Out bags and stuff and, we're. Expecting one, to five mill around tonight, so. I've brought up I've. Got a little basher but if it gets windy and bad I've got my. Vietnam. Australian. Defense Force cargo. Parachute, we're, talking for up in the trees if it gets real out, my. Cars in town with the missus we're getting the wheels rotated, around so, I'm, actually driving a French frightened, old, Mecca, another, Vietnam vet actually, the guy got the parachute, cargo. Cargo. Parachute from in the first place. And. He's. Actually up in Townsville. At the moment receiving, he's. Gone. For the fire. Support base by the coral. 50. Years ago. It's. Their, half-century. Celebration, up there so the boys up there Mecca, Brian. Mac another, different Mac and all the boys from first Battalion are er well.

Anyway we're sling it on on turning around guys give you an idea what we're looking at just. Beautiful. So, there's interesting to test out they all tried. He's. A good wagon I'll give you the chip shells and got as much cuffed and go as. My. There's. My forge arrow it's. Not an injection see so, takes. A bit of getting, up, there but anyway which, is a nice rig easy to load and, there's. A crack and don't hear the to. Get. Out that off. Alright. Boys. Better watch the rides so I'll bring you back when we're up there. Scout. Some sites. Like. Berry bushes and a lot of Bracken around really, really dense think. About deer guys it's, like any large game or humans, for that matter they'll. Take the road less traveled, but it is a road they don't like firing through, dense. Bush and getting ripped to pieces by. Thistles. And thorns just, like we don't do Schumann's so, they'll always try and find the easiest way through and so far, it's been pretty dense pretty, dense bush this, area over here.
Directly. In this position, is. Where me. And Maxie boy normally hunt I know these hills very well so. Basically what I've done is I've just come over the top here down. From that's Piniella this way and. I've come all the way over the hills here just the last two hours just it's getting in little campsites, and having to look around and just get, the feel for this side of the bush. Go. For a week yeah. Scatter, Oh. Guys. This is us Moss, with a flat land. Gaali head, gali, head down. Gali. Head down. Dulli. Head down. My. Family rough here. Me. And. Paul. Think. Maxie was here, drop. One Sam, on the other side of this skully head here and like, to walk him from the top of the hill all the way over sat. Down on a log half way through. The. Bloody toga came out under me legs it. Was about this time of year as well we thought it was too. Cold for snakes but no they're up there. But. Anyway we shot a lot of deer in this area before so, it's, all good I know it like the back of my hand so good. This. This plantation. At the top of this hill is not in use at the moment they've. Given it a lot. Felling. Felling. The other side of the mountain so the. Other side of the hill so this track should be relatively, quiet it's something give the other hunters and myself. Maxie. Boy back. To where we normally go Belle did. A lot of Reiki in today and. Really. Some really awesome tracks up there but, I. Think. It's better if we do it because I'm by myself it's new it's a new area I think, it'd be better if I did it with Maxie, boy and. We're going to I radios, in the ePub and the GPS and all that I've. Got the GPS. No. Point in having a two-way radio you got no one else to talk to, so. No guys I'm. Selling the I, set. Up and caught here. I'll. Give me a better across here just, just. In case she decides P, down and then. What I'll do is I'll pack the car around, give. Me a bit of shelter and. That's, it so in the morning I will take. Off through there, and. Work my way down. If. I don't see any sign there I'll backtrack. Depending. On what way the winds blowing guys. But. Yes all good. All. Good Sun. Will be rising. And, you can see that's the Sun there it's gonna be setting in, the West in about two, hours. Bit. Of forward down there. You. Know I saw. It make me fire down there won't be a big one, but. Anyway let's. Get set up. Camps. All set up. No. Soul not even a cockatoo. Didn't. Even need a five-block, on this one, just. Some old old. Twigs and a bit of gum, tree leaves. And, my bag. Go.
