Any Hunters out there?

Post by Deadeye » Mon Mar 28, 2016 2:17 pm

So, I have a question, and it has literally NOTTHING to do but Farming Simulator. It always amazes me all the different types of people that play this game. So, just out of curiosity, are there any other hunters/fishermen out there that play this game? If not, or you're against it, I respect that, despite sharing a different opinion.

My cousins fish and hunt, but my family doesn't. We fish a little here and there, but not a whole lot (maybe 2 or 3 times in my life). Just kind of boring to me :) I'm kind of more the music guy.

Use to do a bit rabbit shooting and fox hunting while I grew up on the farm. Fishing was here and there... nothing regular, mainly at surf beaches or fresh water rivers.

Same here. I used to go out hunting with my dad. Deer, foxes, rabbit, hares, pheasant, pidgeon and so on. Damaged my ear shooting rook's with a shotgun and used it as an excuse to stop going hunting as i really grew to hate killing animals. Used to deliberately miss them in the end.

At least with rabbits and foxes, they are introduced animals here(Australia)... so the less of them we see, the better our native animals will flourish. Never a big fan of shotguns, those things would put your shoulder out they had such a big kick. Loved just taking the .22 rimfire.

My dad used to have a semi auto shotgun a long time ago. Pretty painful. My weapon of choice on the farm when i was young was the old 4-10. Used to blast everything with it. Apart from the things i was meant to be shooting (rats and pigeons).

I hunt deer, elk, turkeys, coyotes, and soon to be black bears when they open that season up.

I hunt a lot here in NZ.

I am lucky that I can hunt deer, goats, sheep, rabbits, feral cats, turkeys, ducks and a few other bird species on my farm and often just see mobs of wild deer while I am out moving my cattle so I am pretty succesful in bringing home some meat!
I also cull wild goats for other farmers in the area, most other farmers around me are very old and can't be bothered going hunting themselves so they are happy for me to go and shoot as many goats as I like and take the meat home to feed my 12 dogs.

I have a pretty good gun collection, my main rifle is a fully custom built 243 Ackley Improved based on an M40 sniper rifle, it has a big scope and I can hit turkeys or other small game out past 1,000 yards with it on a good day.
I also have 223, 308 and 22LR bolt action rifles.
I use a Mossberg 500A1 pump action 12 gauge shotgun, I have a couple of barrels for it, a long vent rib barrel for bird shot, and a 20 inch barrel with rifle sights for buckshot and slugs.

I actually just put in an order for a couple of semi auto rifles, a nice little M4 carbine, nice and short and suppressed for goat shooting off my motorbike.
Also have a custom built AR308 under way, it will be built like a MK110 sniper rifle but with a nicer trigger and other higher grade parts than what the military guys have. Planning to run NightForce optics on that and it will be my long range, rapid fire goat culling rifle.
About a $7,000 gun so pretty serious piece of kit.

In P.E. I have used a sport bow, but not for hunting :) My cousins use bows for hunting.

Yes I have a 50lb compound bow, currently set up for bow fishing, I have lots of koi carp in the river on my farm.
Also use it for normal archery and might get into some bow hunting.
