Welcome guTim! glad to have you here. Do you mean the small axis deer like they had on Maui Hawaii when I live there or some type of whitetail size deer like they have here on the mainland. what calibers are most common down under? Here it's 223 (really too small for big deer),308, 30 - 30, and in some states you must use a shotgun slug for deer. the best deal in firearms here in the US right now the russian military surplus mosin Nagant 91-30 sells at most sporting good stores for $120 dollars. what's the best deal where you're at? yes this is a great forum. I like hitting the "new post" rather than picking any 1 topic or using the search engine. do you have a great forum in Australia? Aloha.

Welcome to the forums. Your gun laws down under are near as bad as California. The upside down state.

We have a few deer the smallest being Hog deer which are under 60kg and the most heavily regulated because of the small population.

The others we have are Red, Chital, Sambar and fallow

I hunt sambar (about the same size as elk :D ) and fallow which I believe are a touch larger than white tail deer. my main gun is a 30.06 for sambar and a .243 for fallow Firearms are more expensive here because of the crappy laws and regulations we have in place

we do have some great forums down here but I also like to see what else people are playing with (read the guns I cant buy.......yet!)

That is a shame, its a wonderfull spread the trick is to use a little of it :p

Welcome to the forums. Your gun laws down under are near as bad as California. The upside down state.

The laws are worse than in California but we make do, change is coming though, we have more shooters than ever before and importantly alot of new young shooters coming through who are challenging the current laws, but it will be a long road

Good to hear that. I'd love to put Australia back on the list of the countries where I wouldn't mind living :)
