After lurking for a while I thought it was about time I joined the fun. I live in South West Queensland in regional Australia and am lucky enough to go hunting/shooting most weekends. Feral pigs and kangaroos (under permit) are my main target. After 35 years of hunting I still can't wait to get out in the bush for a look around and have no plans of slowing down soon.
Sako's and Kahles are my preference as well as an XD50 thermal scope I got in Jan this year after a bit of a hiccup in customs. The majority of my shooting is done at night using a spotlight, a 222 and 243 fitted with fixed 8x56's do the job nicely. The thermal comes out a fair bit as well when the pigs become light shy.
As for stalking I did take a coupe of Fallow bucks about 15 years ago down on the Queensland/New South Wales border, not very large animals but certainly a challenge and new to me at the time.
I am really interested to see how things are done in the UK, so far it seams very different.
