    I am feeling it up here Dundee. Light the bloody fire man.
    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

    We used to hunt both sides of the range many years ago
    The Tamaki was easy access to plenty of side creeks - a bit of a climb and some good slips to glass - Laws Rd was also productive
    When the new road went up Takapari Ridge - we changed our focus to Diggers and Centre Creek - there were plenty of deer in Diggers and the leatherleaf was so open you could walk through it
    The new road produced plenty of easy deer - the fresh dirt after the dozer - was like a cattle yard

    New road - up on the main ridge above Centre Creek - slightly north of the road junction


    Isnít it fun hunting in the snow - Takapari - nah - I reckon itís a mugs game - should have stayed in bed - much warmer places to be


    Up on the main ridge - a few years later on a nicer day
