A bit different than your typical NZ hunting, hope you enjoy! I was a little surprised how effective the little 6mm bullet has been.

It is much better to Hit the Animal in the right place, with a Rifle you can shoot well, then to hit it poorly with a Large Calibre..John Nosler

The venison actually goes to the gamedealer, I don't see any of it. Have shot hundreds of deer, but only ever eaten one...

It is open, the deer pick you up very far away with ears stiffening, heads lifting and the animals just drifting away. If the winds and terrain fall in your favour it can however be fairly easy if you pick the correct route. Andrew is much more thourough than me, always looking into dead spaces to make sure we don't flush any hidden animals. I tend to go for the target.

Yeah, hit them where the ear meets the jaw and nothing will take a bullet there...

Swazi is actually gaining here in Norway, especially the new lightweight version. The guys importing it does a good job of promoting it.

Yes. I once read that "only gunwriters can't kill deer with a 243". I've met several professionals who used a 243 for the majority of their deer killing with no complaints except the longer ranges. So far all my 6mm deer have been proper hunting and not the cull killing which I also do, and the bullets have run through every deer. Eventually I will make a poor shot, and it will be "interesting" to see what sort of sign the deer will leave then. With the 6,5mm it is usually a pretty clear trail leading to a bled-out deer.
