    Taking the Edge for a bush walk

    Had an early start on Wednesday, with a plan set to take the rifles to work and see if we could get some veni for the X-mas BBQ.

    So I decided to take the Edge for a bush walk

    So loaded up with a pack full of 30 bags of poison, binos, muffs, range finder, jacket, camera, smoko & assorted other shite we head off down the track, after an undisclosed amount of time we end up at a small clearing watching a couple of slips

    With'in 10mins & just starting to have a snack & out comes this young velverty @ 255 yards- winde the NF up to 16 put a bead on the fuckar give it 3" of hold over & BOOMFA first blood for the Terminator

    Blow the poor little bastard off his feet & he "tenderises" himself about 80 yards to the bottom of the slip, Richie ( my work mate ) give's me a big happy bro hand shake & then we fight our way down into the gully




    Ended up she was sighted in slighty high, so the shot had a little to much elevation & ended up just clipping the bottom of its spine & turning it inside out, go the mighty 338

    Rich was keen to carry it out whole ( he's a big unit ) so I did'nt complaine, only fuck up was that Philipo's short cut ended up being a "long farken way round"

    Then I ended up carrying me bang stick & finishing the poison round, did'nt get back to the truck till lunch time





    Conclussion The Terminator was'nt to bad to carry as a 10lb bush gun for nearly 5 hours & at least ya not guna be under powered
    DAF, Spanners, Steve338 and 12 others like this.
    Shoot it, root it & then BBQ it !!!

    Nothing quite like being over gunned & under ranged

    The first Deer with my first Edge was 49 Yards

    Well done Philipo. That is a brilliant first blood.
    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

    Great write up mate! Almost sounded too easy, especially with the pack mule to carry your kill.
    Hunting is not a hobby.....its an addiction
