    Improving with every hunt.

    Here is a couple of pics from hunts i have done since March, ive been hunting Sid as much as i can and with every hunt i have seen him go forward leaps and bounds with his trade.
    March hunt, whilst he didnt scent the deer for us he did track him down for us once on the deck, it was a long shot on 2 stags in some scrub and it would of taken a long time to find them with out him.

    A Fallow from last Sunday, Sid was about 20 to 30 meters in front of me on a track and when he popped over the edge for a second or two and then came quikly back i thought something was up, i looked over the same spot as Sid and spy two Fallow ghosting through the trees about 50m away. Result.

    Then today, we again move down a track and Sid starts winding really hard down the edge of the track, this time he doesnt do the stalk as my mate goes into the scrub to find the prey, it didnt take long before the young boar was on the ground with a 7mm pill lodged in his brain.

    All of the animals above were taken by a mate not me for one reason or another, either its his turn to shoot or i have missed my target and he hit his.

    So as it shows Sid is getting better and better at his trade and im loving hunting with him more and more every hunt.

    Cheers
    Mal

    Great stuff. They are a lot of work and frustration but when they come thru for you it is all worth it.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
