Hector lawson's Ruger .450 Bushmaster strikes again. Question Hector, have you put the .308 Ruger Scout away in grease now you have this thumper? Anyhoo, Hec's story this week is about going for a really longer-than-usual walk to EVENTUALLY deck a nice boar with his new bundook - hard won and as a result more satisfying, no doubt.
Despite the satisfaction, Hec still had a long walk back to the vehicle, so off he trudges, thumb in bum, mind in neutral until he gets back near his ute ... only to find a couple of sows sniffing around. Thumb outta bum, mind in gear and he decks them too. Onya Hector - you legend, love your work.
Next, received a nice image of distant fallow from Davo Creek(?!)

We have changed the prize lineup courtesy of Ridgeline, with a new knife and the Ridgeline Tru-Shot Backpack and the good old Ridgeline Haul All Bumbag and Meatsafe, which I regularly use in the field. It has proven most satisfactory, durable and a great expedient field rest due to its design.
