Bryan, a mem­ber of Gee­long Field & Game for 20 years, didn’t even re­alise he was in the run­ning when his mem­ber­ship was re­newed dur­ing the com­pe­ti­tion pe­riod. “I didn’t do it, my wife re­newed my mem­ber­ship, so it was a com­plete sur­prise,” he said.

Bryan used to be­long to a num­ber of or­gan­i­sa­tions but these days is solely a mem­ber of FGA, recog­ni­tion that it is the best fit for his in­ter­ests. “I find it is a good group to be in­volved with and they do con­ser­va­tion; as a duck hunter, I be­lieve con­ser­va­tion is im­por­tant,” he said. “The Kub­ota will be won­der­ful. I used to walk two miles into some places to hunt ducks; I’ve done a lot of walk­ing over the years, I started hunt­ing ducks around Mary­bor­ough when I was 12 years old with my old man.”

Bryan’s other pas­sions are fly­ing light air­craft and fish­ing, so the Kub­ota RTV will get plenty of use.

“I will def­i­nitely use it around the air­port and I will use it for fish­ing as well as hunt­ing; be­cause I can’t walk a lot it will be ideal and we still do a lot of hunt­ing around Moulamein in New South Wales chas­ing pigs. “I have a cou­ple of grand­sons that are also very ex­cited; I think they will use it more than I do.”

Bryan said hunt­ing has been a life­long pas­sion and he takes a gun or two when­ever he trav­els.

“I can’t get over how ter­rific this Kub­ota is, it is a mag­nif­i­cent ma­chine. I will def­i­nitely put it to good use,” he said.
