    Red face Deer In Auckland

    I had a red yearling cross the road in front of me today, 5 min from the northern motorway.
    didn't have any tags in it either it made my day, Thought to my self you don't see that every day.

    It will most likely be an escapee from a deer farm or the off spring of an escapee. I took a balloon ride from Helensville to Dairy Flat a few years back and saw quite a big stag by itself on farm land just before (and bordering) the Riverhead Forest. I had one yearling stag get out about ten years back. He gapped it to the other side of SH 16 never to be seen again.

    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

    Was south of Tokoroa right on dusk, SH1 on what I call tarpot hill. Car coming towards me flashed its lights and as I came thru a cutting there was a hind about to run across the road, she turned very quickly and ran back into the pines, quite often see pigs on the side of the road thru there
    Boom, cough,cough,cough

    I have always been told that there are no Fallow in the Waitakeres but could never work out why as there is nothing to really stop them migrating from the Woodhill Forest to down there.
