There ya go mate.
Great report, Sounds like a great spot to fill the freezer.

To display your pics you need to copy and paste the BB CODE into the story from the open picture. Look at bottom left of picture for selection box with embed codes on it. Looks like you have copied the address bar. Wink

the hind you hit MAY have been looking for her yearling who had piled up in thick stuff after collecting your first shot????? its a mongrel trying to find them in the crappy ferns,keep encouraging the dog when you do get an animal and a few choice titbits of fresh venni while you cut it up will have dog keen to find the next one for you...same with your chammy...make it dogs "job" to lead you to it and the rewards will follow. great writeup,sounds like a great area to keep hush about.

Thatís a good point but Iím fairly sure it was a different animal.. I had a real good look for the first deer the next day but I think I mustíve hit the big log it ran behind which sounded like a hit.. yeah Iím sure with time sheíll get the right idea!

Yeah I think she's got potential and even if not she was bloody well behaved and a pleasure to have around. Never strayed from around the hut and heeled perfectly the whole time. Did surprisingly well climbing up creeks etc too despite only having little legs! Only issue was I need a bigger sleeping bag because it didn't fit both of us very well  Grin

I've got one about the same age but he's a dog. Got to keep an eye on him the whole time. He goes by the old Beagle adage "nose on, ears off"!

Enjoyed that - nice photos too.

What's the story with a dog in the bush these days, see a lot of guys hunting with them - have the rules changed ?

I think I just got lucky  Grin maybe being a bitch sheís a bit less confident and happy to stay by my side? I took her crate but didnít need to use it once. Even when we were at the hut she never strayed far which surprised me
