We tried a ‘MacNab’ day at Forrest Estate in 2012 and it will go down as one of the best sporting days we have had. I have some experience but my wife had never fired a gun nor held a fishing rod but the day was tailored to suit us both and we not only learned from our day but truly enjoyed the whole experience. A fantastic day!
