    over before it began

    looks like my roar will be buggered this year.
    i was competing in the local 3 gun comp on the weekend, i was jogging between stations when my knee went click. i instantly knew i had busted the cartilage.
    long story short, xrays and ortho consult.
    cant straighten the joint and it is quite painful, so barring a sitter walking out in front of me. i will be lucky to pickup a deer this roar.
    i was hoping to use the 577 snyder and or the 50cal flinter this year.
    those that know me will know my disappointment.
    xrays in the morning. see how we go.

    Don't give up so easily.

    Find a Roar spot with wheelchair access

    or

    Get the Helicopter to set you down on a clearing

    And take a Young fit Bugger to do the fetch and carry.

    Cheers

    That is a major bummer GH
    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

    Don't give up greghud, look for alternatives. Maybe quad access somewhere.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    haaha cheers fellas,
    i wont be giving up so to speak, but i know that i will be unable to hunt like i would like to. i do have a long range setup that i wouldnt mind testing out.
    but there is nothing quite like the blood rush as the whole forest shakes from the big pizzled up stag as he lets out a roar and you are only mtrs away from him.
    kinda looses it effect from 356mtrs away.
    dont have a quad but i treat my bighorn like its one. so i can bush bash my way so far. but i find the further you are from humans the more deer you see.
    mite suck up to a couple young silly blokes who i can con into carrying out for me

    To be a Human is to be an Alien, ask the animals, We invade this world and we are killing it, we are destroying the earth and nobody gives a fuck except for the animals

    If it makes you feel any better. I tore my medial ligament in right knee playing cricket yesterday.
    I have NOT enjoyed staying inside today!
