G’day all. I'm Steve. I’m mainly into hunting these days. Mostly with ex-mil stuff and have a bit of an interest in wildcats and obsolete chamberings. I am a fitter by trade and like making my own bits and pieces. Catch you round.

Hey everyone!
New to the forum. Me and a mate, both from victoria, are just trying to get into the duck hunting scene. We have both done our WIT. ive just recently bought a fabarm elos b 12g as my first gun. Mate has a browning.

We've been out a couple of times just trying to suss it all out and am definetly getting more experience. Any hints or tips from anyone would be muchly appreciated, other than that just trying to learn and pick up as much as we can.

Cheers guys.

Welcome. Same as me, sit and wait. That's if I get a chance to get out, pretty rare at the moment.

G'day. Ipswich 22lr target shooter, mostly. I like reading reviews, too. I'd be a 22 collector, if I could.

Good afternoon ladies and gents.

I’m new to the forum so thought I should do the right thing and introduce myself.

I’m from SA, currently own a CZ 452 in 22lr. Also have a couple of old Lithgow single shot 22’s. I have just ordered my first Cat B rifle, went with a Tikka T3 Lite in .243

Our family owns a small parcel of land in the mid north and to date have had a little bit of luck with the bunnies. Bought the .243 to expand our possibilities and looking to get onto foxes and hopefully some goat in the area.

Look forward to trolling through the forums and learning from more experienced shooters.

Cheers

Welcome Hallsie12345.
Nice to have another South Aussie in the ranks. :drinks:

Im not sure what part of the mid north you're in (id obviously guess the upper reaches if you have goats in the area), but i used to frequent the mid north with rifle, shotgun & spotlight, & ive bowled over my fair share of foxes in the lower mid north.
Not to mention take a regular feed of bunnies & the occasional puddy tat from the area. :D

Nice choice of rifle & calibre for what you want to use ut on :clap: (as long as you dont want to keep fox skins)...i want one of those very outfits myself...! :thumbsup:

Are you reloading ammo yourself or buying factory...?

See you on the screen Hallsie... :drinks:

Thanks for the welcome Stix!

Our property is around half an hour north east of Burra. It’s been real dry up there lately so haven’t seen much around, except the roos, they are everywhere!

My old boy went up over the weekend and said it’s starting to green up and saw a few critters running around, looks like I’ll have to get up there soon for a look!

Certainly not planning on keeping any skins, just going to do my part and help out the neighbours who have stock around!

The amount I’ll be shooting I’m going to stick with factory rounds at this stage. Unfortunately I don’t get up there as much as I would like.

Cheers, Hallsie
