    2018 DoC Waikaia Forest ROAR Ballot - Block 1

    Just got the permit today via NZ Post - Block 1 - March 26th and 27th.

    I was looking for the 3 consectutive week days but spoke with DoC who said they had ~420 applications so I'm happy I've got a couple of days.

    Any one else hear anything ?

    In a civilized and cultivated country, wild animals only continue to exist at all when conserved by the sportsman. The excellent people who protest against all hunting, and consider sportsmen as enemies of wildlife are wholly ignorant of the fact that in reality the genuine sportsman is by all odds the most important factor in keeping wild creatures from total extinction.

    Yep. It is an open block during the year, but is balloted out over the roar period.

    The Titans and Blue lakes are a no go with out permission from Glenaray, Waikaia has been under ballot for years now which is so much better that the old rock up and away ya go, she'll be right.

    Block 3 is nice block, deer often out in tussock. I have block 1 (the wee one with the hut) at Leithen in the days immediately after my Waikaia block so works out well.
