Well I've been busy again and changed jobs, I'm up in the midlands again but as its going to get busier I thought I'd share this with you, Georgia sounds like a fun place to live if you last long enough that is!
The Emporer strikes again!

Scotland 2015

Maybe a little late in the season and with Hurricane Desmond chasing us we headed north in a hired car.

As can be seen the weather wasn't always bad, this picture was taken on the sunday, typically a day that you cant shoot on in Scotland, same house, same rules
Sadly due to some seriously funny tums I ended up bringing most of the spirits back
Day one hurt like hell, 3-4000 feet up in 2 foot of snow and a 2 and a half bottles of red hangover and a full cooked breakfast. How I survived I'll never know

 The Ghillie was his usual great self, a speed demon at the gralloch and carcasse prep
 

 Nice to see a return to a normal state of affairs even if its mainly Roe
 Exit wound fro a 173 grain 7x57 on a Roe Doe;
 Heart smashingly effective on the small deer
 Standing proudly but only just in the gales at about 4000 feet up
 SBW with a great kill using the 7x57, a Ruger 77 Mk2, 6x42 S&B with a B&T moderator
 A happy chappy no doubt on the red hind that he took on the last day
 Hartley the Hare was destined for the Ghillies soup after a cracking 180 yard head shot with the Grendel
 Even the Ghillie had a go
For Hartley though it was terminal

Scotland calls

Ive been snowed under with business and other problems recently but in this my fiftieth year I have found time to spend a week in the Highlands with a close and dear friend and two good mates.
Its been one of those years where everything seems to have happened leaving me somewhat bewildered.
I do however have a new camera, an early christmas present thanks to my family and am determined to get back to a better place. It starts with scotland this week. Obviously pics to follow!

In keeping with the coming season

Shamelessly lifted from Home on the range
I know Ive been awol, the T Lady is away on holiday so Ive been smuggling some toys into the house


 Very tasty looking, needs a sound moderator though, I bid on it at Holts and although I havent had the chance to shoot it yet I think I should be happy, talking of Holts, two events ago I had the pleasure of meeting these three Gentlemen!;
 And finally, thanks again to Brigid;
I'll not leave it so long next time!

Well seeing how today is the day after the T lady's birthday



As I asked the sweaty at work today dressed head to toe in Railway orange, "are you marching later, seeing how your dressed already?"
