    I don't have a picture but I remember going to Ellesmere to set up for gooses. We had to push 300 gooes off the lake edge to set up and there were so many gooses on the lake they had nowhere to go so they just circled us honking in that way that gooses do and as soon as we left they went streight into the spot. For the morning shoot we watched mob after mob bounce from edge to edge of the lake getting shot each time. Sometimes you would go out there and think it was going to rain cos there were clouds but it was just big mobs of gooses in the air.

    This was the good old days when Gooses were still a gamebird - 2010.

    no pics: back in the good old days, woodhill state forest (govt controlled) started off on possums but graduated. every kid had a air gun/22 and knew how to shoot.
    you could get into playground scraps and know the guy you punched would never even consider a firearm to get back at you (though in most cases i was the one getting the crap being out of)

    That is 640 fillets VC.
    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

    Was searching online for something unrelated, and found a photo of my paternal great grandfathers wedding at Reefton:



    Incidentally, he bears the same same name as his father, seated to his right, which happens to be my name also
