    I expect that you will get an answer to this fairly quickly JRSWRX. There are a couple of active forum members in the area you are interested in. Both are legend!

    A better tactic would be to go door knocking and approach the farmers yourself, you are going to have to meet them anyway, and you gain more credibility/responsibility in their eyes if you have the maturity to approach them first.

    Gee I don't have anywhere handy at the moment. You could try my mate DOC though. I hear he has quite a few handy animals and he even lets people get out for a walk on his place anytime they want.

    Dannevirke has some of the best DOc access and hunting that I know of.

    1) Drive to a Ruahine DOC car park at the end of the road
    2) walk up the creek for 1.5 hours
    3) Turn right (or left) at the base of a decent ridge or spur.
    4) Climb for 30 minutes.
    5) Sit and glass across the gully below you.
    6) Walk another 15 mins uphill (sorry its uphill)
    7) Repeat
    8) Hit the main east/west ridge.
    9) Up hill again following the main ridge until you find a spur to go back down again (heading for the creek you climbed out of originally)
    10) Repeat the stopping and glassing
    11) When you hit the creek, go down stream. This will take you back to the car park
    12) You may, or may not, be carrying a deer.
    13) This routine does not involve tame (or wild) farmers.

    Take my advice and leave the the farmers alone.to come to Dannevirke you drive past the Tararuas!!!! whats wrong with that place?.And if you "have" to come here then do what we all do here and drive ten minutes to the hills and hunt them.

    No, no Neckshot, there are no deer left in the Taras, if he wants deer he has to carry on to the Ruahines
