    It will always be a trophy to me. Finally lost my virginity - first deer.

    Finally blooded the new rifle and scope. After some major misses earlier in the day (scope was NOT zeroed clearly), eventually worked out the POA, and nailed a fallow hind in the neck at 200m.

    Thanks to Stu#71 for being the patient hunting buddy for the last 2years.

    Well done Scottrods
    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

    Well done scottrods.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!
