    Old man lucked out on chital

    Went hunting with my old man, youngest brother Duncan and a family friend for chital over the holiday break.
    the old man managed to take a nice representative stag, though he passed up on an awesome non-typical 7 point one which he later regretted. I was just as pumped and managed to get it on film which is the first stag I've filmed being taken. Good spotting by me to see him I reckon!
    Great stuff and will look great on the wall for dad.

    Good stuff BH
    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

    So BH is their meat more akin to red than say fallow or more to sambar?
