    The hunt that wasn't.

    Alarm went off at 4am this morning so i turn it off and txt the mate, Its pissing down lets leave it till later in the morn aye. Sweet as is the reply and i crawl back into bed.
    By 9am its stopped so i fire off a txt but no reply is forth coming, i decide to get some gear together and just go to check my camera no rifle needed.
    I make it out to the spot and make my way to the camera, almost right beside the camera and i see a big red arse doing the bolt no more than 10m away. Its a stag but i dont see the head gear at all, i have a look around for him but hes gone burger im now hoping he has been about for a bit and has graced me with his presence on my cam.
    Take a look.





    Had lots of other pics of different deer as well so it was a good spot for camera action.

    Cheers
    Mal

    Good stags in the area Mal, worth a visit in the roar for sure
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    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
