    ahh gday fellaz. telecomunications have finally been hooked back up so im back on the interweb.
    i been getting out a bit. bloody was whacking over way too many goats there for a short period, my bloody chest freezer was over flowing, aparently the mrs cant eat goat 6nights a week she rekons. tells me she wants to eat chicken.?! chickens for those bloody towneys. so started hunting with open sights just to level out the playing feild a bit.
    still whacking over a few. enjoying getting up close and very personal. will have to put some photos up when i figure out how...

    Hey Goatcommander, I've been dropping a few Goats as well. I hunt a newly planted small forestry block and am up to 262 Goats.
    Slim pickings lately but every now and again a mob of 10 or so moves in from the neighbours farm.
    I have been using my P17 25-06, enfield 303-25 and occasionally my 303. And we also shoot the odd pig that comes to clean up the Goats.
    I guess 262 Goats could have done a heap of damage to newly planted pine trees, so the owner is all happy.

    cheers LR

    Hey bro, I sent out a search party for you a while back when you went awol but all they could find was a trail of goat bones.

    Been getting a few deer, no goats.

    Welcome back GC
    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
