    Hello from UK

    Hi all, was referred here by Mathias and thought I'd join to be in touch with more people with similar interests. I'm lucky to hunt mostly Roe deer and the odd Sika here in NE Scotland. My favourite rifle is a Sako 75 in 6x45 shooting 62gr GS Custom bullets. I'm still trying to perfect a carbon fibre stock for my Sako! I read 'The Sika Hunters' by Alex Gale last year and really enjoyed it. I'd love to visit NZ some day.

    Thanks for having me.

    Hi Rory, welcome aboard. You had better post some pictures of that fine piece of equipment in the gun porn section. Go the 6x45

    Hi

    Like you I am new to the forum and I emigrated to NZ in 2007 from Scotland. A great place to be and agree you should make the effort to visit.

    Cheers, Hope you're getting some deer this summer!

    My rifle is already looking a bit used and abused but will try to sort out some pics.

    Welcome and enjoy.
    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

    Gday mate, I was in Scotland just this year, caught up with a bloke from another forum and did a hunt with him. Saw a few roe bucks but couldn't manage to get one. Next time aye.

    Beautiful place though and lovely people.

    What have you been smoking Scouser? The South Island is not at all like Scotland! For a kick off I don't struggle to understand most South Islanders.

    What's the public land situation in the uk? Are there big forests where you just walk on with a permit and shoot whatever or is it a ballot or pay to play on some toffee nosed landed persons estate?
