    Smile What are the odds!

    I went for a hunt today in a well used and abused local spot with the idea of seeing a deer or pig and to check a mates trail cameras, all was going to plan until we arrive at the location of the first camera, can anyone see the problem.


    No!!, What about now!



    Yep with all of the shit weather we have had this last week, a tree, 1 tree out of 100s of 1000s fell on his camera, i ask you what are the odds of this happening?

    The hunt went well though, no animals taken only one seen but we found some great pig and deer sign in some new areas of the forest and the cameras did show some good sign of several different reds in the area.
    Might have another explore next weekend.

    Oh and on the off chance that the wanker that cut the stock fence around the forestry is a member of this site, pull ya f**ken head in, there was no need to do that it doesn't help the deer get into the easy spots they can jump and the pigs just push through, keep it up and it will be another spot lost for people to enjoy because you've got no brains.

    Cheers

    The odds are certainly long. Pricks that cut fences should be wrapped in barbed wire and rolled down the nearest hill.

    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

    Yes but now the only un answered question is, did the tree make a sound when it feel down as no one was there to hear it?
