    Did you take any of the advice you were given in December last year when you asked the same question??

    Go out and buy the spot x book and a Kaweka map

    Drive to a car park (plenty to choose from) and go for a walk.

    When you are going for a walk, look for deer sign, nice open areas of bush you can sneak through. You will learn something after every visit and you will start to learn an area. If you are not comfortable in the bush, pick a spot where you are hunting around a river or down a gully so you can get your bearings a bit better until you gain some experience in the bush.

    It takes time before you start to get onto animals, but that's part of what makes it so rewarding when you get one.

    Why don't you try to find a hunting mate in a simillar situation to yourself on one of the forums?

    As its been 7months since you asked for a hunting spot, hopefully you should have kicked around and made an attempt to learn at least one area now, why don't you PM some of the members that offered you advice last time, and tell then where you have been going. they may be able to fine tune it a bit for you..

    Nothing is tough about having a 70 lb bow and looking like an uncoordinated praying mantis while trying to draw it back.

    Go up Boar Freak;s road and the last place on the left before the forest park is a few deer. Don't worry about the bloke with the Valmet.
