    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.

    that is a good idea...

    are there any competitions such as this in the US? sure would be a fun way to practice and learn......maybe shawn could do one of these in conjunction with one of his classes....AJ
