G'day from sydney
« on: October 22, 2018, 09:09:21 pm »

I'm new to this notice board thing but been prepping for years.
I am in the process of buying a block of bushland so I have a place to bug out to when ready  and there is no need to build on it so it is hidden from prying eyes (LOL)
I am hoping to get to know some like minded people that are fun and sensible but serious about prepping
Happy to help (within reason) anyone
the biggest thing I have seen on many sites is the getting of a gun for its many uses but personally find a bow and arrow preferable as it is quiet. legal to buy and own and easy to learn to use.

Welcome.

You might find bows are a lot harder to master than you think but by all means give it a go. I have both compound and recurve and will say this, I have a mate who was as good as they got, represented Australia yet when we hunted together there was noting he could get with a bow that I couldn't get with a rifle - in most cases I could do better with a 22 rifle, especially once the distance was on the high side of 25 yards.

Not trying to put you off, if you practice religiously you can become quite proficient.

Arkane is right - it really is quite a simple (bit time consuming) process - safety course, join club or get landowners permission, submit license app, submit permit to acquire. As it looks like you are, or will soon be, a landowner the process can be even simpler.

Not sure (and willing to be corrected if anyone knows for sure) but I think crossbows are prohibited in NSW.
