    It was Brian who found my glasses by the tree I crashed into that arrested my fall. After a brief look for them I was off trying to find the deer I had shot before I fell. Never found it.

    Shows how much more patience Brian has than me. The impetuous need a mate like him.

    @Tahr hope the hand & the rest of the war wounds are all well on the road to mending now,how did Tilly go with her OP & diagnosis?

    That is a fantastic photo Craig took of you glassing over looking the river valley ,worthy of a spot on the wall, in the other photo's of that hunt what is the Skinning style knife on the hinds rump & how do you rate it ? I am like you & live for hunting mainly because it is a excuse to be in the outdoors
    but also you can be so involved in everything from experimenting & building the rifle to suit your needs right down to developing the best load /bullet choice etc ,to scope/glass ware used ,footwear & clothing & l harking back to my Shearing ,professional hunting days am obsessed with good blades & keeping them sharp for the job at hand .This year l am looking at making up lost time for the lock downs etc & will be replenishing my mat skins so am in the market for a excuse to buy a good Skinner .

    That knife is a Bark River. The model is Wolf River - they haven't made that model for about 10 years although I understand that a similar run will be done again this year. I will PM you when I find out about the new run. The steel in mine is CPM s35vn. Its an outstanding knife.

    My fingers are about half mended and the aches in my body have about half subsided. I will come right.

    @Tahr how did Tilly go with her Op? We are looking at getting another dog to keep our Lab company in her final years & take over hunting duties & companion for the wife.I showed her a pic of Tilly ages ago & she fell in love with her & what a character she is with some of the looks she gives in the photo's, so l am under strict orders to make sure l show her any news pics of Tilly you post .

    Thanks for the info on the knife ,l do not have a Bark River in the collection so that info will be appreciated,just a thought when l was dirt bike racing after a fall l always found a good deep tissue massage helped,especially by someone who knew their stuff.I would always just plainly state why l needed a massage & did they have experience dealing with it ( l raced OS as well,so often had to do ring around while travelling & most appreciated being informed of reason & would recommend others more experienced if they were not use to dealing with it ),it may help the mending/recovery.Give Tilly a pat from us

    @bunji
    Tilly is fine. 2 tumours removed from her udder/breast. She has had her recovery period and her stitches are out. She's chomping at the bit to get out of the back yard. In a week I have a few days on the wallaby so she can come and it can be her get fit regime although I will take It gently with her (and me). This weekend will be her first outing - we are going to the range to re-check the zero on the previously checked wallaby guns.
