    Thanks to vc I'm a virgin no longer!

    Hey guys and girls

    Just wanted to fill you in on the hunt that vc took me on today!

    First of all big props to vc for taking the time and patience to take me to one of his local haunts and showing me the ropes. Great guy and a heart of gold.

    So the trip began with the long haul from ashvegas to nelson. Not to drag it out but it's freakin boring by yourself!

    Arrived to find vc making us breakfast for up the hill and a beer thrust into hand. Some bullshit was talked then into bed at midnight for the 2 o'clock start. (I might have over slept my alarm and had vc rocking my truck and banging on the window asking if I wanted coffee lol)

    Another long drive to spot x interrupted by my auto gearbox having a hissy fit (ahh she'll be right and on we go) and out onto the hill.

    Now this is the point vc tells me it takes 2hrs and isn't as steep as it looks. (He lied twice) first 40 mins was not too bad then the steep stuff started, up up and more up by an hour and a half I was buggered but the patient guy he is just waited and waited for me religiously. The next two hours were a blur of pain and hill but after another upward slog and some harsh sildling I was ready to call it quits.

    Vc talked me out of that pretty quickly (thank god) cause 20 minutes later he had me belly crawling towards a deer.

    We lined up our shots and I finally let the lead fly, hitting it in the neck at 100 yards the deer buckled but got up and ran so vc followed it up with a second shot from his cannon for security.

    Deer down and a very happy mark!!!!

    I was then taken through the basics of gutting and dismemberment. Very good instruction I might add. Then hind quarters onto the shoulders and the rest in vc's pack (admission of guilt I left my pack in ash so his was very heavy, whoops) and we were away.

    Now if going up was bad coming down was just as bad lol.

    A slow trip out with plenty of stops and we arrived back at the truck with less than absolutely nothing in the tank.

    Back to vc's for a beer and a rest!!!! (I can't move lol)

    Great mission and I can't thank cam enough for his generosity.














    I love this shit on my phone

    Brilliant! Solid effort. Vietnamcam sounds like a generous bugger.

    Were you aiming for its neck?

    Cheers.

    Yep had to be a neck shot. Bedded down in the tussok in the fog could only see head neck.
    Had to wait for waves of fog for clearish shot.
    Two hinds with him trotted off 200 odd extra yards and stood on ridge barking at us for at least 5 min before buggering off.
    Half a deer each was plenty to carry from there

    Thread title could be taken in all sorts of ways!

    Nice going and onya VC for showing new hunters the ropes. Big walk up hills always kills you a bit when you're not used to it!

    Excellent SH fresh air in your nostrils and blood on your hands. What more could a keen hunter want? VC you are a top bloke by any man's measure. It will be my distinct pleasure to meet you one day.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    Excellent work. Grub and drink tastes extra good when you're really earned it.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!
