    A first timer

    Had a old friend of mine that I haven't seen for a few years came to Scotland, we were both attending a Dinner I had asked him if he would or if he could find the time i would get him out stalking the idea was set in his head ,he has never fired a full bore hunting rifle before, i got him out for a shot or two behind the house sorted out the need to know bits IE targets backstops watch and shoot stuff ,loaded up the weapons and allowed him to have a bit of fun .

    We got out at home could only find Does and Kids ,trip to Argyll required a blind man could shoot deer up there, got up there a lunch time set up rain came on lol such fun left the vehicle ("yes" Chris I'll cut the trees in the rides pain they are ) ,walked down the rides into a open area stood for a few minutes a group of Deer walked around the corner 12 Hinds and 1 Stag , I had made it clear in the practice where to aim etc he lifted the rifle on to the sticks Ruger .243 stutzen no mod ,the deer moved closer to us I told him there quite happy to fire when he was happy , he removed the safety catch squeezed the trigger and the stag, staggered and dropped to shot, his first word were f##k me I'm shaking like a leaf, my heart is hammering ,congratulations passed and the words thats good you'll need a good strong heart beat to drag this over the heather ,the rest is in the picture nice cull stag and a excellent day had by all he's hooked .

    Always Paul,

    First rule, is to think where it is.

    Second rule, what time of day is it.

    Third rule, is can i get it out myself.


    If you cannot forefill these three rules dont pull ther trigger.

    Always live by the rules .

    Danny will back that up ,he hasnt been back since

    Nice one Bob. Was planning to have a run round on Saturday. Give you a bell tomorrow.
    "Imagine you're a deer. You're prancing along, you get thirsty, you spot a little brook, you put your little deer lips down to the cool clear water... BAM! A f**kin bullet rips off part of your head! Your brains are laying on the ground in little bloody pieces! Now I ask ya. Would you give a f**k what kind of pants the son of a bitch who shot you was wearing?"
