    I am not dead yet

    I am not dead yet, but yet I am in paradise. Anyway that is how I feel.

    What a great country you Kiwis live in, I am envious. I am now 12 days into my 2 month trip here in NZ, and what a 12 days it has been.

    I have been on several hunts all successful but one ,and that one was in its own way successful to, because it was a Tahr hunt and though I did not shoot a thar I spotted several. That alone was worth the sore feet and the blisters (hunting in the mountains is hard on an old fella from flat country)

    So far i have shot wallaby, Hare and rabbit and I have caught Salmon and Trout. Wallaby and Hare makes a great stew and NZ Rabbit is delicious.

    A big thank you to all the Kiwi hunters I have met until now (hope to meet more) To the guys that took part in Stugs big bore shoot and wallaby hunt in Kurow, and to the two fantastic fellas who took me with Them up the Macaulay river to the hut where we had 3 amazing days Tahr hunting. I hank them for patiently waiting for me when falling behind and pointing out the tahr for me (hard to spot for untrained eyes)

    I am now roaming around the south Island in my campervan enjoying my self and exploring the country, hoping that more hunting opportunities turn up.

    Cheers The short Dane

    Good to see that you're still roaming the country seeing the sights, smelling the scenery and tasting some of our animals.
    Just remember, make sure the wallabies are DEAD before approaching. They're tough little suckers and will have you if you're not careful

    Good to here from you again peder,
    Were are you now, if you keep this thread updated, on your where abouts, (location), sum good buggers on here, might give you sum pointers, or take you out for a hunt.
    I am one of the guys, who went up the Macaulay, and had a couple days around twizel, fishing and rabbit hunting, he's a tough old bugger, North Sea fishman, his whole life,
    If he's in your area, and you have the time, show him what kiwi hunting is all about, be it a opossum, goats, deer, turkey, small game,
    He cooked up every thing caught and shot, and we had a few laughs on rabbits, (make sure he takes his glasses)

    Nothing is tough about having a 70 lb bow and looking like an uncoordinated praying mantis while trying to draw it back.
