    How's the kaimai's? The forecast was for rain so didn't go. Bloody school holiday traffic didn't help either.

    What exactly is a bonnet hunting pig hunter @tetawa ?
    It's all fun and games till Darthvader comes along
    I respect your beliefs but don't impose them on me.

    They drive along the roads with the dogs on the Bonnet or tray and when the dogs smell fresh pig they wiggle their butts and they slow down. Dogs jump off and go to work. Hunters follow with the sticker.

    Or they rope the pig to the bonnet so everyone knows they are pig hunters.

    I asked in a different thread one guy said he saw one hind. Between that and the school hol traffic I feel alot better about the fact I can't get any time off work.

    That's a consolation ha. Last weekend they weren't even roaring at all.

    Where i hunt its all over for the reds last week, you might get the odd one roar at night. Already seen stags out feeding alone trying to recover from one hell of a party,. Was going to go out last night but was blowing its ass off and woke up this morning to rain.

    Have they shut up in the Ruahines?

    I've been doing other things waiting for the roar to finish so I can have the hills to myself again. Have second week of May off so will go and get stuck in up there while all the fullas are shooting each other in their mai mai.

    So many of us are avoiding the roar and waiting for May before going bush, it might be more crowded in there than during the roar.

    Probably as crowded as Feb was in the hills
    Shut up, get out & start pushing!

    Many Deer in the Big K now
    Most frustrating hunting of my life in Kaingaroa - Deer sign everywhere - but finding them was like there were none there at all (if that makes sense :-)
