    Very nice sir !! What are the hunting laws like in Australia Bucky...?

    I imagine seasons for this and that...but do you have ammo limits / types of guns that can't be used

    ( ie...how much ammo can be in the firearm...3 round max or anything like that...etc ) Just curious...

    Having seen Bucky mention Fallow Deer a couple of times I looked em up. Interesting looking animals. Large Bucks have antlers almost like Moose.

    Found out they have been introduced to Georgia, Texas, Rhode Island, Illionis, and Michigan. Said to be doing a lot of damage to young trees in Georgia. Says in Europe they get to 220 lbs. How about Australia Bucky ?

    I run 4 or 5 rounds and nothing semi auto, in Oz, or pp action shotguns, since Port Arthur massacre, where 35 people were shot.
    But you can have a pump rifle (ludacrus)
    Seriously, if you can't hit the target in the first couple of shots, then you shouldn't have a rifle.

    Fallow deer all year round, on private property.
    Sambar deer virtually the same, but we can hunt them in the Alpine national Park, except for school holidays.
    Skippy's by permit only, but thousands are shot in South Oz, and Queensland, , for human consumption.
    Feral goats any time, with the land owners permission, problem is they fetch $60 a head if rounded up, and sold to the Arabs.
    Foxes, any time, again, landowners permission.
    Pigs, anytime....again landowners Permission
