First one for my Gringa Curve...

#1 Post by blu-dog » Thu Oct 02, 2014 2:30 pm

Took this one in July in a local cane field.

The stalk invovled a 20m belly-crawl through a run off drain (dry thankfully) and a sneaky creep aongside the full grown cane as the hare sat broadside.

Got into about 15m and a vic ash shaft tipped with 160 grain ribtek had him down in about 20m. Being fairly low on the food chain and hunting them in the headlands between cane blocks always makes for a challenging, and more often than not, frustrating hunt. But is always good to see onr hit the deck!

Geeez, I hope there all that quiet. It's only a lazy 3000km drive. I'll look you up in a year or so.

Top stuff mate!
That must have been very satisfying.
Politics is a game played by dishonest people to gain an unfair advantage!

Never under estimate the strength of a cornered coward.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.
