    Haven't got into them yet, just picked off a few fallow and a red hind this year, trying to tee up a sika hunt for next year, rumour has it there are some in the Russell forest if you can get a permit to get in there.

    Welcome, Marc. I used to live in NZ, definitely a good choice. There were quite a few South Africans down in Alexandra where I lived, and all mad keen hunters. I'm looking forward to your hunt reports!
