    Today's Effort

    Had the alarm set for 4am this morn but was to tired so got up about 7. Some wanker had broken into 2 of the cars parked in the carpark with more broken glass on the other side of the carpark, so 3 or 4 cars broken into, bastards!!!
    Started hunting about 9ish, dog indicated off the track about 30 mins in, so snuck down and came across 2 different deer, no luck though. About midday we were sneaking along and spooked a deer, we stayed still and it circled around to figure us out, saw it sneaking in the open, pole-axed it with a neck shot at about 40 yards. Cut em up and started cruising back. Spooked a small fawn about 5 metres away from us on the way back, it tore off from under a crown fern, the dog raced forward so quickly got her back in, then watched it run off. Will have to keep an eye on her next time. Was cool to see the fawn though.

    The pics:
    Deer was standing under the arrow,

    Great work there Luke. I don't have a dog but I'll be sure to look under any arrows I see like that when I next head bush.

    Good work Luke. That young fawn may be the stag you get in a few years time.
    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
