Ah Sunday Morning !!!!! Day of Rest !!!!! Not for the Damned Goats round here it wasn't !!!!Evil%20Smile I got a call last night to tell me that there were Goats happily feeding in one of our Paddocks in low country ! So it was up just before dawn & then up around their only real escape route! I took the Long Branch with me & a box of the 180 gn Factory loads (PMC)that had come with the rifle . I figure I've got 200rnds to get rid of ,so why not ! I managed to re lease  7 goats from their Earthly burdens in a very short amount of time!  I could of continued the hunt, But !!!!! For the fact I have a bad case of Shingles round my Left hand side of my Torso & I'm not feeling the best !

I'll have you know Mr Sugden .I went to the Doc's on Friday when I got back from Roxby  top have these damned Shingles seen to as their infected (home cure that went wrong ) & he informed me I have the Body of a 18yr old !!!!! In the next breath he informed me to give it back as I was giving it wrinkles ShockedCry! Your quite right though ,I've got to start living my age not my shoe size !

I can see dave on a modified 4*4 gopher with the orange flag, with a spotlight rig set up and a rifle in a scabbard Thumbs%20Up
But the winters coming,

And the snow will cover tracks,

And I'll be watching,

Because I'm hunting you

We have these little Minni trucks being sold around here for around $3000.00  a peice .Not street leagal but has a dump bed on it with all 3 sides folding down like a truck tail gait and you can get them in 4 wheel dive with AC and Heat. they are importing them from Japan or China.
Dave the one with 4 wheel drive and AC and Heat would be great for your place. from what I have taken from your postings over the years, You have a lot of area to cover. You could put about 6 or 7 Goats in the bed of one of them little trucks.
If I had more usable land I would get me one. I should get one just to drive down to the Naighbors house on. But ClayMore face would call the cops on me .
A good pair of hip wadders is what I usually need to get around on the back of my property. But that is getting hard to do for me since My Knees are starting to give out.  I messed my left knee up in the Army . Opened my eyes up one day and was looking at the bottom of a boot and didnt realize that it was my foot till I got up to run and I whent right back down . you talk about some pain....

I could make a fine canoe out of seven goats and still have enough to make a bodhran (old war drum).

Actually a quad will probably be ideal for the ground you have to cover mate.

Quite a few blokes are supposed to be using them up in the territory as hunting rigs.
