    Fun times camping out on the farm with the boys

    Start em young I say. Both boys have just turned 5.

    First up was a silly hare who tried to hide on the track from the farmer at 5m range. We were following after, so missed a shot.
    The boys were fascinated with the recently deceased animal, itís soft fur and what happens after you shoot and dress it.
    Iím taking the pic, so thatís my mates grandson, him and my boy on the right.

    Next up was a tree bear that was dumb enough to be a Ďsit on the wooden paddock gate bearí instead that I slayed with my .22lr AR (not pictured) at about 1 metre range. Itís mates that it was squabbling with were very lucky that I wasnít sure about a safe background.

    Next morning I zapped Harry the Hare at around 110m with my Sako .223 (in the background). This was less than 300m from camp, so close I hadnít even checked the POI with the new DPT can when Harry was silly enough to lope in clear sight on the track in the morning sun. Seems the POI with can is nearly the same as without it. Bonus.
    No recoverable meat though, as the 65gn Gameking Gameking quartered through the shoulder and exploded out the other side. Very messy.

    The boys loved shooting the .22lr on a steel plate and seeing how real furry and cute animals were dressed and chopped. No greenie vegan influences from daycare and school thank goodness.

    The photos were the right way up on my mobile, which I used to upload the story.

    But not in Chrome. Annoying.
