    I’m like you man i’ve just started hunting in the lower NI – still haven’t even seen a deer yet but have been out 5-6 times in the past few months. Just going to keep giving it a crack, learning every time. Good on ya for filming it and putting it out there.

    Positive point, good selection of calibre. The .270 is a great all round calibre.

    Negative point, you can’t take a rifle out that hasn’t been zeroed or test fired by yourself.
    Hitting a tree stump is no proof of zero. Shots close distance / range do not show proper zeroing. At 25/50m a POI on target can be considerably off target at a hundred or more metres, enough for a miss or worse still a wounding. Regardless of average hunting range in tight cover that rifle needs to be properly zeroed.

    Anyhow best of luck with you new purchase, stay safe.

    Good shit man. Keep going you’re progressing all the time.
    That noise you heard is the deer barking. It’s an alarm call. It means it’s on to you and is alerting others. Doesn’t mean it will gap it completely as sometimes it senses something is up but isn’t quite sure.
    If it has smelt you full on it will be gone and you will either not even know or will hear it crash away. So if you have the wind in your face coming from the deer keep following it mate.

    Fantastic budget rifle. Covers everything you can encounter in NZ.

    Make sure you have a shot at a target so that you know where the rifle is shooting and that you get some confidence. Apologies if you have already done so. The guys that sold it to you may have only bore sighted it. All the best with your adventures.

    I agree that .270 Win is a good choice, especially for red stag and fallow deer. And feral hogs. Where I hunt is also on public hunt land that is as thick as this video is. And I have hunted feral hog with my 5.56 (M4A3 Dissipator from Windham Weaponry.) I have hunted for whitetail with my MVP Long Range 308. I am getting a Compass II in .308 and I think that will be my new whitetail rifle. Light and rugged. Who cares if you beat up the stock? Ordered a Bradley adjstable cheek rig for it. May put on a flash hider or muzzle brake. may not bother with bipods and just practice shooting off my rucksack. In the forest, I use a tripod that I can drape with cloth.
