    Went for a wander on Saturday with a mate. Left home at 3:30am to arrive at the start of the walk just after 5am. Spent the day wandering around looking for animals. Saw plenty of goats so we shot some of these, my mate took some back straps of the younger ones. Two weeks before we were in the same area and saw a few pigs, my mate missed a good boar of around 120lbs. So one the way home my mate thought I was pulling his leg when I said his pig was back. Had to point out that there was a black animal in the clearing, it was showing it's spine facing up hill. This also happened to be the same spot from two weeks ago. We lay down and got a steady rest when the animal turned it's head, bloody hell that's not a pig but a chamois. I asked my mate if he wanted to take it, he replied ' no I want you to take it' so I did. Took a wee while to get across the valley being careful to avoid all the earth quake slips. A nice young buck of 8.5inchs and a nice consolation prize as we were hoping to find the pigs again and possibly a deer. Lot's of sign of both.Name:  20180811_150518.jpg

    Nice.
    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

    Not my first. Shot and eaten a few now. I've never eaten a bad one. Don't quite understand why people think it's crap. A pissed up, sex crazed stag tastes worse than chamois.

    Ive never tried Chamois meat so cannot compare, but thats not saying much ;-)

    Good work on the hunt and thanks for sharing it, the forum needs all the hunt reports it can get over winter, shes a bit quiet.
