    Sorry faregame I don't know the blocks but the place is quite gentle and lousy with animals so you should get on OK
    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

    yeah lucky wish that translated into lotto as well - this will be my 3rd time in total - each time to a different block - won sometimes, taken others

    yeah rushy, always seen stuff, will depend just how far I can walk - blocks not far from the car park so thats something - either way will still be a nice day out

    I had block 5 couple of years ago, pines were being thinned was hard to move about off track without making any noise
    Sinu road, think thats how you spell it is the main road going up through the block, its a sand road and there were 3 main deer crossings on it, that would be your best sit and wait spot i would think
    We went in on the end of a storm still raining so prints we saw were all fresh and the buggers even walked in our boot marks as we found out on the way back out, if the wind is going to be SW like it can be might pay to suss your map and cut across the top of the block and come down Sinu road from North to South
    I would ring Allgood from the other forum and have an updated yarn, i have his no if you want me to PM it

    I had block 2 last year - mainly sat on the cliffs (when you see them they are obvious) - which overlook a lot of block 2 and out to block 1

    Going south from the car park - along the boarder with block 2 - there are cut over pines on block 1 next to grown trees (this was last year anyway)
    I saw a lot of deer in this area - a lot of toe toe and further on young pines - the valley runs north/south and is inside block 2 - so it comes down from block 1 as well

    Anyway about half way down on the boundary road, is a road running west - its from this area that I saw 3 stags coming out of the young pines - which is block 2 but I'm sure that they move around a bit

    Google Earth shows the area, its 2011 images, but still will give a idea

    Well we went on Sunday - got lucky with the rain only a few small showers

    Overall according to the patrol people it was a poor day - heard a few gunshots but all misses from what I know

    Anyway we saw 3 deer total, plus 2 pigs

    And we got a nice Doe!

    A nice day out (any day out is nice) ((Generally))

    At least one of those shots wasn't a miss. This was what a good friend of mine got.
