Yep Tassie born, been here all my life and I'm not moving either, why would would you with the best Trout fishing in Aus, the best trophy Fallow heard in the southern hepishere and bugger all distance to travel to chase them, I've hunted the big Island several times (Sambar and Chital) with some success, it's a nice place to visit, but I'm sorry I wouldn't like to live there :D . I hate the hot weather, I reckon the only good thing about summer is the excellent fishing and the Cricket ;), give me the mountains and the odd snow fall anytime. My two passions are Flyfishing and of course hunting and I love anything to do with our Central Highlands history..........I'll rite some more later when I get more time, I'm just packing up to head for the Shack for a bit of fishing and to sight the rifles in for the deer season :D

Hey all.

I'm from the eastern shore of Hobart and I'm interested in all forms of hunting. I joined this forum to further my knowledge of gun hunting and guns.

Look forward to talking to you all in the future.

Regards.

Oliver.

Hey All,

Another one from Tas here.

I'm an air gun shooter and i got me a Diana model 34 .177 that i have scoped and tuned up to be a good hunting rifle. Got a large rabbit the other night with a head shot from a good 60m out that i am quite pleased with and has got me hooked on the sport of air rifle hunting because its damn hard to shoot a break barrell spring powerd air rifle and to do it well. And thats why i like it.

Hi from Hobart, I shoot pistol, rifle and the odd bit of black powder stuff.

Have just brought 3 x martin cadets which I plan to keep one original, one rechamber to 32/40 and the other dunn, maybe do up a little and sell off or make it a project gun and re do to .357 or 44mag.

I do the occasional bit of wallaby hunting when time permits and fly fishing.

cheers

G'day All,

I'm from Kingston, just south of Hobart. Have lived here for most of my life, but plan on moving a short distance soon to escape the 'urban' feel of the area, get back to the bush.

I mainly hunt wallabies, but get the chance to get out every year to look for an antlered species and his partner...

Love this state, don't want to move to the north island, it's just too hot and humid, nice to visit every now and then though.

I'll write more later....when i have more time...

cheers and good hunting all!! ;)
