    Yeah maybe but given that I've only be hunting for around 2yrs and not confident with finding locations etc I'm sure this would all east point me in 1/2 decent locations, right?

    It will give you an idea, I got one as an Xmas prezzie a while back. Sadly if its in the book it will be shot out by now.

    @BLABLANZ certainly decent books and good for someone starting out to get some ideas, I've never used them myself but can see the benefits of such a book yes. Once you have sorted out an area and found sign etc, start mapping out your own spots away from where the general population go.

    Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    We found out what swamp grass looked like when our landy bogged down to the axles trying to short cut between the bombing range and the lagoon up south head one time.
