hey there guys just wondering what is the deal with kamate.
he sent me an email a while ago bout maybe catching up for a shot sometime in the future seeing he's posted in albury and i live in melb/geelong. i wrote back and he never replied and i think it was about 6 weeks or so ago. seeing he is in the army is he busy for ages then has time off or whats the go?
where you at kamate?
just wodnering cos it seems he ahsnt posted here in as long also.
p.s. went out shooting last night with a mate on his property and got a hare, saw two foxes, a few rabbits and a rat. foxes were too far away and i didnt wanna shoot the rabbits cos i didnt wanna scare the foxes off! 100 before we got home i decided to shoot the hare for my dog.
over at a mates place on dark tonight. shot 4 rabbits with 6 shots from a little sniping post i like. hadnt fired a shot for about 15 mins and then i saw this weird looking stick waving round in the air with what looked like a hankie on the end. took me about 30 secs or so to realise it was a fox frolicking and stretchin on a dirt mound. he was about 120m or so away in the creek gully i was in. he was on the other side and i decided to get a bit closer before i loosed off a shot. got to bank and was about 100m away and i decided to fire when he starting trotting towards a rabbit carcass (one i had shot), missed, and he hightailed and so did a fox that was hiding in the bushes just under him! i threw (not really) the gun over the fence and jumped it too to run down the creek and i sprinted along the creek in the direction he took off in. i stopped about 200m along the creek still on the opposite side when i saw him meandering along just taking his time. i chambered another round and followed him in the scope but figured i could get a better one if i cut him off further up seeing he was happy to keep on trotting through the gauze.
i set up and nice post with a good rest and waited, the shot wold be about 90m or so with a stirdy rest, no worries! along he came a few minutes later and disappeared behind a big boxthorn and... didnt come out. i thought he might have somehow so i walked further along the creek looking for him but no fox! never found his mate either. i walked up and back a few times before it was dark but no more foxies!
just thought id let ya know. i was supposed to be at work today too cos i ahve a 20,000word assignment due on fri, but instead of working i went hunting
! my bad.
cheers and happy hunting,
