    Same as the last rifle,, 243, find it very good bush hunting particularly for Sika Ended up at the Taupo range sited it in and helped another person there at same time.
    As I was in Taupo and the day was nice I then went to one of to one of the well used forest park tracks for a quick walk with the rifle. hunted a couple of spots with out any luck as the wind was swirling from in front to behind and was reasonably strong. However when I was getting closer to the track after stalking half a km or so away from one of the tracks I came across a nice reasonably clear spot in amongst the thick pepper wood with a fresh scraping and a wallow fairly close by. it hadn't been used since the recent rain but indicates to me that the stags are still in the area.OVer the next month i will try to get back there for another proper look.Name:  IMG_2590 (2).JPG

    I've just moved to Hamilton and am keen to get out for a look as well, need to find somewhere to sight in my rifle first though. Is there a range local?

    I still have legit access to Rotorua range and live in Hamilton. If I am heading over will let you know. Might be doing a trek there this weekend for a 22 or may be heading south to Piro Piro flats for a little deer chasing. There is also a range within Hamilton that apparently you can get access to something like every 3rd Saturday of the month.

    Yeah, I'm the same as Willie and have legit access to the Rotorua deer stalkers range. I'll let you know if I head back to Rotorua any time soon and we could try and jack something up if you're keen

    That'd be great, itching to get out but my rifle needs to be set up first. Shouldn't be too much envolved, two shoots at 100m and i'll be all sorted.
