    Greymouth area

    Hi all,
    My name is Jack and I'm from Australia. My brother and I came over this year for a sika hunt and fell in love with New Zealand and are dead set keen on coming back If we can avoid being castrated by our missus for another hunting trip (I'd even consider moving over if I didn't have the ball and chain). We did a guided hunt but are really keen on doing it without one this time. We're planning on doing it with our mate so between the three of us we've been trying to decide on somewhere to go. We're looking at coming over in march around the time in start of the roar. In Victoria over here in aus we aren't really spoilt for game and none of us have even seen a wild pig or goat before so if we could go somewhere where we're likely to find some it'd be great but the main thing we'd be looking for are either red skins or chamois or tahr. Does anyone have any suggestions where to go for this in the greymouth area or anywhere in the south island for that matter? Any help would be very much appreciated.
    Cheers,
    Jack

    Jack I just said hi to you in the "introductions" forum and bugger me there you are on the next thread I enter. Mate you will need a visa for the west coast. They love drinking beer and someone has to pay so you are it.

    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
