    Winter Wet

    Wet night tonight. Not very pleasant for hunting.

    Took the dog an age to find this. Had fallen down a water fall, and then I had to drag it down to a flat spot in the creek to deal with it. 300saum.

    Good on you @Tahr for getting out there. Hard yards in weather like that.

    She doesn't seem to get cold, but I seem to be feeling the cold more with each successive winter.

    It was quite a clean shot but the deer was on a steep slope and disappeared as it rolled through the trees. It was a shitty creek. Tilly knew it was somewhere and was winding but just couldn't zero onto it because it was in a very steep gutter. She got onto it when I crossed the creek and climbed a bit and she must have got a good whiff of it. She has slept all day

    good to hear it Mate..... water can be a right mongrel on the scenting abilities.... Meg sheds water like no dog weve ever seen...she can go for a swim (cant keep her out of lake) and 5 mins later is dry again. the poor old GspXs we had previously hated the cold and shivered like mad at times.

    Home tonight at midnight from a hunt. At least it wasn't raining.

    Shot this bloke and rolled him a hundred yards down out of the scrub to deal with him. Saved me 100 yards of carry out. 270wsm & 127 grn LRX, 250 yards high shoulder shot & flattened it.
