    Dear oh Deer

    Took a photo of this last fire season when I was doing permits at Atiamuri. Poor thing, and it was right beside the main race as well. Farmer reckoned he never saw it, really! I did! What a hell of a way to die.

    What a long suffering death it must have had. What a waste.
    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

    You could understand if it was some out of the way paddock but next to main lane that's bollocks! How could you not see it.

    I came across a young chamois that suffered the same fate. A high country fence that was miles from any track.

    I came across a bloody good stag dead with its head tangled in about 30m of old sheep fence netting once.🙁

    I heard of an old farmer who went the same way - mid 60s and tough as bootleather; he went over a fence and slipped his foot down then rolled over the exact same way with his foot stuck fast between the two wires.
    No cellphone, no pliers to hand
    Died of thirst

    On my own I cross fences like a total nana these days for that precise reason

    A couple of years ago, my hunting mate was on top of a range that "NOBODY" knows about and he bumps into a tramper The tramper was still shaking after cutting a stag free that got his antlers wound up in tussocks. Said the stag looked as if saying "WTF are you, and thanks" before he walked away.

    Coming home late from duck shooting in a thunderstorm got to Dads electric 4 wire fence thought the best thing to do was crawl under
    Shotgun belt hooked the wire zap thought f*#!!! Back up but no the rim of the cartridge's had hooked the wire zap zap zap
    Managed to undo the belt but was feeling rather sick by the time I had it off
    Left me gun and belt there and went back in the morning. Recon a few more minutes and I'd have past out and then would have been toast
    Was a good morning shoot though think a ran out of ammo so didn't have the same problem on the way home.
    Still have the same gun and belt but always make sure that I can reach the buckle.

    My son, like his grandad can just grab a hot wire and tell ya how grunty it is.
    Freaks me out.
    I got a good belt off one shifting some cows, cursed and swore a bit.

    My boy wanders over to see what the fuss was about, grabs the wire in his fist and calls me a sook as it's not that grunty

    I hate the things.
