    BOP get together - take a young fella hunting weekend. ...

    Ok here we go... so the idea is a weekend around October for a forum catch up - hunt - camp out sit round a fire and sing kumbyah... I personally love Te Urewera and think the 8 acre camp site is a damn fine base.. Open to suggestions around protocols, activities etc as long as we're teaching safe ethical values and ensuring everyone has a good time. .. what y'all reckon? ???

    Don't forget that the Toby shoot is in the middle of October. A lot of us are committed to that weekend. Early Oct is good though.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Just my 5 cents I have a 6 week old rat in my arms but will make it regardless, I'll book in now. Be tents or hut? I've only been into the huts down the river from there via chopper so I don't know.
    Great idea.

    Could be keen. Not sure if I meet your definition of a "young fella", but I'm young compared to Rushy!
