    About 3 times a week But if you shot 7 day a week just to throw arrows down range and not working on form you will get some bad habits

    You forget all your bad habits and revert to the basics!
    That look on my face is not concern, its shock at your utter stupidity!

    You guys must have lights set up or something. It's usually almost dark in the morning when I go to work...and very dark when I get home (except in the middle of summer). I DO have a few halogen work lights...Hrmmm.

    I actually shot much more last year than this. So far my average is around 36 arrows a day. I try to get out every day, even if it's only for a dozen shots. It helps keep my form and confidence.

    As far as I know...conservation hunting is a pretty new and rare thing over here. Overall you can't shoot anything that's native (e.g. kangaroo, koala)...at least not without paying someone first. Most people seem to hunt the hell out of introduced species though (e.g. rabbit, fox, deer, wild pig, and feral cats...yes...like house cats).

    I think it just takes money to be able to kill pretty much anything (e.g. crocs, kangaroos, camels, ox).

    By far the most hunted game here is pig, though. You see people posting a fair amount on the Aussie boards about killing 20 or 30 in a week of hunting. Most 'hunters' I've spoken to just take the trophy part of the animal and leave the rest to rot.

    One of the guys at my club mentioned that he was getting into salt water fly fishing. He "schooled" me on how fun it is...though I think I'd rather shoot bows, personally. Never been much of a fisherman. I don't care too much for eating fish...and lack the patience to wait for them. I'm a scuba diver...if I want to mess with fish I throw on the tank and make a visit.

    What I CURRENTLY do for a living is nothing too glamorous. I help business work more efficiently (in a nutshell). Think of it as a program manager that does a lot of financial and operational data analyses to figure out what projects should be in the program to best serve our customers and shareholders. I'm now in the telecommuncations industry with accountabilities for improvements across all aspects of the company: service, revenue, construction, design, legislative compliance, etc. If you're not bored to sleep yet, I'll bet you're sorry you asked, eh?

    As for the time...it's GMT+10. At the time I'm typing this it's 3:09pm on Thursday afternoon.

    What was this thread about again? I forgot.

    We have a fair amount of zero and below days here. I get outside to shoot a couple times a month in winter for longer shots, and 2 or 3 times a week at 10 yards in my garage. This summer I'm shooting 3D every 2 weeks. I've only shot twice so far, and it's already helping me range my targets. I'm also practicing in my yard 3 or 4 times a week. For hunting I improved dramatically when I started practicing from the same elevation, and in the same conditions I hunt in. For me this required hanging a tree stand at 30 feet in my back yard. I practice with a saftey belt in the wind, rain , snow and cold. I sometimes ware the same clothes I hunt in, especially gloves and face cover. I have not made a poor shot on a deer since I started doing this. Every deer has been 100 yards or less to trail, and a good hit in the vitals. I've already gotten in my practice stand in a strong wind last week and I shot a 4" group at 20 yards; first try. The Red Pine was swaying quite a bit. I'm sure practicing for the first time all through last winter had a lot to do with why I was still pretty accurate my first time up this year. I'm not a competetive shooter, but I've filled all my deer tags since I started practicing from my tree stand. Have fun, I do.

    Trout? In Australia? I only know of one area where it ever gets cold enough to ski in the whole country. Must be down in Victoria near the snow fields. I grew up near the Ozarks and worked for the Missouri Fisheries Division of the MDC. They have good trout fishing down near Bull Shoals. The rainbows are healthy, but the browns are world record class....huge. Had a problem with them eating the rainbows, incidentally.

    I'd have to ask my brother in law. He's from Victoria and has gone trout fishing....though he never really mentioned it to me.


    As for camels...apparently Australia has the largest wild population of camels in the world. They introduced them a long time ago. I don't think people eat them...at least none I know of. My wife (Australian) didn't even realize there were camels here until a few years ago (since she met me). What can I say....I watch a lot of animal planet.
