    Helicopter hunting ...

    Myself and a couple mates spent Friday night and Saturday morning this weekend up in north canty for a hunt (my first deer hunt) and were disturbed by a helicopter culling. Now I don't know if a helicopter banging about all morning would have much effect on seeing more or less game etc but it was pretty annoying..

    We saw good sign everywhere and had a good time in general but gutted when you spend the time and effort walking in to get buzzed like that, not to mention watching them fly off after 3 trips with 10+ kills

    I wanna go back in there again but not if it's getting smashed by helicopters, do people on here think that the helicopter would of made much difference to our chances? Or am I just being a bit pedantic, I know a lot of hunters are largely opposed to this type of hunting.. Keen for some opinions

    Cheers Nick...

    Sounds like waro. Helihunting is something different. It is a bit annoying but they will never get them all, just stick to the bush

    lower numbers will of course make hunting bit harder but there are obviously good numbers there or it wouldn't be profitable to run the machine.
    Concentrate on scrubbey guts and slips that run down into the bush.
    IE Close to cover, they wise up fairly smartly or as Perazzi said go bush.
    "Hunting and fishing" fucking over licenced firearms owners since ages ago.

    Dint think it was worth them doing it any longer ?? Id heard wild venison wasn't salable over seas now ?
    It is annoying if you've slogged yr guts out to get to a spot to have a machine go over your and even more if they are shooting.

    Oh you are courting a severe reprimand for that Neckshot. I will just sit back and wait for the bruising to be dished out ha ha ha ha
    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

    Don't even use your scope to check them out...if I was in a whirly bird and seen someone up to no good on the ground, it would be their next of kin I would be discussing what they may have been up too.
    Which is worse, ignorance or apathy...I don't know and don't care.

    Spook, that is no better than Neckshot's statement.

    Neither one is acceptable and may I remind you both that this is a public forum... you guys might want to engage your brains for just a bit before posting shit about pointing (or worse) firearms at HUMAN BEINGS

    I see at this point I can still edit my post...but wont. If you feel the need for it to be removed, then do so.
    Way too many people point their firearms at other people and aircraft to check them out and there is no way of knowing what state of safety their firearm is in.

    Don't see the point of having it removed... You posted it, it is against your username for as long as this forum exists...
    Agree 100% about the second part, but in my mind that does not justify someone in the heli firing at them (which is what your first post insinuated).
