    Whirinaki

    Thinking about doing a weekend mission into either the central or upper whirinaki huts this coming weekend. Has anyone been in the area recently? What are the animal numbers like and whats the bush like? Or just any general info?
    Cheers,
    Luke

    Not if I am showing them around BRADS. I give everyone a guided tour of where the deer have been.
    Barefoot, Toby, BRADS and 4 others like this.
    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
