    Particularly sad in its timing. RIP, you passed doing what you loved.

    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

    Sounds like a heart attack perhaps. Close to the camp and not from a fall. Poor bugger

    "Name release – Tora hunter"

    Police are now able to release the name of the man who died while on a hunting trip in Tora bush over the weekend.

    He is 60-year-old Trevor Patrick Burke of Carterton.

    Police’s thoughts are with Mr Burke’s family and friends.
