Nice shot and nice stag :clap:
And lucky for you, it wasent your time :shifty:

Sounds like a hard trip back, you need to get in better shape :whistle:
Thanks Buddy, I was lucky that's for sure. :doh: Walk out was a slog no questions there and trying to move the stag on the side of a hill was no fun. But I train for it as its all part of it and you work hard for it. It does make it a little easier, but walking up local hills with a 30kg pack on is one thing, but its not the same as walking up them hill's with 50+kg of Sambar stag in your pack :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks Steve, it was hard yakka to cape out and to get the meat off him. I was fighting with 6 or 7 euros at one time, and I kepted flicking small bits of meat 10 yards away so they would move off. Tip of the week, if you haven't yet got a small folding saw, get one. When you can't physically get a good position to twist the head off, the saw works great. I was very lucky to be given a Helium knife off Rob Herbert from R&N Blades Australia a couple of years ago. It cape the whole stag out and cut meat off and my fingers :doh: without been shapen. I did buy a second one off him last year and I'm glad I did for a spare. Not sure if I'll use it as he only made 15 of that design.

Man that drilled him! Looks like a hell of a rig👍
Do you have any vid of the rifle shooting, I'd love to see what sort of barrel rise you get with the brake.
I shoot a 7-08 mainly because I found years ago a 270wsm without any suppressor or brake was to much rifle for me.
A lot more time behind a rifle since then and some loading experience has me thinking about bigger gear lol

Here is a quick video before I had the brake fitted and cerakoted. Without the brake it tracks very well and with the brake it's even better. If you don't have a flinching issue, there's nothing like watching your target get hit and everything that happens after the shot. :handgestures-thumbup:
