    it is understood the man, in his late 20s, died as a result of a gunshot wound.

    Detective Senior Sergeant Sean Hansen, of Wairarapa CIB, said the man's hunting companion, a 59-year-old man, phoned police shortly before 2pm to report the death.

    No matter how it happened its never good.
    Condolences to his family and friends.
    "Hunting and fishing" fucking over licenced firearms owners since ages ago.

    Dont get me wrong this is terrible and we need to be careful but.... 3 million people will go driving this easter weekend, statistics say 6 will die... Maybe 300000 people will go hunting this roar 1 will die according to statistics... Its like crossing the road its an elemental risk...

    Thats the way I see this sort of thing....

    And I agree Baldbob, there was a kicker to that story on stuff where they said 8 hunters had been shot in the last 10yrs.
    How many people have been killed on our roads by licenced drivers in the last ten years.

    I will say that by posting the above I do not mean to take away or in any way minimize the terrible tragedy of this situation and my condolences go to the family of the berveaved.

    The poor bastards are usually shot by their mates, a lot to be said for hunting alone I reckon.....
