Being an Aussie, one of my duty as a citizen is Jury duty.
So I am supposed to present myself to the office of the sheriff last week,
because of that, I have to decline a friend's invitation for a varminting weekend.
Woulndt you know, they postpone my jury duty show up day till 1st Feb.

Luckily the invites still on..
So, here I am waiting for my mate to pick me up for the hunting trip,
after frantically packing up the necessity.
I'll be taking along my 300 Whisper (yes I remember the bolt!) and 45-70.

Hopefully I can get some nice gory picture to show you guys, especially the 300 whisper shot result.

Wish me luck! Its going to be real HOT in the bush , would be about 43 celcius!!

Here is a shot of the typical wound created by 300 whisper.

the bullet travel as pointed by the knife.

The bullet entry is near the neck, just below of the back bone between the rib,
the exit is just clearing the rack just before the abdominal cavity.

The entry point is a tiny .300 cal. the exit point is a huge sideways knife stab type wound.

Just after shot, the goat staggered a tad, then resume feeding, and within 10 seconds toppled sideways and died.

Apology for only posting one photo, I forgot my camera and this is the only photo my mate took.
A few more photos should come as soon as the other mate send me the pic.

Well done Gelan...you and the BLOOMPH done a damn fine job mate. At least you are able to get out...no chance of that happening up here for a couple of months...ground is just too wet and boggy.

Cheers, Vince

Vince mate, if you got time to visit us in NSW, we could arrange for an outing too.
I got a NOE 311284 214Gr. RN HP mold coming next month (if NOE is on schedule) for my Whisper.
I would be raring to go and try this one out.

Slim, bushy, I'll post more as soon as I got the pics from my mate.
He is late Mad he is inundated with work since we came back.

In the modern day world of digital photography, its only a click to send you the picture.

I guess a headshot with a 45/70 would be pretty terminal for anything. great to hear your loads are working out for you.
