    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

    Did a big walk through kaimanawas over last 4 days. This rain has made a bloody mess. Lots of popular camp sites have been washed out or are now full of mud . Rivers now have new courses and some banks/corners disappeared. Huge amount of trees down also, what a mess. Allow more time than you think for travel...

    Stags just started up yesterday, end of this week I would guess will be all on.

    Yep there small, but not as small as the African Dikdik.
    These Muntjac run around all hunched over like pigs. Nice eating though......once you get the bloody skin off

    Some scary stories coming out of kaimanawas at the moment. If the guys that were stuck in mangatanoka hut with the river at the door want to post a story it would be great reading.
