    ha fucking ha-about as much chance of me shootin one of those fat bastards as there is me extracting gold nuggets from cowshit.
    read the report -carcasses left in a camping area near moana-any local or kiwis would realise just how bloody easy it would be to chuck em in the lake or one of the rivers -bloody big eels right through there so a coupla pigeons would be dealt to quick smart.this reeks of hungry tourists lookin for a feed and being ignorant of regulations.
    ????hi powered airrifle used.maybe disturbed by someone so they shot through before gettin caught.
    cant imagine any locals being this fucking dumb

    I really cant imagine they would be at this time of year .certainly in the spring when theyre gutsing up large on miro berries(theres god knows how much of that round the edges of lake brunner)and theyre either that fat or pissed on fermented miro in the gut ,then yeah could understand someone yeilding to temptation -but this appears(being my operative word)to be all out of kilter .a -feed??looks like there'd be bugger all meat on either-in fact that last duckshooting outing i went on im sure i saw a kereru get blown backwards by a parrie fart!
    we all know what guts's parries are in a wet grassy paddock-even the hen i nailed wasnt that meaty.
    better still any of you blokes out there familiar with maori customs and food gathering-when did the ancestors traditionally harvest kereru and how did they process them.

    Well what every they did to harvest and prepare them it can't have been that good because..........

    They did not have the secret ingredient

    They had not yet discovered the art of making a brick defiantly need one of those to cook one of them

    Kotuku I don't know the answer to the when part of your question but fifty plus years ago my paternal grandmother (who was Ngai Tahu) showed me how to cover the feathers in a thick coat of clay and put the bird ( complete with gut full of Miro berries) into a bed of embers. When done you would break away the baked clay which would pull the feathers out of the bird and leave a succulent baked pigeon carcass. It was bone sucking good. In or around 1972 a young Private Rushy performed this feat of culinary expertise on a survival course on your fair southern isle and found himself on a charge when the DS found the evidence. Cost me two weeks confinement to barracks and the corresponding loss of wages. As I recall, it was worth it as I had savoured the tasty morsels while others at the time were suffering the pangs of hunger.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Yes rushy -after a feed like that your farts would be real boomers in an ambush Id imagine!(had a mate who lived on rat pack bakebeans-he gave away two of our ambushes with farts that would strip the serratone of a bathroom wall.even the DS staff were gagging
    bloody good initiative that man showed -DS obviously lacking in the humour dept -whats new
    .the claybake method apparently was also used in UK by ancient gypsies who cooked hedgehogs in same manner.given what ive read about hedgehogs though id have to be bloody ravenous to even contemplate the option.

    Yesterday, inspite of his beautiful road in, he got onto a cock bird, who, after three months of harassment was not going to stay put for anything ... up out of the willows and across the river very fast ...

    My great uncle told me that Tui was very nice to eat ... but if you ate more than one or two you would be sick on account of how rich the meat was ...

    Apparently, hedgehog is said to be very similar to chicken ... dastardly little cretins ...

    It's been a slow season for me for various reasons but today was great. The old dog still did a great job on the quail only to have my shooting to let him down. Still got one though.

    And a bonus rooster...
