    Geraldine Hunters

    Hi!

    Will start working on a farm outside Geraldine soon. I dont know anyone in the area except for my boss so let me know if there is ever a shortage of beer or bullets in your area, Im sure I can be helpful with such issues.

    All best!

    Sounds like a dream!!

    If you want a humble Swede tagging along one day just let me know.

    Where in NZ is it possible to stumble upon peacock, turkey, goats and wild sheep?

    Goats virtually the length of the country, peacock and turkey would be private land or close to it and wild sheep are rare but pockets exist.

    Boss let me have a go with his shotgun today, got a hare and a double on pukekos. It is so exciting to be out in the field with game-animals you didnt know existed until a week ago!

    Have not yet figured out how to post pics but I have one ready in the event that i suddenly grow a brain.

    Dont forget that pooks are protected gamebirds only took be hunted with a license in season. Don't get me wrong, I don't like the little duckling killing barstards and there are too many of them but just letting you know as you are new to the area.

    At the top of the reply box where you type is some buttons, the one with a tree in a picture frame click that and go from there.
    If the file is to big you may have to resize it, my camera is only 5mp so I dont need to resize at all.
