    Desert road/ national park area

    We are have some time to kill (no pun intended haha) midweek and will be heading down through the dessert road. We have only hunted on local doc land in the Kaimais and private land areas and are not sure where to go in for the national park desert road area. We can park up overnight. I donít want your secret hunting spots but would anyone be willing to share the best area to go in or somewhere we can go in for a shoot? I assume with all the army area we canít just go in anywhere? Is it an area worth hunting?

    Definitely can't just go off the road mate, one sure way to get in trouble.

    Have a look up the end of Waipakihi rd, not far away and some reasonable river flats and ok bush.

    If you're unsure of boundaries check your permit or check out this site https://www.wams.org.nz/PublicAccessAreas/

    This will give you legal routes in and doc boundaries etc

    Rangipo intake, tree trunk gorge, kaimanawa, and waipakahi roads all available to hunt and all worth a look
