    Anyone got a setup for Mid range shooting in Southland

    Gday,

    I'm wanting to get some practice in shooting at ranges around 500yards. Does anyone know where I can do this? Or have a setup for this that there willing to share with a keen young fella? Can supply laughs and beer ect.

    Cheers,
    Tim

    You will find some deer at 500 yards on top of the Longwoods !

    I'd be keen for a walk next week as a spotter - arriving back in Invercargill after 31 years on Thursday !

    In a civilized and cultivated country, wild animals only continue to exist at all when conserved by the sportsman. The excellent people who protest against all hunting, and consider sportsmen as enemies of wildlife are wholly ignorant of the fact that in reality the genuine sportsman is by all odds the most important factor in keeping wild creatures from total extinction.

    Cheers, I'll PM you when I get settled in my new house. Got to buy some furniture and sort out some landscaping before a family get together on October 30th.

    Would be keen to host a local Forum BBQ early December if any one else is interested.

    I'm still going to the same SPOT X's that I frequented 30 years ago and shooting (spooking ) deer so I'm not looking to encroach on anyone's territory.

    I'm in the process of setting up a range at my farm got 800 meters and can stretch out to 1300 but don't want to shoot at that spot at the moment cause there are deer hanging about. Will be ready for shooting in a couple weeks. Have 6 gongs at the moment but 2 are only 100 x 100 . Give us a yell when the weathers more settled and we can organize a day . Nice pics of bald hill by the way

    Apologies in advance! I am in a great hunting country but not enough for a long range shooting kind of thing( unless I want to walk and care a "bit" of wait way up the hills) so if you guys allow me I would like to crash your "party" if possible.
    I am few hours out north from you guys but would love to practice my skills in ranges over 500mts.

    Cheers
