    Yea strange aye. Maybe the family thought they were taking the piss or hoped they would make it out on their own. Hope they had a survival blanket with em. Mine lives in the bottom of my pack with a lighter and other bits an bobs.

    Rusky - check or replace your survival blanket. You don't want to be in a situation where it is needed only to have it disintegrate when taking it out

    Missing hunters Mark Cooksley, 44, and Nathaniel Lane, 20, have been found.

    The pair walked out of the bush and approached the owner of a house in the Kaimai Range where they called family to say they were safe.

    Family and friends had been anxiously waiting at the Whakamarama Rd entrance to the Kaimai Range where the pair were missing.

    Yep have heard how they do that over time and become just hand sized squares.

    Great result them making it out. I reckon you can't get too lost in there. Take a bearing and keep walking, eventually you'll pop out at farm land.

    How the flying forskins can any hunter get lost in the Kaimais?
    pick a line and walk, it is not rocket science!

    I hunt often in the kaimais, and fail to grasp these situations.

    Bitch at me as you will, however I stand by my post.

    Im pretty sure its by having a attitude like that.
    If god didn't want us to eat animals he wouldn't have made them out of food.
