Man, I remember so many houses out in the Australian country-side just like the one in the second pic Andy. That's a great memory! It looks like a great trip for tucker too.

.......damn you are onto me..... I guess next time you visit you may have to take a nasty tumble down the garden stairs and land unconscious and face down in the pond....

Thanks all, work has been a real bitch the past few months and when my mate called and said we should do this I grabbed it with both hands !!!

Looks like a lot of fun. Thanks for sharing. I wish I had that kind of access to hunting.

Bambi (one of four does over the weekend)...



Bambi was a male. Bambi sounds like a girl's name and might be used quite often by strippers and hookers, but Bambi was a male in the original story.

Good job on everything else mate! Looks as if a great time was had by all.

Cheers!
Jarhead
