I just picked up the $40 lighter from dick smiths, in blue though not orange, no orange ones there. You have to get lighter gas as well to charge the supplied "resivour"(spelling?) or find disposable lighters to go in it. Bloody hot flame but!
  

So many CATS , so FEW recipes!

Nimrod,

Firstly thanks heaps for your thread, learnt a lot of what you should take in the hills. my old man used to say pack what you think you'd need then throw half of it out!!!

I'm in the market for a new headlight and also a pikau (planning on sewing my own one up). If poss could i grad the size of your pikau and also your headlight make and model???

Cheers
  

Went to buy some camouflage trousers the other day but I couldn't find any.

The Pikau is 700x500......just a standard cheap as chips Ridgeline model with the pocket on the back. They have started making that model again & the new container has just landed. Only around $40 I think  Smiley

The torch long ago lost it's name badge through wear & tear but it's a fairly standard model with a green bulb & a white bulb function. Uses 3 AAA batteries. Common as muck  Grin

It's better than that.  The new model is made out of two layer laminated fleece which is stringer and more water resistant than normal fleece.
  

This is my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine.  Without my rifle I am useless, without me it is useless.

I still always carry the tried and true waterproof matches with striker in a film cannister with some bike tube as absolute backup.

Just another tip Guys........instead of having bits of firelighting rubber all floating around loose in
your survival kit, I slip it over things like the Lighter, candle stub, windproof matches & film canisters.
I also use bike & wheel barrow tube rubber bands to hold gear together, like the rifle sling, rolled up raincoat & rolled up Pikau. Then it's always with you when/if you need it  Wink

So assume you hunt with the rifle sling removed (or a spare?) and is that common practise?

You would find that a fair percentage of bush hunters dont hunt with a sling
