    The year gets better...

    Last night.

    My mate Brian went off stalking a velvety we had seen earlier and I carried on hunting (Brian got the stag @ 260 yds with his 6.5-06).

    Toward evening I spotted a hind and yearling and got opposite them at 323 yards. Wathced them for a while and then took the yearling ( a little knobby). Middle of the shoulder hit with the 300saum and first kill with the 168 grn long Range Accubonds. Very impressed - good exit and blood train.

    Steep little carry back out but it keeps me young.

    The deer was by the top tree and ended up down by the creek. Steeper than it looks.

    You can see the blood splatter here on the tree as it bowled down.

    Here she is. A fairly simple find for her.

    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

    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    Good shooting.
    Did you have much trouble getting the accubonds to shoot well?
