    Akatarawa Forest

    Any of the Welly hunters familiar with Akatarawa, I have some (offline) questions pls. Access routes, not specific spots.

    Cheers, Eben

    Akatarawa Forest

    Yep, been in there a bit.

    Never seen any thing but goats.

    Pretty wild some of it but there must be something in there other than goats

    Good for a walk with the rifle on the weekend thats nice and close

    Here's one for any of yas heading into the Akas - a map that shows all of the trails

    click on the bit marked "trail riding map" on this page

    Warning - she's a fat file so doubt this will work out on mobile

    Stay off the ridgeline.
    The only good assumption is to assume that movement, shape, colour, sound, is always human. Follow this rule and identify your target.
