    Coming North in August

    Hey Fellas that dwell in the small island.

    I am planning on coming up for a week around mid August to chase some sika and maybe even some pheasants. I was planning on bringing another fella up but his roster is not suited to mine. I will probably find a lurker from Napier way to join me but happy to go solo if he's busy.
    I would also normally go up to hunt around Waiouru but my contact for access up there has moved on.
    I am considering flying in to a decent block. Does Chris Cross have blocks or does he just use public land? Are they busy this time of year if he has?
    Not keen on using heli-sika for a solo mish.
    Neckshot has sorted me a number for Chris so if he is worth a crack I will give him a buzz.

    Cheers.
    Do what ya want! Ya will anyway.

    Cheers Gibo, I will keep it in mind if I have time. Keen on my pheasants but more about getting amongst those japs again. I will bring the shotty, just in case
    KJ is not a bird hunter or I would hopefully have him sorting something.

    Chris crosse does indeed have private blocks in Ahimanawas. Ring him and he will email you a map etc. Bloody good bloke to deal with by all accounts, although I have not yet met him.
    From memory the blocks have permanent bivs or makeshift huts. Some narly looking country, so may be a bit tough on you mainlanders

    You can get an idea of the area from this hopefully, although I don't have the block maps as they were on my old puter and I failed to back up files before it died.

    @R93 I might be able to get you on base if your keen, i dont think you would need to do a blind coarse with your background.

    You talking training area Mucko? If so, I am keen as. I wont be bringing up a quad so will be limited. Are they still in zones? I can remember the good ones if they are.
    Na, I doubt I would need any cses as I have done a heap of shit at the school of Inf and Engineers they would have records of.

    You're memory isn't too shit then as you're correct. I often see tonnes of birds where I go fishing and it may be worth a walk (the pheasant farm up the road helps).
