     I heard a whisper a couple of months ago that Mt Eba Station might be going on the Market soon ....... It's bigger than Belgium in land mass ! Victoria River Downs (VRD ) used to be bigger again & Commonwealth Hills (Censored) used to be the Biggest Sheep Station in the Southern Hemisphere & when they divided it up what were out stations or depots became large stations in their own right ! Around here a 10 acre block would set you back about 90k at the moment on the outskirts of Quorn

Star mate  if iwas still single i'd be in faster than a robbers dog.obviously SA has changed with another 25yrs of maturityIts funny but I'm from the South Island West coast of NZ. in fact this is the authentic  kiwi "COAST".When Irode through thay country particularly around Port Pirie,Pichi richi gorge ,gladstone(OURS is 10km from greymouth)and ?warmington amongst others ,it so reminded me of home.The land is so eerily similar to parts of the Grey Valleywith the gentle rolling pastures and topography.Id love to take up the offer and in return should ya ever venture this side of the ditch ,the door is always open ,yar as welcome as flowers in may,and put the bloody jug on.
   this is gonna be a bloody cracker wee forum i can feel it.
IF you lot promise NOt to laugh I may just  show you my bipods and how i builds em!all right polite sniggers are allowed.
  hopefully also now shamu and co have put me on the right path re bedding the barrel on ma "ELEPHANT GUN" i may show ya some photos of the wee soul once its sorted.Maimai

    Mate there is nothing wrong with 'Bush' engineering ! I build bench rest stands out of Old Scissor Jacks !  I had a Mate that came from Nelson over your side of the Creek & he showed me photos I fell in love with the Place ! It's Funny to hear the Pichi Ritchi Pass called by it's proper name as we just refer to it as the Pass or the Quorn Pass. I shot it for years ,I'd shoot down to a place called Woolshed Flat & a Mate from Port would shoot from the other direction . We had Permits to shoot from the Road & when we got out of the Industry no more permits were issued ! Now of a Night it's not uncommon to see about 200 Euros (a Breed of Roo ) between the Port & Quorn ! Makes driving a Bloody nightmare of a night !

You two are way ahead of me!
I'm still using a pair of sticks & some parachute cord.
 
I have thought about making something out of metal,but so far no action.

Davey mate, i'm thinkin......if these Euros arent too big a very good contraceptive/road clearer /behaviour modifier is a bloody big black 4x4 tyre rotating at 100km/h plus.In Kiwiland we have a native of yours-Mr Opposum (me call Jacko) and these wee b....ds are very prone to circular condoms if ya get the drift.Buggers carry Bovine TB so are class A pests.Fur is Now worth $105.00 a kg.
    Guys ,just getting my daughter to check out the system and we'll attempt to upload the photos of my beauties.MAIMAI

    Both the Cook & I have Roo f**kers on the front of our cars (Roo Bars ) but the daughter has got a little Ford Laser & I haven't got round to fitting one to her car yet . A Euro can grow up to around the 50-60 kg mark & I have always maintained kilo for kilo their tougher than hitting a Red or a grey in the same size.  Bloody Possums!!!!!!! Bloody scurge of the earth ! We don't get em round here thank god ,but their protected over here & seem to know it !  I remember yrs ago they used to bring Big money over your side of the creek !

I would agree on the Euros dave, they are heavy roos for their size and no matter how hard times are they are always in better condition than any other roo.
