    Good on ya Possumer
    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

    Just getting into hunting and intend to cut my teeth on goats before moving onto skilled prey lol.
    Would anyone be kind enough to pas on tips as to best practice, best terrain, most likely spots, decent books to read, etc etc etc lol. I'm in Marlborough and am currently enjoying mostly sweaty steep DOC climbs whilst carrying a gun for company. Have put 2 in the freezer so far but only because I almost tripped over them.
    Loving the buzz of being out there, as I explain to the wife, you feel alive as the adrenaline pumps in. Also feel that I learn something everytime I go out.. Be it wind, tracks, droppings, paths etc. feel like a sponge as just want to absorb and learn. Looking forward to that side of it taking alifetime.

    Cheers

    sunny dry faces are good. goats hate wet feet!! they like high ridges and rocks aswell. not sure what the terrains like up there. down here the billys are scrapping and rooting so if you sit and listen in a area they are in you should pick them up, plus the smell of them!! im useless on stalking now since I use my dog. if he could talk then I would have lots of tips for you haha
