    Popped over from the Ahuriri late last year just for a walk, didn't see any animals so not much help though!

    It's not. Ive been there. Was shearing at Lake Hawea in 1989. Used to go up the Dingle fishing. Didn't do any hunting up there so can't give any advice sorry.

    saw a couple last time i was there. No rifle of course. Think I was a bit lucky too, not a whole lot of sign. Lots of grass to feed on. Fishing is good.

    Oh Dougie you should research it.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    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
