    A friend of mine runs a helicopter maintenance base in Queenstown. They often track the machines up behind the Remarkables ski field and says he see a few up there.

    Hiya I used to live in Kingston , so head up Wye creek, it's between K and Queenstown.
    You might have some luck up there.
    Hunt early morn and late afternoon best bet.

    Heaps of places to find a chamois mate. Greenstone & surrounding areas, Eyres Mtns, Mt Aspiring NP & surrounds, Remarks just to name a few. Pick a likely looking valley with a decent head basin between 950 - 1350 masl and decent sized south facing bluff systems and go for a look. The best part about hunting chamois down here is there is as much chance as finding a deer as there is chamois in most of these spots. Also, at this time of year be wary of increased avalanche risk, I noticed on Thursday there were some fresh ones which were decent sized in the valley I was hunting.
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.
