    Ruahine Armed Tramp

    Off to the hills with @falconhell @geezejonesy and @possumtrapper.

    @falconhell and I headed up this hill behind the truck it was bloody hot @geezejonesy and @possumtrapper head off up the Tamaki Stream.

    Falconhell and I sidled this hill losing sweat from the ales we soaked up last night.Headed of track with sign plentiful.

    The vines and onga were getting thicker when we decided to head back down, falconhell caught his elbow on some that tickled him up a bit.Got back down into some easier terrain but the noise from the dry leaf litter was quite loud.

    Back at the picnic area we took shelter from that big yellow ball in the sky and talked about our armed tramp,which way we should of gone and waited for @geezejonesy and PT to arrive.

    We weren't talking quietly and having a few laughs.

    We heard one shot earlier while we were near the tops so assuming @geezejonesy and PT were late because of success.

    When we heard the sound of a rock move below us so thought yep its them,but no there was silence so we armed ourselves again falconhell went one way I went the other when we met there was that familar sound of a deer crashing through the bush. Bugger not to be this time. The smell was strong it must of been drinking in the river.

    Back at the truck PT @geezejonesy arrive with no luck either so after 2hour armed tramp and none of us having fired a shot it was off to MacDonalds for brunch shouted by @geezejonesy.

    Thanks fullas we had a great weekend out there doing it.

    Unsure but the other way would of been easier if Falconhell and I hadn't gone in where we did.

    Typical huh, today, just after I had given up with the hunting and started crashing through the bush a mob of bedded down fallow decided to leap to their feet and make more noise than I did. They didn't look back and I was left feeling quite stupid.

    Ha Ha @geezejonesy can't tag @popshot and it seems I tagged a member called possum instead of @possum trapper.
