    Interesting - I've never made it as far as the mine before.
    There is a good area for deer in the next catchment, if you're that way inclined

    Well done the Dundee exploration team.

    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

    There was another hunter heading in he showed us on the map where he was heading so we gave that area a miss.
    We dropped Possum Trapper off as he and a few mates a staying in the area for a few days.

    Apparently the magazine was used in WW2 to store ammunition.

    Long way to run when your ACK ACK gun was empty and the Japs were steaming ashore.
