    [QUOTE=Howdy.
    Just be warned, our country is deteriorating. If I didn't have family and commitments here I would quite happily swap countries with you. But it is what it is.
    And when you get here, you need to hunt down a beer called "Waikato". Brown bottle, green and yellow label. Don't let anyone try to talk you in to drinking any of those other sissy "beers".[/QUOTE]

    Thank you all for the kind words and welcomes. This will be a multi year deal but we are focused and have money saved to make the change if we decide to do so. I'd rather not talk politics but I'd strongly argue with whoever said that YOUR country is going to hell and they'd swap places with me!!
    But here...why do we want to come there? Because no one here is gettin out alive...and I want more for my wife and daughters.
    This is the greatest hunting picture/experience that I've ever had and likely will ever have....it was just the two of us eating candy and then this dude came along.

    Staying out of politics is a good idea. Stick to hunting and shooting

    Welcome mate, I’m sure you will love it over here. Any thought to what part of the country you’ll move to?

    There's an element of truth to that, ingredients are probably all Waikato cow piss water, sugar, some burnt grain and battery acid for flavor..

    Oh btw, beer and rifle calibers (especially .270) are also just as controversial.

    I don't drink and everyone knows there are no deer in places where people hunt a lot and first and foremost EVERYONE knows that the .270 is for sissies that can't handle a real gun....I kid I kid. That's one of the things I find super silly nowadays is the need not even to buy the latest and greatest gun but the latest and greatest caliber...like the 6.49 ABC or whatever. I think a well placed bullet on a animal from a .223-.375 will kill the crap out of it. Granted for your wapiti might want a .270 and up
    We are SUPER stoked to check out the South Island...hopefully 2 weeks next December.

    That is a myth. They are only on the far end of Farewell Spit. Oh and welcome aboard Joe.

    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

    well come prepared for the weather......it will most likely be hot and dry with strong hot winds..........or really wet and flooded.........with a chance of a southerly blast from antarctica bringing snow flurrys or blizzards........
