    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !

    Welcome wiserKid. Be sure to tag along with someone who hunts a bit first to get some basic safety and hunting skills. Guys who have no or little experience in the bush etc are prone to getting lost or making bad calls. Enjoy the out doors and have a bit of respect for it and you'll come home with a feed over time.

    Welcome to the hunting, careful its addictive.
    NZDA , check out Waikato Deer stalkers.
    Good way to meet people who can help.
    They also run a hunts coarse which covers everything you need to hunt and stay safe.
    Good luck
    Love walking my gun

    Hey man and welcome ,

    +1 for the NZDA on the whole a bunch of great guys who will give you the shirt off their back.

    As for hunting, a .22 rimfire is not permitted on DoC land and some would argue is not an ethical larger game killing rifle. So I would suggest heading around the local farmers. Go door knocking after the morning milking and explain your situation and that you are wanting to learn. Alot of farmers do their own pest control but some may be willing to let you tag along. The worst they can say is no and then just thank them for there time and move on to the next farm and hope for better luck!

    Biggest piece of advice I was told when learning to hunt is be patient and take your time!!

    Best of luck out there

    You know, if you need 100 rounds to kill a deer, maybe hunting isn't your sport.

    Hey Buck Shot how is Te Tuhi compared to Thompsons?
    I had a walk up Thompsons this weekend and nothing kicking about until the first logging skid.
    Just wondering if the track is similar condition to Thompsons?

    Cheers
