    I have been lurking around here for sometime now so I thought I had better do a intro.

    My name is Dave and l Live around Newcastle, New South Wales on the East Coast of Australia.

    I hav been hunting fo over 20 years. Over the last 5 I have mainly started to chase deer, some public lands but mainly on Private properties. I have been chasing Reds, Fallows and Sambar. Even been lucky enough to drop a Sambar on each of my two trips after them in Victoria.

    I also like chasing big boars in the mountains, they tend to be a real tough and cunning animal up in the ranges.

    My idea of long range is about 350 yards.

    I run two Winchester Extreme Weathers, one in 270 and the other in 308. Both wear Leupold VX3 2.5-8X36, mainly for a lot of in close stuff in heavy timbered gullies.

    Just recently scouted a new block and saw good numbers of big boars a great Fallow Buck and many does.

    That was after a trip to Victoria getting my second Sambar, a great meat animal.
