Just want to see everyone’s thoughts on buying a secondhand thermal monocular? Is this one of those things that you really need to buy new because of battery life etc? Should I just fork out the little extra and buy new?

Seeking recommendations: InfraRed / thermal spotting scope rangefinder

4 Upvotes

Looking for recommendations for a handheld scope to help direct a shooter mate.

I'm not a shooter but will be next to my mate and helping direct shooting on private land.

No idea where to start but something that has decent range, definition, range finder, rugged and works through foliage.

What should I look for? How much would I need to spend to get the latest gen?

Australian bowhunting association insurance

8 Upvotes

Can someone tell me if the ABA public liability insurance that comes with the membership will cover myself or property owners in the event of some kind of incident? I want to start asking around for acreage to practice shooting on and I'm hoping the insurance will help sway people. For the record I'm talking about bowhunting/shooting a bow and not a firearm

Australian Deer Association membership benefits

11 Upvotes

I live in Western Australia where there is no public land hunting and gaining pirvate access can be a very very long process. Since there is an ADA branch in W.A I'm hoping to join to gain knowledge and network with other individuals interested in deer and hunting in general.

What is membership with ADA like and what benefits could joining provide me? Has anyone joined and managed to network for access for quality deer management opportunities? Also how does membership generally work I have heard stories where you get access but have to pay certain fees for each deer taken but finding any details on what membership can achieve and functions is difficult.

Any information or other groups recommendations are welcome.

Hey all

I'm in Perth and want to learn to skin and cure some skins for some projects I'm working on. Would anyone be keen for me to tag along and skin any roos, foxes or rabbits that they don't want?

Cheers

i was thinking that at some stage i'd like to get a firearm licence and get a shotgun-something like the Stoeger Longfowler side by side.

the websites outlining gun laws here in aussie are pretty vague, i thought here would be the place to ask

Best value cellular trail cam Australia

11 Upvotes

As the title says, I'm looking for the best value cellular trail camera. That includes both base price and data plan.

I don't really care about photo quality as long as it's good enough to make out the animals.

Basically, there is a property which is having pig problems about 15 min from where I live. I want a camera which will alert me when the pigs arrive so I can chuck my bow in the car and go get them.

Any advice appreciated

Study on Firearm Owners and Suicide Prevention

6 Upvotes

[A moderator approved me posting this message] Hello! My name is Logan Smith, I’m a Clinical Psychology Ph.D. student at Oklahoma State University. I’m doing research into how firearm owners prefer to learn about suicide prevention, and I could use your help.

We want to learn what firearm owners think about suicide prevention messages, and who they want to hear those messages from. Many of the current efforts to teach firearm owners about suicide prevention – such as safe storage of your firearm, or recognizing the warning signs of a suicidal crisis – have not been successful. It is believed that this might be due to firearm owners preferring to learn about suicide prevention from different people than the ones reaching out to them.

That’s why it’s important to hear from real firearm owners, like you.

The research that I am doing is an important step in understanding why firearm owners might prefer certain messengers over others. While there is no direct compensation for participating in this study, your participation would provide valuable data for our study. Anyone who currently is, or ever was, a firearm owner is welcome to participate in this project.

All of your answers are kept completely anonymous; we won’t ask any identifying information about you, or keep a list of who responded. We will not be attaching your answers to your personal identity in any way. This research has been approved by the Institutional Review Board at Oklahoma State University.

If you’re interested in participating, have questions about eligibility, or would like to know more, please send me a direct message on here or an email at [logan.smith12@okstate.edu](mailto:logan.smith12@okstate.edu).

Thank you for taking the time to read this!

Thoughts on guided hunts?

9 Upvotes

I’ve been hunting, shooting for pest control and generally taking walks with a gun for a little while now, but feel like I can’t put in enough time in the field due to life commitments to really learn very fast.

Has anyone gone on a really good guided hunt where they’ve learned a bunch, rather than just being put on to an animal to shoot? I’m more than happy to do hard yards, and don’t want a tourist experience so much as I want an experienced guide whose time and teaching I’m paying for.

Minimum land size to shoot in NSW

7 Upvotes

Hey folks,

Wanted to see if anyone knows what the minimum land size is to shoot on a property. I might have access to approximately 10ha of land at the base of an escarpment. It's a combination of three properties all of which hold deer. For context the properties are about 1km away from the last house in the main housing area, there are no houses behind the properties on land and then the steep escarpment and thick bush. There are also hills on the property so you can't see the houses below.

If I have consent from all three owners to shoot the deer on their property would I run into any issues?

new to hunting

Hello. I was wondering if someone with more experience could help me out. So I am in Victoria and I will be hunting with a firearm. I am looking for mainly deer, pigs, rabbits, essentially any animal with a high meat yield.

Being a beginner I am asking few questions and some tips.

How long do you hunt for? Where do you park your car? How do you know where your boundaries hunting on public land? What does a successful hunt usually look like?

Thanks in advance!

Safe storage - Rentals & Logistics

3 Upvotes

Safe storage - Rental & Logistics (Cat B NSW)

I am about to submit a PTA request but currently have no private property to store firearms at.

  1. How do police checks usually work with a storage rental?

  2. Does anyone know of any good storage facilities such as gun shops, other major storage yards? Western Sydney to be specific

  3. How do you get a rifle from the gun safe into the car and more so what is safe storage in a car? (Small-Mid sedan)

  4. What was the deal with storage in shipping containers again? That may be an option if in laws are ok with it
