    hey wile, I think you best bet is to have a look at a few nz hunting guides if you are able to afford it. they will get you in there doing it since you don't have to much time here. yes you pay for it but, you will get results.

    Welcome Wile. Enjoy your time here
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    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

    It doesnt have to cost you much to hunt here Wile. Plenty of DOC ( public) land avavilable on both islands. It would pay to look at where to go before you get here though. I will pm you some links to have a look at.

    I will ask my Nan this weekend for some of his cobbers names, he liked a good party with plenty of booze and lots of old music tunes, i beleve he was quite a character
    He had and Nan still has some very special friends in England, he spent a year there with a family helping him adjust and recuperate after the war and 4yrs holiday with the Germans
