    Long time wannabee hunter, short time FA "owner"

    Hiya all,
    Stumbled on this forum while searching or info on semi-auto .22LR's. Joined up a while back, but mainly just been reading as I ddin't have much to say at the time.
    Been meaning to get my FA for many years, but never got around to it until bout this time last year.
    First true hunting experience was Waikaremoana when I was about 11 or 12 with my old man. That pretty much got me hooked on NZ outdoors and I've been meaning to get motivated ever since.
    Been out tramping/camping so many times, and finally thought it was about time I carried something more worthwhile than a sharp stick with me.
    Now I have a Remington 597 .22 and an Enfield ex-service .303, as well as use of Dad's old favourite Winchester .308 (he's grown rather attached to his SKS).

    First trip out after receiving license was Stewart Island (of all places) in April. Saw very fleeting glimpses of 1, another in our party saw 2, but no-one managed to shoot anything, not a single round fired in 10 days. Would go back in a heartbeat.
    I haven't been out anywhere since, other than to a couple of mates farms after possums.
    to be honest, I don't have the faintest idea of where to go, or even how to legally gain access to any of the hunting areas.
    Hopefully this forum will be the wealth of information I hope it to be.

    Welcome Peril. Plenty of advice to be found on this forum.
    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

    I plan on sticking around, I've been on another NZ shooting forum but the attitudes of some were rather disappointing.

    Couldn't have said it better myself

    Welcome mate, you'll be out knocking over deer before you know it!!
    She loves the free fresh wind in her hair; Life without care. She's broke but it's oke; that's why the lady is a tramp.

    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
