    Look at the Rod and Rifle website for their resources. If its your first time just put them all down so you get a good chance of getting any block.

    Had a mate that got the BillyBurn last year for the 2nd period and out of 6 hunters only 2 seen animals (both red stags) and they were miles away when seen. He also recons that there were footmarks everywhere (more that can be made by the first period hunters)
    I ve walked along catseye bay a few years ago now (without a gun) during the roar and the hoofmarks on the beach were massive i took photos but the camera was destroyed when the dingi fliped in the surf on the way out.

    As Wildman says ... Rod and Rifle mag has been doing articles on the blocks one per issue for a while now they are worth a read!

    Another note on that one is that the red stags didnt start up untill the last day of the trip so dont be too keen to jump at the first period but depends on the season i guess. dunno if the wapati start earlier or what to be honist
    Hope this has not confused you too much!
