    Fly In Trip? Who with?

    Looking at flying into a block to chase some Sika or Reds. Who would people recommend? Heli-sika? or someone else? I would be keen to know more but on a reasonable budget. Maybe 3-4 guys? Let me know your thoughts.

    Thanks

    I have no personal experience but have heard lots of good stuff about this guy, Chris Crosse. Right sort of area for you as well

    I have flown with Chris before.

    He's a top bloke that you can rely on and I highly recommend him.

    His prices are good too.

    Give him a ring and have a chat.

    Cheers
    Pete

    Your from the H.B. area so it makes sense to fly with Chris rather than drive to Taupo. Haven't flown in with Helisika for a few years so not sure what their blocks are like now

    Was going to suggest those too. They have a lot of animals but can be hard hunting in certain blocks (tight bush).

    Chris is a top bloke to deal with and will put you right.
