    Are you going for maximum quietness?

    What's the 8mm recoil like compared with 308??

    Went to middle hill hut. Trip turned out as well as I had hoped considering the quarry and the forecasted weather.

    Spooked 3 and tried to stalk in on one in a steep valley.





    Not the best pictures I know but there was a slip which I can kind of say with certainty that there is no sika that I could see during the day.







    Nice beech forest without supple jack was nice. Bush lawyer wasn't.



    Found this weird bug.

    In all a good trip. Met some funny buggers on the way out.

    I know! I considered waiting it out but it is a huge low pressure system and I didn't have heaps of food left and then the ford had risen quite a bit for my little car to get across easily.

    Sounds good. Will drop you a PM, I'm sure we'll hatch a plan, I'm itching to get out of Auckland and get into deer hunting more.

    Sounds good. There are a couple of places I go to depending on how far I want to drive.
