    Had another afternoon out today, mint day and good result.

    Also bumped a sambar at one point, didnt get a look at him but then saw his print, must have been a big boy passed on his tracks!!

    Went for a quick walk today and picked up a nice rooster, big old bird with 35 bars. But the best part was the pups first retrieved and he brought it right to me, so was stoked with that
