    Wanting to buy some hunting gear

    Hello everyone Iím going to be getting my firearms license soon and plan on going bush once I have some gear sorted I have $500 saved my older brother said I should buy a 44 but he mostly chases pigs where he lives. He gave me a good knife! The things I need to get are

    Day bag
    Binos
    Boots
    A rifle of course
    And a scope

    I want to buy some of these with my savings so I have everything I need ! If anyone can point me towards some second hand gear that would be awesome!!
    Thank you
    Blade

    have a look at @Sarvo for boots. as for a rifle watch here for some good deals or even an old 303 with a reasonable barrel with open sights for a starter will do the job just add a reasonable recoil pad or a sporterised 6.5 x 55 is another good economic option.

    go to your local Cash Converters and browse their shelves . They have all sorts of stuff that might work for you . Boots need to be tried on before you commit to buy.

    You don't have to spend $150 on a day pack. $30 and it comes with a hydration bladder. It is even in camo!

    Good luck with your journey. Sure is hell of a lot of fun. I have an old, well used pack you can have. 65 +10ltr. Can be used as a day pack although on the larger side. The pack has had 100's of kg's of meat lugged out in it, approx 15yrs old. Has adjustable harness.

    At fifteen your most probably still growing so boots don’t buy the most expensive pair.
    Where are you likely to go hunting, what type of ground? Solomon gtx boots are a good set that will fit and last a few years.
    I’ve had mine for three and wear them every day. There just about stuffed now. They don’t dry very fast though and they can be cold. But if you wear good woollen socks you should be fine.
    Down load the map toaster to your phone and also learn how to use a compass
    Maybe join your local NZDA they have hunting courses which should trench you a few tricks
