    Where the spikers' live...

    Brian I had a big boys' sleep over last weekend and had a bit of fun.

    300 yards was as close as we could get because of a difficult wind. I got a couple with the .243 and then Brian got one at 350 with his 30.06.

    No need for too many words.

    Where we lived.


    A couple of them. Brian with the one he shot.




    Head hunters...


    Meat hunters...



    Tally hunters...


    A 243 Interbond. 320 yds, off side shoulder joint.


    A dog.

    243. What a useless option

    Well done @Tahr.
    Brian looks very pleased with himself.
    Did you give him a bone?
