    Keen to learn

    Hey guys,
    My name is Zac. I'm a self employed builder, just moved to Featherston and have been getting a lot more interested in hunting over the past few months. My wife and I have a 2yr old girl and just had a little boy 8 weeks ago. I'm definitely new to deer hunting, having only shot one hind a few years ago - most of the time I'm only finding goats and the occasional pig. Have been learning a lot over the last few months and am keen to pick up as much knowledge from the group here as possible. Hopefully one day I'll be able to help some new guys out too!

    Cheers guys

    Zac

    Welcome Zac
    Love my kids but they do chew into the free time. Applied for a permit this year so can take my 4yo girl ute hunting
    Rule 4. Identify your target beyond all doubt.

    Welcome mate
    If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.

    Nice! Where do you do that? I've got a 2yo girl who I've started to take out walking in the bush. She loves it - will be great to take them out when they are older

    Welcome to the forum Zac, lots of great people here, and enjoy the Wairarapa. I have two girls 4 and 2 and they definitely take up some time along with everything else that goes on in life. I decided to take up hunting/shooting when my first was born, think I must have needed a hobby or an excuse to get out by myself

    @Martin358 lives pretty close to the Holdsworth area.
    He'd be worth a chat.
    I looked at the DOC Pesticide summaries - 1080 being laid from mid March to first week April over the Holdsworth area.
    Probably be better off giving the Rimutaka's and the area behind Ocean Beach a go.
    Kiddies could find the going a bit tough as it's pretty steep terrain from what I've seen.
