  1. Look at the badlands packs as well, zips are awesome and they are comfy as.I have had 2 goats in my 35L pack with ease. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  2. Yeah I've herd they can struggle on the big calibre.I want to put it on my 223rem Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  3. Not sure yet.Have wanted to do it for a while, for redcoats and bunnies .The price and my ability to get out and use it have stopped me from doing it until now. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  4. After some info for mid range thermal price of around $4000 to $5000. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  5. As for clothing Summer time keep it light,comfortable Winter,dress in layers. Nothing worse than being to hot or to cold. As for brands,some are better than others,some are rubbish and some are the bees knees. Good starter kit from Ridgeline will het you out their,I prefer Stoney Creek gear,slightly better quality but also a little more expensive.Swazi is another step up again.SamHuntVic has a good range,and is a member of the site Sent from my SM-J250G using Tapatalk
  6. Forget the insect repellant,any animal will smell that from a k away.Insects and spiders in the bush is part of life.Snake proof gators,probably overkill,just don't stand on them.Dunny paper is always Good,their is something about fresh air and the bush in the mornings.Carry a lighter to burn the paper off when your finished.Nothing worse than seeing funny paper half way up a hill.GPS is always handy.Head torch.A couple of knives.a couple of old pillow cases to stash meat in and keep the flys off. Small first aid kit.Keep a piece of rubber in your pack to start a fire.You could carry so much crap with everything that is advertised these days,but you are best off keeping it light Sent from my SM-J250G using Tapatalk
  7. That just means I need to arrange another range session so I can have a look Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  8. Mine is just a hike pack.I use a black wolf McKinley 75L.I have been keen on a moroka for a while but dont get out enough to justify the cost Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  9. Just got back from New Zealand at 1.30am this morning.All I can say is harden up.Your feet will get wet and so will your boots,do get used to the idea of putting in cold wet boots in the morning.And as for socks,I like bamboo type.They take ages to dry,but they warm up very quickly and are super comfy whether wet or dry.I would chose to hunt mostly in thermal pants and shorts when in NZ,simply because they DON'T have snakes.Over here a set of gators and shorts would be ok in summer.Lets face it,if a snake is going to strike and bite the top of your leg,then even long pants aren't going to help. If you fill your pack with cheap lightweight gear then expect an uncomfortable trip.You don't have to spend big either,you just need to chose wisely.Layers seems to be all the go these days,but I find a light top under my stoney creek bush jacket pretty dam good for me.Sure I sweat a bit in it,but I am always warm and comfy.I wouldn't wear polar fleece outer wear on a pack trip,but I know others who do. And make sure you tape your feet,nothing worse than blisters when you can't do bugger all about them. Keep an eye on the weather as well.We had a bizarre weather pattern this week.Joel and I hiked into a block in heavy wind and rain on Sunday,by Sunday evening it had become a blizzard.It was below zero and the wind chill was making my ears burn.Next morning it eas blue skies amd by 8am I was sunbaking on the deck in a pair of shorts.

  10. Joel has.He had his on in NZ.I found my explorers to stay warm when wet Sent from my SM-T550 using Tapatalk
  11. I use a hike tent,but I am considering carrying a fly as well,as I think it will fit in the pack amd give me extra shelter to stand up in and cook under Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  12. Thats the same pack I use.Carried it around NZ for a week,and done a couple of weekends with it,pack smart and it will all fit easily Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  13. Gday taffy,tell Regan to jump on board as well Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  14. Backpacking,it's not about the meat.3 season tent,a decent mat and forget the pillow,just takes up room.I just use mu clothes as a pillow in a pillow case.You can use the pillow case to cart meat or a head if you get one. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
