    Goats - Marlborough/ Murchison / Nelson ?

    Iím back in NZ in October and thought Iíd give my new rifle a bit of a shakedown trip before a planned big effort on Deer over summer .
    Its been years since I shot Goats and was wondering if anyone can give a bit of advice on areas holding reasonable numbers of Goats .
    Im not after someoneís special spot , just broad info on areas to study up on .
    Anywhere in the top of the South is fine and Im planning on spending 4 or 5 days away so Im not really interested in easy access ( day hunt ) , a bit of a walk in is actually what Im chasing , and will fly camp .
    Years ago we used to shoot Goats up near Murchison ( Six Mile area ) anyone know if there is still Goats in numbers there ?
    Any info would be greatly appreciated, I just dont want to get to an area and find DOC has cleaned them up or something .

    Heard there was a huge mob up MT Murchison, be worth a look. Six mile doesnt have that many anymore but theres always one or two up high
