    A tip to stop bridges being washed away.

    Dont dig them in, only anchor one corner to the bank so the bridge will wash to the side. Only do able with a moveable sized bridge though.

    On a rough shoot today , rained whilst we had our normal fry up breakfast in the local cabin, rained whilst we got on our wet gear (my nomad gear still wet from friday's stalking trip) rained all morning, raining while we crossed the slightly swollen stream just after dinner to shoot the afternoon drives !! Finished earlier than normal as it was still raining !! Upon reaching the earlier slightly swollen stream we found it was now a serious torrent of very cold dirty looking water, noramlly 2" deep it was now 2' Not wanting to risk the dogs we picked them up and carried them over(we were inside a deer fenced compound and the swing gate was only yards away) Not had my boots filled to the tops for years LOL Guess what ? it was raining all the way home and it still is now. I give up....... even if it is a nice day tomorrow the deer deserve a day off from me chasing them about as they are in it 24/7
