    I like Waikato. There I said it, out the closet. Can't stand hoppy beers, so that's 95% of local beers off the menu.

    Never tried the stuff personally. I did watch a bloke cover a goat's head with a Waikato box once though. The goat head butted him into a gully...oh,how we laughed.

    or

    2/. You are a serial killer or hit guy for the mob

    Never will they suspect that you are a successful hunter who gets deer.....

    I hope he doesn't stand on his head too long or it'll be more than Waikato that leaks back down to/out his ears!!

    Lots of good people here, a few cranky ones, the occasional lunatic, a Tomato sauce addict, and a poor misguided soul who believes Waikato beer is the elixir of the Gods..........

    Here are a few truths I have learnt since joining in the winter of '17 or '18, I forget which.

    There are plenty of people here who will take an interest in your adventures, struggles, fuckups, and successes.

    They will offer advice, possibly lend or even donate gear, tell you to pull your head in if you're being a idiot, offer to take you away for a hunt and help you however they judge they reasonably can.

    Doing this for people, particularly those beginning, is rewarding for experienced hunters with knowledge to pass on.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    A few things that WON'T automatically happen:

    (1) Guys here won't automatically share their favourite hunting spots with you. They found them by sweat, patience, trial and error, or were proven trustworthy enough to be let onto private land by the owners.

    Some will happily give you general pointers about places you can go, but not necessarily places that have worked for them.

    (2) People won't necessarily buy your firearms if you've only posted once or a few times, especially if something in your post sets off their bullshit meters, which are in some cases, highly developed.

    Knowing who you're dealing with helps build trust.

    (3) People won't necessarily continue to help you if you ask for a whole lot of gear, get it, then drop off the radar.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Some things that will inevitably happen.

    (1) Admitting that you own a 7mm08, 6.5 Creedmore, or .270 (and occasionally a .243) will attract pisstaking.

    This is inevitable. I own a 7mm08 and have been called various things because of it,(@ Steve123, you bastard).

    None of it means anything at the end of the day.

    The four rifles above will all take deer when competently used.

    If it happens to you, just smile, and wait for an opportunity for a revenge pisstake.

    (2) Somebody will REALLY tick you off. If it continues, use the "ignore" button. Long bitter arguments are tiresome to have to wade through.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------

    In conclusion, Keep a strong sense of humour, as much humility as you can muster, and be prepared to keep learning.

    PS, I've surely missed a few pointers. But there'll no doubt be comments below.......

    There are days I only scrape through marginally.

    My pick for pope would be a guy named Father Richard Rohr.

    I'm not a Catholic myself, but I've found his teachings immensely helpful.

    The Vatican wouldn't have him though, and I doubt he'd want the job.
