    Deer Hunt in New Zealand

    Many thanks for the kind feedback. As the stag was well rutted up i took the meat to a local butcher and had it all processed into salamis and sausages etc. He did a great job and I've had a number of feeds now as well as giving a heap away to family and friends. Cheers all

    Hunting in New Zealand

    I pull up into the backcountry car park with the wipers battling to keep the windscreen clear of the downpour and the surrounding hills hidden by low cloud. Getting out of the car my boots sink into the saturated ground as I slosh back to the car boot and haul out my pack and rifle. ”There’s no...

    Hi from NZ

    I'm a middle age Kiwi who has enjoyed rambling [or tramping as we call it] the back country since my mid teens. I've slowed down a little, grown a stomach and now have less free time to indulge myself than when I was younger, but the interest remains strong. I'm lucky to have an understanding...
