    My names Dave from New Zealand. Just interested to see what hunting is like in the UK.
    I have been hunting in NZ since the late 1970s for red and sika deer. Shot a few Chamois and a few Tahr as well. Very different here as no game managemnt on public land and open season all year round and you can shoot as much as you want - in fact they want you to.
    Own my own forestry business and have access to a lot of land with animals - just lack time as working to hard - hopefully change this in a few years time.

    Hi Dave.
    Where abouts in NZ are you ? In the North Island I guess if you have sika .
    I travel down to southland each year shearing in November . I usally bring my .308 with me if you want a companion for a hunting trip . I would be keen to get a tar, I managed to shoot a 10 inch chammy buck a few years back on the West coast.
