    Productive hunt

    Steve 338 and myself shot away on Friday for a couple of nights. The idea being to score some more meat for BBQ season. Just the condensed version - Basically the weather was crap for hunting deer in. Wind , Wind and more wind blowing from all points of the compass. In saying that we shot a deer each. Spotted, Observed / photographed another 16 odd. Once we had the venison hanging we put in a full day culling out goats. We had a big day which began at 4:30 am and stayed out all day. A fair bit of powder got burnt. I did learn a couple of things on this trip. My little Steve Wheeler custom knife is perfectly adequate for cutting up South Island red deer - no axe needed and once again a Plastic Tikka T3 latte gun with the right load and good glass levels anything at all sorts of ranges From cats at 40 yds to big game at 500 yds. Its the goods

    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 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

    Great hunt fella. Surely there is no one try hard or wanky enough to take an axe to clean a deer in the field. If there is such a person they would be a complete TOOL

    The end result - A photo of Steve's from last nights BBQ - This is venison rump not beef

    And on mine- Good ole venison Patties. Only about 200 to go with a heap of steak to boot
