  1. Zoomed in the sight picture was shaking like a mad woman's custard. Also 1500m is approximately 1400m beyond my ability

  3. Those are all standard mapping file formats. Basecamp is the Garmin software if I remember correctly. In the past I’d have said using your phone for GPS work was a good way to getting horribly lost. But the new phones with apps like Avenza are pretty bloody good. A dedicated GPS still seems to have more features but as far as working out where you are, Avenza (and probably some others) are really reliable. I’m still not at point where I’d trust a phone without a GPS with me so Garmin is the one I’d go with. Whatever model you can afford but a touch screen is highly recommended. Scrolling through letters one by one like you had to on a 1990 era phone is tedious…

  6. I had a quick sit on the one, on display. Bloody good for the price. So got one for the kid for her backpack hunts. Well worth a look at instead forking out $$$$$ for a helinox seat to save 400g, in saying that, Duncs you need to sit in "chair one XL"

  9. Hi, I am after some advice on which handheld GPS devices to buy suitable for hunting on public lands that meet the DPI requirements. Looking to spend $350 max is this enough? Apparently these need to be compatible with: GPS devices running MapSource software (.gdb files) GPS devices running Basecamp software (.gdb files) GPS devices running Google Earth (.kmz files)

  10. I find the best thing for meeting the requirements is just use the Hunt NSW app that you use to book public land hunting. It has the forest boundaries in there maps and shows exactly where you are. Then just buy whatever gps you want.

  12. On top its a Hikmicro Stellar 50mm Objective lens 12 micron screen with 640 resolution I tested it over the weekend and could clearly pick-up a guy on bike 1500m away. (Scope unmounted) Absolute game changer first the fox and roo crowd Oh and Warne rings and mounts on my shitty Mossberg 30 06

  13. good post matt. i bought an ebay one a while back, they're ok, not like a full size camp chair but better than sitting on the ground. still haven't used it yet, i've been leaving it out to save the weight.

  14. Another thing to think about is what you wash your gear in. Most popular washing detergents have brighteners in them which (I’m told) make them far more visible to animals. Which isn’t really what we want I use “sports wash” which is brightener free

  15. For the tropics.......I pretty much just use khaki or green cool wear clothing from the safety clothing shops now, they specialise in cool wear clothing for the tropics and you can try them on before you buy. If bow hunting I have some Natural gear, the pants are great, the shirts are too thick for the tropics. Also been experimenting with shorts and knee high gaitors, when its raining or the long grass is wet I think this maybe the way to go because the gaitors don't hold water. Ohh nearly forgot, most importantly, Step One boxers to avoid jock rot and monkey butt 😀 that will ruin any day in the bush haha

  16. i've found thermal bottoms with dry seat shorts and gaiters great. fleece jumper when it cool works well, decent warmth and lightweight, thermal top if its really cold or sit and wait. (this is for sambar hunting) i could probably improve a bit with some of my clothing, so maybe ill pickup some tips out of this thread too. warm, lightweight, low bulk and durability are all high on my priority list.
