    Central North Island, Ruapehu Hunting

    Hey guys,

    I just got back from a 4 day hunt. Had no luck at all. I hunted the Tongarirro national park deep into the 42nd traverse and that area. Saw no fresh sign what so ever!

    Has anyone here had experience hunting the Ruapehu area that could give me a few pointers on where to hunt? Its hard to find access to private land!

    Cheers
    Dylan

    Hey bro why not try the Kaimanawas? I'm no expert on them but it doesn't take much to trump no sign whatsoever over 4 days! Thats nasty

    Hi Dylan.
    Good on you for getting out there.
    If you live in Ohakune you have some great hunting right on your door step. Explore the mountain at the bush line and cover a lot of ground looking for sign. When you find it the deer won't be far away.
    Good luck.

    Going for a bush stalk tomorrow morning. Walking from the Ruapehu Mountain Road straight into the bush towards horopito.

    Dylan,

    Wander over to DOC Ohakune and ask to talk to Malc.
    Tell him his mate from Wellington sent you, and I said that you would help. He will put you onto something.

    Regards

    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
