    Howza bout an introduction of yourself. There's some good bugger's here that are more than willing to help, but it would be nice to be informed of where, who, jonre etc
    If you can just be yourself,
    You can be anything.

    Sorry mate, bit rude of me.

    My name is Joe, from Ranui (west Auckland) I prefer to say Ranui so i don't get tarred with the jafa label ;-).
    I got my first gun for my 10th birthday (4-10 shotgun) still got too, my nephews use it now days.
    I was hooked on hunting and fishing from as young as I can remember.

    An opportunity to play rugby in England caused me to move to London.... for 10 years... not too much hunting there :-(

    I moved back to NZ last year, I'm doing my best to make up lost time with as many hunting and fishing adventures as I can.

    Welcome sumalPeoJ.
    My only advice would be to make sure that you remember to take the rifle bolt, and preferably the correct one for the rifle you are using

    In case you didn't realise Pengy, he went to England and came back. He didn't come from England.

    I've never had a water purification system so I don't consider that essential. Might be different if I had contracted something I guess.

    i had an american guy arrive at the DOC hut one day and take no precautions, he came down with giardia and it was not good!
    i think the giardia organism re-plumbs you and connects your mouth directly to your bum, what goes in comes out at surprising speed. poor bastard must have had an ass like a japanese flag with all the shitting he did

    Whereabouts Lower NI?
    If Tararuas, take hot/cold/wet/snow gear for multi-day trips.
    Plus gear as listed by all above.
    When it's dry - Aquatabs or similar are a must.
    When it's wet - tank water at huts is good, stream water not so good.
    Rivers/streams can rise quite suddenly, so limit river/stream crossings during your trip.
    Good luck mate, only just started back myself, after nearly 50 years out of bush.
