Cheers, after a bit more searching and the good advice about glare off your bow with a head light I went for a led lenser and banged up a mount during lunch last week.

I think wind and smell is the first thing that must be addressed when bowhunting and don't waist your penny's on that cent block crap because they can still smell you breath.

Go real slow. If you can find something like an orchard to shoot in you get plenty of cover walking up the lines of trees and can keep things close range. No point if they are seeing you coming 100 yards out!
  

Just love being in the bush!

I had a look on Google earth and I was able to see the bulk bale which is the main target we use at home.  By right clicking on the mouse I was able to "measure from here to there" 
It gave an accurate measure of the distance I was shooting tonight. 
I also looked on google earth where I shot a rabbit at 16 metres by a railway line.  At this location I will get plenty of chances at around the 16m to 20 m distance so useful  info.
