    Flying around in a helicopter looking for animals, to then get dropped off nearby to have a shot ! very misguided if this is a representation of NZ hunting.

    Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Nice to see the guide hot on safety... like the big voice-cut to "Safety is my primary concern" as he muzzle-sweeps a client..

    i had relatives from the wifes family come visit from arkansas, they coulnt believe we "bush bashed" to go hunting. they sit in tree stands with a thermos and food until bambi appears, shoot it then truck it home on a quad bike.
    i took one of them out for a farm shoot for a few bunnies and he was knackered after 30 minutes

    Oi don't knock tree stand hunting, only way in some places, though the quad is a step to far!

    To give the guide his due he dose say at 13.12 "can you imagine walking into this country"! The client on the other hand has no clue! As he says at 13.24 " We have a hell of a copter driver..."!
    Came across the same in Africa! Basically no clue of what they are doing.
    Why is he doing it in NZ because there is no way he could get away with doing it in Austria! For the price he payed to drag his .Mac Donald ass onto that helicopter".............




    Better go for a nana nap

    Just finished watching it the guy has no clue on what he is squeezing the trigger on?
    No clue on history or New Zealand way of hunting. His last comments show this in buckets!

    That guide, Four Seasons Safaris, Shane Johnstone (?) has a number of similar videos on YouTube; they're all similar, in one, the American client shoots a Chamois after jumping out of the chopper and the chopper is still on the ground beside him. The guide's congratulations on thier weak efforts is what put me off going guiding full time. I mean, imagine going though that act three times a week; congratulating someone for shooting a semi tame deer in a paddock!

    I can't see some fat yank pen pushing wankers paying top dollar to slog through steep thick bush. Probably just as well or we'd have nowhere left to hunt for free.Fair enough doing heli cowboy shit on private stations but they shouldn't be able to do it in open permit area's.
