautiful animals alright.
    They must be right up there in antler weight/body weight ratio ?

    There was a liberation back in the day but they didn't survive. Would have been mean!

    the size of the antler is directly provided by genetics and nutrition

    Of course. Was just saying they seem to have a good antler weight to body weight ratio as a species unlike say a Roe deer.
