introduction !

Hi guys ( and Gals ?)
just a short introduction ..
I am from Queensland Australia and own a 8000 ac grain farm .
Im in my 50,s now and have been shooting since 12 ..
always been into long range hunting ...eguipment been limiting facter over 600 yards .
at present i use a 25-06 ( aussie favorite ) rem action , H-S tactical stock , Madco 30 in straight taper 1:8 ,Leupold Mark 4 ER/T 8.5-25x50mm , 40 moa night force rail ... it shoots 1/2 inch all day but their is too few good BC bullets to get better accuracy
will probably change to 6.5 x 284 on next barrel as its better known .

most of my game is wild boar and skippys my 300 yard skippy rifle is a 204 shooting 40 gr Bergers ..
For heli shooting boars i use a semi auto valmet in 308

I guess the main difference is i shoot game to protect my crops

I found this site while researching and found it very interesting .. thanks

    We also look forward to hearing how you guys do things.

    I also look forward to seeing hunts from Down Under if you guys will share them.

    My dream hunt is a trip to New Zealand for Red Stag.
