    Sometimes

    You get an easy one...
    Having finished my annualised hours at work a couple of weeks ago and have a lazy week at home it was time to head up to Blenheim to see Mum for a week.
    Anyhow today I decided to go for a wander and not 10min from the hilux I round a corner in the creek look up and see a stag cruising along. So action was taken! I knelt down taking my pack off sorting a rest in front of me whip the scope cover off get a rest load,line up on the front of his neck as he's facing me at this stage looking to his left and proceed to drop him like a sack of spuds with an 87gr hpbt. Man that was too easy I thought. I still get amazed at how a big animal can drop so fast with a shit like that,it always impresses me.
    Now he's down I've got time to range the distance lol 166yrds. Apon getting up to him there's still a wee bit of movement so another to the back of the head sorts that out.

    After a few photos it was on with the butchering which I took my time with taking all the wheels and back steaks plus eye fillets. Since it wasn't far to the hilux I left the leg bones in which in hind sight I should have boned them out their as I got fuck all in my pack after I squeezed both back legs in lol so ended up carrying the shoulder in each hand.
    Back to the hilux by 11:20 and back to mums by 12:40 then I proceeded to take her fridge over.

    Well done Dreamer. you gotta love the easy ones
    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
