shot this wee falla(or should I put Fallow?) yesterday,
sure isnt a world beater as only a 3 year old. was out on private land with a few mates for days shooting and had 6 fallow take off from well above us waaaay up a ridge,threw off pack and got steady using frame of pack as a rest and took semi steady shot at range further than I normally would (sighted rifle in day before and have got groups to 1 1/2") google earth and guestimation from aerial photo say 350 yards!!! shot hit and animal staggered then layed down out of sight behind Spaniard bush in tussock. we scooted further up ridge to close gap. got further up ridge and deer got up again, off with pack and tried to line up....plurry sun was directly into scope so took off hat and got young fella to shade front lens of scope with it...hard case trying to get that right as sun was right at wrong angle....anyway got steady and let loose. whack came back and animal rolled down hill..that was at 275yards (much more to my liking)
left young fella sitting on ridge to guide me if needed and went over with Nugget to find animal.
found him no worries and had good look around just incase had fired at 2 animals.
nah just the one so got out knife and took back wheels off then front wheels and back steak attached to skin (done this to last few deer and sure makes life easier) popped them into my new pack along with eye steaks in my beanie and head on outside of pack, wandered 1 km back down hill and carried on with lads to have a go at some wobblies/wallabies Nathan managed one with last round in mag from .270 and his mate Aston snotted hare with my .223..he couldnt quite mange to connect with running wobbly but gave it plurry good go coming VERY VERY closeto connecting c a few times . good day had by all.
photos to show that Radar isnt only one to shoot wee stags for tucker and meat (which is going to my work place on Friday for me to cook up for the lads) SWMBO not a fan of fallow venni so Nathan and I will munch through rest ourselves.

Elvis, which bullet were you using? The 160 round nose - now that would be a shot at 350 yards ... even 275.

Slimjim I will take that on the chin.......
Im a bush hobbit at heart and long range ISNT my thing,
without range finder and printed out pointblank its not ethical either. I set out earlier this year to see if I could get my old rifle to shoot a bit better...reloads that are the same etc etc and have got groups to be consistant 1 1/2" which really means that 350 is at max for me as things stand anyway.
130grn ballistic tip was first and a 130grn Taipan was 2nd. both shoot to same point of impact at 100 and they are both soft enough to use out further..the Taipans in particular.

Another excellent hunt Elvis, thanks for the write up.
I am very envious, my last large game was a few years ago..

processed him tonight. from the 30kg/66lb I carried out ended up with 6kg of steak a bucket of meat to turn into sausages and a couple of bones for dogs to chew on. taking steak to work to cook up on BBQ for workmates on Friday for hot lunch..far too good for mere truck drivers but I want to do it.
did the quality control thing tonight and yip its pretty plurry fine eating.
