  3. Just a head up our January 2019 Social night is on Thursday 17th at Engadine Bowling Club
  4. The weather was perfect for the butchering we had 34 members turn out for the day and I think everyone who attended had a good time a learnt a thing or two. Thanks to Shirehunters Member Scott and Kim from Bush Gear who got us the 2 Rusa deer to Butcher, also Brian "Chook" and the guys from Sutherland Small Bore Rifle Rang for letting us use your club grounds for the day. Also huge wrap to Cameron "Camo" for his knife work on the deer and talking and explaining the butchering on how to field butcher on the ground and from a hanging deer to all the guys that had never seen it done before. He also played with some of the knife kit that is supplied by Bush Gear and is a good set for someone starting out https://bushgear.com.au/sharp-knife-set-in-pvc-tube/ highlights from the butchering day
  5. Need some training at next club hunt how to navigate and add photos and where to post comments / hunt reports, etc.

    Accolades to the Committee for organising Bob McComb and 11th hour change of venue for the meeting. There were a few things had wrong with Fallow Deer regarding some of their behavioural traits. The biological proposal to reduce the Sambar population in Victoria after the numbers explosion is a concern. Bob reported Sambar numbers in Victoria to be estimated at 800K to 1M in 2017, with 90K taken each year. In the mid 80's the estimated number of Sambar in Victoria was 85K to 100K!

    Big thanks to the committee for getting Bob to attend. What an intersting man, I don't think there is anything he doesn't know about deer. I certainly walked away with a lot of useful information.
