    Looking for somewhere safe to sight in rifle and practice shooting near Gisborne

    Hey, I live in Gisborne and don't know where I can safely shoot without going into a public block and scaring everything off for other people.

    We don't have a deerstalkers association or any ranges open which seems stupid for the amount of hunting done here.

    I know a spot on a river that I could shoot out to 200 yds but there is always people there for other reasons and doesn't feel that safe and I'm not sure if that would even be legal.

    Any advice is welcome thanks.

    I had the same problem where I live as I live in town. I drove out of town and nicely asked some local farmers if I could sight in my rifle somewhere safe and legal to shoot, which isn't in a river bed where the public have unlimited access to. Sooner or later someone will say yes. Make sure you emphasise safe and legal when asking.
