Was mowing the lawn yesterday on the farm, and only about 30-40 feet from my front door, i found a diamond back rattle snake. It made its presence known to me. Well i have 13 goats, 2 donkeys, a dog, and some chicks, not to mention my 1 year old is newly walking and I take her for walks outside. Never seen one of these before here, and hope not to again. I decided i wouldn't take any chances, so here are the results

That is the only thing that keeps me awake at night ... We have nothing in the UK that can kill you, unlike you guys it seems you have dozens of creatures that will mess you up fun time.

Good thing you don't live in Australia. Everything there is the world's most poisonous.

Well my camera is back in England !!

Having returned from our trip earlier in the year only to find it missing we thought we had lost all of our holiday snaps. Thankfully the camera turned up several weeks later at the car hire centre. Thanks to a friendly FSN'er the package arrived today.

Here is a picture of me with the a very tasty Styer SSG, with hydro dipped stock, care of Ipscscott.

A big thank you goes out to the FSN'er's who helped arrange this great day out. I very much look forward to our next adventure [smilie=pdt_xtremez_30.gif]

No, that one is a Rem 700 SPS in 7MM Mag. A Sweet Shooter that my friend loaned me for the weekend. The 300 BO is a 700 SPS Tactical. A whole lot shorter and darker.

I've only seen hogs inside the plot at the feeder. Seen some does out in the field north and east.

Ryan (from the grove) got a beautiful silver boar from that stand last month. I took a small boar last Friday from there.

The entry wound was pretty decent, and we found the round high in her right front shoulder still pretty much fully intact.

I built that 6.8 specifically for hunting to take the place of my 30-30 and 5.56. She had two very small pigs in her but she was just really damn fat. Her neck and head was HUGE


Eta: that's a 18t AAC. I had a hard time finding a resealable priced 5/8x24 muzzle device and this was for sale cheap on arfcom

i would say somewhere in the 100lb range. The rear hams were massive same with the rib cage. I am still learning to clean animals so maybe 5lbs or so of good meat met its demise in the gut bucket.
