    Just moved back into the country and took my first walk there last week.

    Shot a nice yearling in a head gut. Spring growth was just coming through so have a good look around the feed areas and you should get into them.

    Good Luck.

    this place gets a lot of stick! but it has a lot of hunters, a lot of deer and a lot of area. i was in there last friday evening and shot a very easy yearling.identify your target, be carefull and you will have a good time of it,bush is shit but go slow, its a nice handy place to hunt.

    Not this one Nickoli.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    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

    Went up there this morning, stopped at the range and put a few through our rifles to check them and make sure the weather which was a bit dicy first thing was going to clear and it did.
    Drove to the end of the road and climbed up the hill for about an hour, more of a blow out to get the hunting legs going again. Saw a bit of fresh sign, spotted a hind but didnt shoot it and noted the fern was starting to come through on the sunny edges. N ice to be out there again after winter
