    lesson on the year

    lesson of the year....dont go 200 miles to your stalking lease and forget your bins! I did! it was a right ball ache!! Although I did manage to stalk two stags to within 40 yards so if they had been in season then job would have been a good un!

    I think we have all been there.

    I learned a new lesson yesterday. When shooting the .375H&H, wear more than just a T-Shirt¨!

    Also helps to have the correct rifle bolt!!!

    On separate occasions I have forgotten:

    Binos - agreed, very annoying. Now keep a backup pair in the truck!
    Sticks - can improvise so not a total disaster
    Magazine - could only load one shot at a time. Not a show stopper and actually did get a buck AND managed to reload with another round held between my fingers
    Footwear - Muddy feet but the show must go on

    Not forgotten bolt, ammo or rifle.... YET!

    yeh I feel your pain, my first zeroing shot with my first .375 h&h was 300 gr mid load while in my fleece. That really thumped.... Used the slip as a recoil pad after that and made a new batch of rounds with quite a reduced charge I might add.

    On the op I keep spare bins in the car at ALL times now!

    ps:

    took the wrong rifle red stalking once, had both rifles out in slips from the night before and put the wrong one back in the cabinet in it's slip. Wouldn't have minded but had the wrong ammo too and on a Sunday so couldn't even buy bullets to try for roe..... genius

    I tried to get you a pair of old Opticrons Mo, they would have been better than nothing but he was away in the caravan unfortunately.

    Unlucky with the stags.

    At least you remembered bullets unlike me.
