    Are you sure that's not an ear tag with a hook in it @Dundee?

    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

    @Gapped axe. Shot over to Te Wairoa. Never caught a fish here. Was keen to break that run. Funny fishing it alone. Feeling like it was out of season. No fish harmed. Few up in the trap showing spawning colours.

    Your truck was on the side of the road between Rangiuru Bay and The Landing. Iím guessing that then is going to be close to your home? I think I helped build a home not far from there. The neighbour when we were there bought their section for something crazy like 10 pounds.

    Motiti was good, possibly my best.

    Pleasant but not productive. Finals quit after losing my expensive new fly in a tree.
