    Hunting in the Coromandel

    Hi guys, I'm looking at heading to the Coromandel for a little bit, does anyone care to share any tips on which blocks to take a peek at or have any suggestions? I am a novice, so go easy! Thanks in advance.

    What are you wanting to hunt? No deer up here and very few if any goats. That leaves pigs and bunnys really.

    I was hoping for goats tbh, probably a little easier to cut my teeth on than deer.

    Square1, IMO there's easier places to hunt really.
    Both animal numbers, terrain and regen bush/scrub.
    Watch the property boundaires, as there has been more than a few pig dogs shot over the years by rabid greenies who are anti hunting and would love to accuse you of armed trespass.

    I took my rifle one year, but took a look at the manuka covered hills and thought 'stuff that' and went to the old man's place at Pauanui instead for the entire holiday.

    Sorry that may have been a little ambiguous, I was referring to goats as an easier quarry than deer I suppose, like I said, I'm a novice

    Thanks for the heads up re the boundary, I will be careful to not let my brother wander.

    Kimjon will have the latest on goat numbers, but from what I have seen and heard, they are thin on the ground since the DOC cull

    Thanks to the sweet sweet advice kimjon gave me, I stayed away from the Coromandel and got my first goat with the Ruger! Pretty happy, and thanks again dude!

    He was kind enough to leave a few actually! I'm not one to take advantage though, I left the rest there for him.
