    Mint spot huh. We had first period a couple years ago and had deer sleeping on the hut clearing every night. I think I might have a photo of a deer standing around the same place as the one in your fourth photo!

    Saw a few reds roaring on the way in, and a couple more up Kay Creek. Also saw some chamois up Kay Creek, one I chased for a day but he got the better of me.

    Interesting walking in and out with a large number of trampers around. Most were really good and foreigners were genuinely interested in our hunting adventures. We got rarked up by a couple of old boy trampers (think they were gay vegans) when we told them we'd only shot one deer for meat. Apparently hunters only have ourselves to blame for cullers being sent into cull deer (long time since this happned?) and 1080 being dropped to control numbers. And we are just whinging bastards who want all the access in the world to good hunting areas, but don't shoot the deer that are there, so basically are the cause of the deer problem in NZ, so we should be booted out of the backcountry for not "doing our job". I asked him why he thought trampers had more rights to the back country than us, sarcastically told him he was probably right about not shooting enough deer, then asked if he wanted some venison back steaks so I didn't have to carry them out of the valley and he told me to get F'd! Hahaha. F'n weirdos.
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    I showed a couple of the trampers at the hut some of the photos as they said they never saw any deer when walking, they were amazed at how well they blend in. It's a bit embarrassing the number of animals seen for the week in there as you say @JoshC we should be knocking a few more over. Might chopper in there next time

    Man that is awesome country you were in Shootm Never been in that country myself but sure would like to some day .. good to hear deer numbers are good. Is there a restriction on animals that can be taken, like mature bucks only or can you take anything?
