Greetings from New Zealand. Been lurking for a while so thought I'd better contribute something to the forum. Thought I'd share a couple of pictures from our annual South Island hunt where the main target quarry are varmints in the form of Redneck Wallaby. You can hunt them from spook & shoot through to sniping them from a vantage point which is what we like to do.

This is me from my last trip with a Custom built 6BR on a Sako action with McMillan stock & Nightforce scope. This particular Wallaby was my personal best of last years trip of 780yds!

This is my mate Mike absolutly smashed all of us with two consecutive Wallaby at 900 yards. To make it worse - the good old 308. The rifle is pretty special built on a Barnard action, McMillan stock & another Nightforce scope.

Another mate Nelson weilding his dads Barnard GP07 on 260 Remington topped with March 2.5-25 scope. This is his longest shot to date of 660yards.

It's always a great week away with lots of trigger time & one happy farmer!
