Thread: Bale String Blaser !!

  1. #1

    Bale String Blaser !!

    I was kindly invited to stalk the ground of a member of this site, he can admit to being the inviter if he so desires later on.
    I turned up at some beautiful ground, the scenery was fantastic so I was happy before we even started.
    Started to get prepared for an enjoyable stalk when I suddenly realised that I had forgotten to bring something after all !
    I say 'after all' because just lately I have forgotten my torch, my milk for the coffee, the sticks and even my binos on one occassion, but this time I loaded up then went back in the house sat down and had a cup of tea and went through my list of requirement s and was convinced that I had everything and was feeling quite pleased with myself on the way to the Stalking ground.
    However, when I took my rifle from it's case I realised I had not packed my rifle sling :-(
    Oh dear, what to do.
    As it happens my 'Guillie' offered to lend me one of his but the studs didn't fit because his had Uncle Mikes swivels and I had a Blaser rifle with European studs, much too delicate for chunkey US swivels !!
    So with the initiative of a top class boy scout a bit of bale string was threaded through the studs and a strap from one of my 'Guillies' pack the day was saved :-)
    When I was feeling pleased with myself and turned ready for a look of admiration from my 'Guillie' all I got was the quick glimpse of his camera/phone disappearing behind his back !
    So, my fellow SD site members, I felt obliged to get this in before the picture turns up of a Blaser owner using string for his sling followed by suspected holes in my trousers, worn out boots and a begging post for donations as I'd sold everything else to support my Blaser lifestyle !!
    Thanks to my 'Guillie' we had a wonderful afternoon and evening, saw some nice animals, both male and female but they are still there for next time, when perhaps, I'll have a proper rifle sling to match the rifle

    Damn you stole my thunder! I was all ready to post the "Blaser owner can't afford a sling (or boots )" thread!

    Too bad that buck did a disappearing act on us in the last few yards of our approach... still wondering if he fell down a large hidden hole! Ah well.... next time...

    Love it. I've had to do the very same before using a issue rifle sling and some baling twine! Must say I think it suits the blaser though.

    As every farmer knows... Anything can be fixed with baling twine, even Blasers!
