Hi all I am a Christchurch, New Zealand based Brit. I hunt reds, fallow, tahr, chamois and pigs but don't get out nearly as much as I'd like due to having two young kids. Hunt in the moutains once every couple of months, mostly bivvying out or staying in backcountry huts on weekend trips and occasionally longer hunts.
I use a Weatherby .270, the missus has a Ruger .243 and I use a Marlin .22 mag for hares.
I moved to nz in 2006, and access to hunting was a big draw. Access to public land here is amazing. All my hunting is on public land although i had access to some private land for fallow for a while which was awesome.
I havent shot any big trophies, and hunt for meat. The kids love rare venison, and I make a mean tahr rendang.
I used air rifles since a teenager and always wanted to deer stalk but never got together in the Uk. Looking forward to being a member of the forum and sharing what I can.
Big ups to my old mate Pob who introduced me to the forum.
