    Taras solo overnight

    Got a mid-week leave pass from the Mrs, so decided to check out a new spot in the Tararuas.

    Dougie was going to join me, but picked up a couple of last-minute shifts at work, so it became a solo trip.

    Set up camp next to the river, had an early dinner, and then went looking for bambi

    HUNTS course has paid off in huge amounts. Once I had reached the intended area, it did not take me long to find sign.

    Glassed the more likely areas, no luck. Once it got a bit darker, I decided to start heading back to camp. On my way, I wanted to have a look thru my scope to see what it looks like in low light. Blow me over, silly spiker trots out 80 yards in front of me Only presented a texas heartshot, so he got to live another day.

    Practised some fire-lighting with damp wood, nice to be out in the boonies

    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

    Absolutely +1. That's were the good quality glass comes in to play too.
    10MRT shooters do it 60 times, in two directions and at two speeds.

    A spiker at 80 yds? You should have stopped it with one in the jacksie ! Send it too the chiller. My motto anyway

    Better luck next time.
