Dearest Fred,
It is without doubt the sure fire way to define a mans character .... from a well rounded and the perfectly behaved gent of the lawn game of target or serious mien of the grimaced hunter ....

Somewhere , both in between , or above in esteem and legend is the ruffian , the scoundrel and jester ... the roving archer , the ‘stumper ‘ ... always my preferred and most sought companion for a day afield ....

Master of the course , for he chooses his target, Lord of the wild as direction travelled rarely suffers from the boredom of the pre determined .... comedian of the fiield and scourge to arrow design , for at the least , a few off the days targets will be fraught with danger to any arrow , of any design or composition ...

Here in the land of the Eucalyptus , pine plantations are the Cayman Islands of our sport , safe havens to be treasured , but any wildness is refuge , gold circles and written rules the tyranny from which the ‘stump shooter’ seeks refuge ....


It is well known that I go hunting for wild game ... a wonderful and most sensible facade to the wider world in masking my search for the inner scoundrel , the day afield when no target is too far , nor too risk laden for arrow integrity nor my aim

Long may it be so ....

Ben M. it would be a treat to shoot stumps with you Down Under.  But those hard, old gum tree stumps might be a little taxing on my arrows! [biggrin]

Good words Ben!  I guess that picture of your quiver full of arrows was taken in the morning a'fore you went a'rovin...
