    We went chasing Wallaby's for the day on Friday and I won again........everyone else had given up on a long shot after several rounds...but not one to give up as the little bugger was sitting, I nailed him...............on the 29th round (good thing its only $10 a box)
    My average got slightly better after that...............just :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    Sorry for the lack of pics but I blame Tony :mrgreen:

    My Daughter wants to go fishing (she is 8). It has been suggested I take her to one of the places that guarantee a catch first time out, Which I think is a good idea. Has anyone else tried this? I think She would love a day on the river fishing and having a BBQ but I dont want her to get board if the fish are not biting.
    Any advice would be great

    Went and spent the day hunting and fishing with Gauldy, Konrad Lyn and Cody. It was an awesome day with 5 Tahr shot but no fish, This was the big fella I dropped at 207m on the range finder. He was a very big boy

    Ya cheeky bugger.......we did some target shooting with the range finder and the 270 magnum is deadly from 100m to 500m we couldn't get a target out to 800m to try, Konrads range finder is awesome as we were always way off trying to guess distance. When we first spotted the bull he was over 400m and I would have said 200.
    I feel sorry for Gouldy as he had a bigger walk than me!!
