    In the end between the 2 of us we dropped 31 goats , 1 pig and a wild dog
    80% of the kills were mine and all done with the 7.62x39
    10% was my .223 my mate was using
    9% was my mate with his bow
    1% was the biggest billy and he was shot with a .22 from 50m

    The best day was yesterday with a total of 11 for the day
    It was a bloody good trip and can't wait to do it again

    what is the rules about storing the gun while on a hunting trip? obviously you cant take your safe with you.

      "usually" the following;
      firearms shall not be in an operable state (so remove bolt, and/or a trigger guard)
      firearms shall not be visable to the public.
      firearms shall remain locked in the vehicle at all times, unless in use (hunting etc).
      ammunition shall remain stored and locked separately from the firearms, (unless in use).

      please note;...........that is my interpretation when i last looked at the rules.
      but i'm in SA,.........things could vary per state/territory.
      best check with your local constabulary.

        Good to see what looks like a Win-'94 or Rossi in the mix (hard to tell which due to the shadow); those fast-cycling lever guns tend to come in handy when you come across a big mob of goats in the scrub.

        Yeah, gotta love the way the media and coppers always rave on about the "dangerous high-powered assault weapons" that fire the little .223rem or the Ruskies intermediate cartridge, the infamous 7.62x39. Even the old and what many people consider to be "low powered" 30/30 cartridge dwarfs the other two in comparison, let alone when you sit a .308win, 30-06 or the 7.62x54r next to them. But that's all fine, since these other cartridges are obviously "low powered" since they are generally not shot out of "evil black baby-killing guns" in this country anymore.
