    Hi team im James - 30 - Based in Hamilton

    Have viewed this forum from a distance, learning as much as i can.
    Completed the NZDA Hunts Course with the Waikato branch last year, then spent about 14 months waiting for my license to go through the process.
    License finally came just in time for lockdown.

    Keen to get out and learn first hand if anyone is up for it - LandSAR volunteer so know my way around in the bush etc.

    Cheers

    Welcome Marlow. People on this forum are very helpful so good place to be!
    As @scotty mentioned, we mainly hunt the Pureoras and I’d be happy for you to tag along when we head down again.
    Next trip will likely be in 2026, after lockdown.
    Send me an IM so I remember.

    Welcome. Well done so far.
    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
