    Morning stalk

    Hay guys just a quick report.

    I went into a local road end for a morning hunt. I had the idea of hunting the northan side and sidle along on what should be a mint spot.



    Its not to far away from the farmland and up from a nice stream have spooked a few along it but today it was a dud.

    It was sunny and warm with quite a lot of growth but no sign. Wtf no shit only few prints couldnt work it out.

    So I gave up and crossed the ridge and 2 steps into the bush and I spooked two and they crashed off but not to far away.

    I went after then after a couple of minutes


    Spotted them and was moving in for a shot and the bloody trees wouldnt allow a kill shot then I felt the wind on my neck and they crashed off and keep going and going and going

    Ended up bumping into one other but didnt get a look just heard it crashing away.

    Was a great hunt and bush stalking still sux balls

    Good day out 199P
    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
