Dammit! Even I would have been confident in a 'squeeze' of the trigger............compared to your 'average' range of shots!
Mind you, what would the retrieve have been like - I mean thats when the hard work starts so gotta be worked into the 'equation'!

Nice one John , a great looking beast , as I said I'm busy as feck doing my house ,

I'm booked in for some stalking the weekend after I get back , can't feckin wait me old mucker ,

You keep um coming , he looks tasty and looks like he's enjoying the lower temps , good on him ,

You'd still get a sweat on( as you said ) hauling him out

Your posts keep me sane in times of being a dad n sorting shi8e out, to keep the tribe happy
