    Help wanted with economical goat and fallow hunt

    I live in New Plymouth. For over 15 years I had easy access to shoot 10 or 20 goats a day on a few farms. All that has now been closed off.

    I am looking for an opportunity to shoot high volume goats - near Taranaki would be ideal but I might even consider a trip with mates to Tamaranui or Gisbourn or similar. I know that some Doc areas still have many goats and it is not difficult to shoot 30 goats in a day.

    A group of 5 or 6 of us are keen on such an opportunity.

    Similarly we would appreciate an economical opportunity to take fallow deer. We are NOT looking for trophies, fancy accommodation, fancy food etc.

    Any pigs? What about South Island?

    20 years ago I used to go all around NZ including the most remote parts of the Motu. That was before kids came along.

    I would appreciate any help.

    So you want chaps on here to give you info on their hard earned spots so you don't have to? Bloody hell the cheek!

    Hi @Nakihunter

    Do you use the goats or do you simply like shooting a lot of animals?

    There's no NZ law against either, of course.

    He said economical, not free, so I don't think he's asking for my spots.

    There are quite a few fallow hunting ads on Trade me around the Wanganui area, some seem quite reasonably priced.

    You are a polite gentleman. Thank you.

    Yes we will be taking the legs, back steaks of the larger ones and may even take a few brains. Goat brain is a great delicacy in some cultures.

    The other arrogant idiot can go and pick fleas off his dog.

    BTW I am 62 and have hunted in NZ since 1994. I have been to Stewart island twice - 2 weeks & 1 week, deep into the Motu and many other wild places. May be the arrogant idiot should do some real hard bush bashing with a pack on search and rescue before shooting off his mouth. Keyboard warriors no not need boots, rifle or a pack.

    Try ringing a few forestry companies most are happy for people to shoot goats but most won't issue any permits to after May now.

    Every time I take SH3 through Awakino/Mokau I see dozens of goats, without stopping the car. All along the river and up in the bluffs. Maybe have a poke around there.

    Not arrogant just saying what a lot are thinking. Maybe if you worded your question a little better probably would've received a better response. Grew up bashing so know about that all to well, and as part of my job definitely carried my fair share of weight over the last 11 years. Seriously who comes on here with bugger all posts and asks for spots to slay goats that is rude and arrogant.

    I’m happy to give out goat spots, fallow spots are another question altogether though!

    @Nakihunter, you might be 62 years of age but even a much younger man might have had the wisdom to keep his mouth shut and not blast both barrels at a forum regular. Especially not in the context of your question . Really not a very good idea at all because you have just gone and marginalized probably 9/10 of the experienced Taranaki Hunters here. Silly and unnecessary mate so start again is what I would do. What's interesting is that there is an adjacent thread asking exactly the same thing with some comments on there that should have given you a hint that a lot of blokes aren't going to cough up their favourite locations. So please consider taking a backwards step and consider the reality of all hunting forum politics, like it or not.

    Mate

    I am not into abusing people normally.

    At least be honest, ok. You need some serious training in manners.

    The heading of the thread says "Economical" and the body of the message says the same. Did you not read that? What more wording do you need?

    You were rude and arrogant first. Now you want to wiggle out of it, instead of having the decency to apologise!

    At 62, I do not go around doing the wild stuff I did until I was 45. I asked because a group of friends from overseas want a bit of fun and are not into hard hunting or spending mega bucks.

    Anybody can ask a question. You can choose to help or ignore the question. You are not the thought police here.

    If you do not like my posts, ignore it. Go do what you like doing elsewhere.

    BTW what is wrong is asking for info on spots? Over the last 25 years I have offered info to lots of people and many have given me info. Absolute strangers have allowed me to shoot goats on their property. Once a Maori Dairy Farmer allowed me to hunt deer on their local Iwi land in the Waimana valley. All I did was ask politely and complement him how hard he worked at his age!

    Basic decency and manners goes a long way in establishing goodwill and making friends.

    Time for you to hop in your car and go make friends with some absolute strangers again, @Nakihunter. Cos that's the way its done. Face to face is the only way. You might get some clues or hints on a forum, but really, the only good way to set up your friends' shooting trip in NZ is to do the leg work yourself. When I have mates coming over here from overseas, I make damn sure I've got everything covered ahead of time. I set up the permissions, recce the land, check out the likely spots, work out our camping spots. A lot can change in a little time.

    One recent example is a property I went to for years. Hadn't been for about 18 months, called up and quick chat with the missus, she said "sure come on down!" but she neglected to tell me about the huge slips, blocked accesses, the washed out bridge and the fact there had been a bulldozer and excavator working 14 hrs a day for weeks on end. Hardly any deer there now, all buggered off. They'll be back, but if I'd taken some OS mates in there with the place it in that state, I would have felt like a complete tit.

    Its no time to find out the hard way that a piece of internet "advice" is a crock of shit, when you've got your mates in tow.

    On a forum like this, no one knows a thing about you, how you present, how you speak, how you look. Instinct is used to judge a man's character, and that ain't possible on a screen and a keyboard. It isn't hard, just gotta make the time and put some miles on the clock. That's just the way it is. The DOC website would be a good place to start your research.

    another thing to consider is that SOME cockies are now rounding up goats to sell at quite a good rate...so they arent shooting them at all.
    DOC Taumarunui could be worth a call re goats and re fallow at low cost...have a squizz on trademe as there are usually some offered on there.

    +1 on the rounding up of live goats. That becomes more and more popular among cockies and economically make sense for them. At $40 a head rather than having them shot and rotting for nothing.
