I'm in the US,not to far north from NY City(about 2 hrs drive),and I am trying to get a feel for hunting in the UK.
Trying to put a hunt together for CWD,at some point in the next two years.
I hunt mainly with a Blaser,270 win,300 RUM,8x57,28 ga. barrels.
Birds with a 20ga O/U with extra 28 ga set in Beretta,or a 12 ga 391 semi auto.
Here our laws on gun ownership are rather liberal and frankly I hunt with a lot more including several other rifles,shotguns,handguns and compound bow.
We hunt mainly Whitetail Deer and Black Bear for big game.Turkeys, pheasant,and some woodcock for game birds.Ducks and geese for waterfowl.And a host of small game;coyote,fox,squirrels....
To me its about the hunt,not the inches or in this case centimeters;and the company of good sportsmen....
