    Hunt & a Fish

    Last week a mate & I headed up to lake Sumner for a couple of days to have a look around the place, have a hunt or two & do some fishing. Pretty much blew the whole three days but at least it wasn't cold. My mate had organised for us to stay in one of the huts at Loch Katrine which made it pretty civilised.

    Bit of fishing, caught lots of small salmon but nothing of decent size.

    My mate doesn't hunt but was keen to tag along to see what it's all about, we eventually came across 2 yearlings out feeding half an hour before dark one night & one of them them got a free jetboat ride! Shot it with the 7-08 that has recently had the Tui_man2 diet treatment, (6lb12oz scoped) great for carrying all day.

    To get into Lake Sumner there is a small canal that runs between Loch katrine & Sumner, here is a bit of footage boating back thru it into Katrine

    A good few days in the fresh air ODL
    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

    You look familiar? Have you had the misfortune of meeting me in Haast?
    Or worse, been dropped in the hills somewhere?
