    Went for a hunt on Thursday..........

    My son and I went for a hunt on Thursday. We picked out a bivvy that was a reasonable distance from the road, and after a 5-1/2 hr hike we arrived. The previous party took 8 hours!! The wind was up our arse all the way in, and the closest we got was a few splashed rocks in the stream as the deer scattered ahead of the stinky son ( must of been him - I don't stink). The last climb up and over into another watershed and down to the bivvy was a killer. It's always fun dropping over watersheds and finding the creek is flowing the opposite way! After a feed and a bit of bullshit, we hit the sack.
    I looked at my watch and it was 5:15am I made a brew. It was taking a while to get light, and my watch had somehow gone backwards, 'cos it was now 4:30am. Oh well - at least we wern't late.
    We snuck like f... downstream, and much to my mates disgust, she saw us first, and with a clatter of hooves, a couple of white arses disappeared through the toitoi.
    We shot up a neat looking sidecreek, and came across a beauty slip that should have been crawling with bambi's, but only one goat was on it. The hut book revealed that goat cullers had been in the week before, so the lack of sign was to be expected. Reubags said "well there are still two goats left" to which I said "where's the other one?". He just smiled and said " you, ya old goat". We found gutbags and hind quarter bones hanging in the trees, so our remote destination had obviously been thrashed just prior to our trip.
    We decided to hoof it back halfway to the vehicle, and fly camp, to cut down the slog out the next day. Nothing was spotted the next day through the river of sweat running from my bald head. When we reached our ute, a couple of guys were languishing in their recliners, under a gazebo beside their car, sipping ice cold beers from a chilly bin. " After the usual banter, I asked if they had gone for a hunt. " Yep" said one. "We got two last evening just past your ute"
    Bloody two!!!! That's just taking the piss. Their whole hunt took ten minutes.

    Nice, it always pays to hunt handy spots now and again for sign. Last two stags took me all of 15 mins for both hunts, people just walking too far and past the animals. Sometimes thou a good walk will bring rewards too

    Just put in a coffee machine last month. Got told it's too expensive, but I'm fighting this one! I have obviously baffled the hierachy with bullshit, because there has been no response to my long winded argument.

    Maca this is not a dating site. The old goat comment made me laugh Lentil.
    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 rewards are not tangible. There are some subtle benefits ......... ah who am I kidding. I just wanted some bloody venison. I think it's back to the favourite " meat safe" next time.
