    VIDEO: Long Range Red Deer Meat Hunt

    Here's a little bit of footage I've just finished putting together from our hunting trip last weekend.

    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

    Yeah i thought it was a hard case too, one of the young fellas was heading home a day eariler than the rest of us, we had run out of room in the meat safe so loaded 4 reds, a pig and 2 goats for dog tucker into his hairdressor wagon to take home and put in the chiller, we soon refilled the empty space ;-)

    The second deer, the hind shot at 744 yards by Lou had a visible udder and had a new fawn. I wouldn't have shot her myself

    Yes in hindsight we messed up, we watched it for a little while and didnt think it had a fawn.

    Best thing is look for a suckled udder. I could see it in the less than clear footage. I could also see from the 'form' of the animal that it was an adult hind not a yearling. 95% + of adult hinds will have a dependent fawn now.

    It’s easy to see lots of things on the zoomed video playing on a phone, not so easy through binos or a scope. Definitely not easy through the camera even at full zoom.
    Lou will be stoked with his gunsmithing I guess his lathe runs true
    Cool vid

    Yes exactly right, even with 20x scope at that range these details are not obvious to the untrained eye.

    Even when viewing the little screen of the camera when zoomed up 100x or even 200x due to the low resolution of the camera screen details are not that obvious.

    Different story when you have the benefit of watching on a HD screen or large computer or tv screen.

    We are also not deer experts, we were however 100% positive that it was made out of meat, and upon cutting it up we were correct.
