    Question Learn to hunt

    I'm hoping someone out there could point me in the right direction towards hunting. I have no experience but wanting to learn. Again if anyone knows what path I should take, that would be "O" for awesome. Thanks anyway.

    A good start would be to contact your local NZ Deer Stalkers club and ask for details of the next HUNTS course.
    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

    A good start would be to post in the hunting section, not fishing.....
    She loves the free fresh wind in her hair; Life without care. She's broke but it's oke; that's why the lady is a tramp.

    I was heading south this weekend but have pulled the plug on it due to the long range forecast looking shite. I will let you know when I reschedule and if it suits you can tag along.

    Best way to learn how to hunt is get as many books as you can handle,,( FACTUAL ONES)...And read, read, read. Even take a walk were you think game might hang out and read some more.
