    British Hunter/Shooter looking to work in exchange for accomodation

    Hello NZHS.

    My names Josh, I'm a British guy exploring NZ on my own

    I was wondering if anyone around the north Island (I can get a bus) would be interested in having me work on their farm/ranch/land etc in return for accommodation/food and the chance to do abit of shooting with you.

    I did this in the Australian Outback for two station holders (can provide references) so have basic skills with livestock, sheep, goats, fencing, general DIY. I can ride a motorbike. Shooting wise, been hunting for 10+ years, proficient with everything upto .308 - very safe and responsible shooter.

    This could be for a few days, a week, two weeks. I'm very open minded. Just thought I'd ask and see if anyone wanted a hand.

    Thanks all and a very Merry Christmas. Josh

    You would probably have a few people in north Canterbury looking for extra pairs of hands

    Let us know if your passing through Hawkes Bay, might be able to help you out with a hunt at least.

    Cheers

    Welcome to the forum Josh. Good luck with the search.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    If you end up in Nelson I know a vineyard that offers accommodation in return for labour, Woofer style. He is a good bugger, hunts, fishes etc. too

    Hi Josh I'm in the U.K. Will ask my old man if he has any contacts that need a hand.
    He's just out of Morinsvllie.
