Simulated field shoot NZ??

Is there any interest from people here to hold a simulated field shoot somewhere?

By that I mean having a series of targets (gongs or deer silhouettes) set out at varying distances/angles in a field simulation. ie walk a course and shots taken off bipods, daypacks etc

Could be great practise and a chance to share ideas/experience with other like minded hunters.

I'd be keen, depending on where it was, I live in Canterbury. I'm waiting for my rifle to come back from the gunsmith, being rebarreled to a 7 mm magnum. Once I've got it I will need to work up loads and confirm drop charts etc.
I was thinking about taking it up to Kaikoura goat shooting. I did a trip up there in September last year and there were goats everywhere as far as the eye could see, 1k plus.

Have you got a bit of private Property in the Kaikoura area? I love the place but have only hunted public land so far.

No i have only hunted DoC land, Hapuku, George stream and the McLean(?). The McLean was where we saw all the goats.
