    An early start with an American.

    Went for a hunt today in a well hunted area although most don't hunt it well.
    I had a good friend from America over for work and we had to make the most of the time we had to get out and get a Red Deer on the ground for him. We (Justin Scotty and Myself) got to the block at about 6-6.30am and had a young knobby stag on the ground with in the hour.
    Justin was stoked, as was I, we used Garmin Rinos on the stalk so I sat back and watched as they stalked in and to be fair they were invaluable especially when 2 parries flew over the deer and put it on high alert, once in the area SID the Vizsla took over and led the way.



    We seen about 7 for the couple hours we were on the hill before it started raining so then it was off to the pub for a well earned beer and a feed.
    The first photo was taken with the Garmin Rino and the second with a Nikon D7000 so im happy with the quality of the photos it produces.

    Excellent stuff MH, I bet your Yankee mate was over the moon with that.
    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

    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    The boots have a wire instead of the traditional laces and the circle on the tongue is a wind up device, so you wind the wire up by turning the circle knob and then push it down to lock it into place which holds the wire with the required tension on them.
