Introduce Yourselves Fellas

Looks like we've picked up a few new members in the shift, or old members with new names... 
Tell us a bit about yourselves guys, don't be shy

Me, the name's Pete, I'm a student at Otago university, studying Geology (sort of), live in Invervegas when I'm not out burning couches. I've been shooting since I was 10, mainly rabbits and the like, I got a few deer a couple of years ago then didn't get out for reasons unexplained. Got back into it this year, no deer lately but I just shot my first tahr 2 days ago. This place has been great, I've learned a heap about hunting and shooting from here, and met some great guys too.

Live in Oamaru, work in South Canterbury, North, East and Central Otago and also occaisonally in the lower part of the West Coast.

Been hunting since I was about 7,  and prefer to hunt tahr especially, but pigs and deer are more often the target, due to handiness.

Oscar is my lab, and 128 is my street address - signed on to something in the past that had more than one Oscar, so needed a number at the end.

.308 and .243 Sakos, Benelli M1 Super 90 12g, plus a few odds and ends.

Not hunting quite as much at the moment, so this site gives me a fix!  Smiley

I live near  Whakatane on a small deer farm of approx 300 head. Self employed mowing contractor to pay the bills. Married with 2 now adult step sons who live in the USA. Not much of a hunter these days apart from bunny blasting around home. Main interests are range shooting and I'm the secretary of the local pistol & rifle range at Awakeri.

Used to be West Coaster in the old forum, but my career is taking me off the coast early next year, so thought I'd better change the log in.  Can't be a Coaster if you don't live there!

Spent some time in the Camelot River area of Fiordland...it became my knickname among a few hunting friends. 

Perfer Tahr and high country hunting to bush bashing -> love the hard climbs! 
Am training a GWP.

My name's Jamie; Originally from Mt Maunganui. I have been living in Canterbury for the last 5years, still studying at Varsity and enjoying the felxibility for hunting related expiditions Grin I mainly hunt red deer, and chamois, but shoot the odd pig, and chase the odd tahr. I think we're lucky to have such vast areas of public land to hunt - so may as well cover as much of it as poss/ The name mountainman comes my personal hunting website www.mountainman.co.nz that is truly where I feel most at home

My names Aidan...aka...HQRacer....

Very new to the hunting scene - large game at least.

Live in Wellington, work in corporate IT.  Race a HQ Holden in my spare time (did I see a panelbeater on the list above??  Grin ) and in my other spare time currently eradicating bunnies and other small games from friends and families farms.

This site is awesome...a wealth of information and cool people.
