    Interesting Trend

    Hey Guys,

    As a hunter on primarily public land is always amazes me how a short youtube search will and can give you some really cool viewing, the odd time you may even see a bush you know. I have however noted very recently the number of younger guys(for want of a describing word) out making really cool clips but naming pretty much where they are and how they got there. It then relates to extra hunting pressure on these hunting spots, not only for them but also others that hunt the area also. Have no issue with naming the range like Kaweka, Kaimanawa, Tararua etc

    So what say you. Yes we should be very descriptive or nah less is way more

    Less is way more. Do the hard yards and find your own spot X. There's enough to go around. Don't spoil it for others

    I'm not shy at naming spots.

    Not to sure I accurately name said spots, but I name them anyway

    Each to their own.

    Cheers

    You're talking about that helmet M.D aye. Little f wit is a know all who thinks he's something that hes not. Hes done 2 vids and they are the only places hes pretty much ever hunted in his life so he not much of a threat. But I wouldn't put it past him to do one on snee rd.
    It does piss me off when I see clowns spouting every detail of where to hunt on the web, especially when its right at my back doorstep and I have to watch more and more traffic go past knowing exactly where they're headed. It makes me sad

    I'm on the otherside of the fence. The one thing the hunting community shouldn't do is cut off its nose despite its face. We need to encourage younger hunters out there other wise the sport will dwindle and die. If giving some locations out mean more people are out there doing it then I am all for it.

    How's it different to the spot X books or the like?

    Sounds like some people are just unhappy that other people are getting to use what is public land that they feel like they have a greater right to that others

    If people want to share where they hunt then that's there business

    I'm with Gibo and Timmay on this one.I don't have an issue telling people where I hunt,what I shot or what I missed and I hunt public land and private blocks. There's plenty of deer for those who get out there. I'm also the same with my fishing spots.

    Yeah hey i went hunting in the blah blah blah range/area is fine, but when you see blah blah range up the hippoty blah road and then on the zippity do dar track and oh there are three over there just under abc peak and this is how i will get there is a bit different

    I have no issue saying i hunt the ruahine and haurangi, and even what road ends depending on who you are, but real detail is just crazy. yup i am into encouraging young hunters too but not on mass as it will ruin spots

    Yes @Frosty that is one of them, and there is another near by i found recently. Not sure if it is a generational thing??

    Hamish, anywhere is already someone else's spot X or in what they consider their back yard...

    My experience is that even if you told me go to this area, i.e. this stream off this track, I would still struggle to find a deer Knowing which area to go to is one thing, finding animals in that area is another...

    Must be tied in with that trend of every generation below your own getting worse....

    Could be generational, used to having things handed to them and the web as a mentor, Haha im not much older than him so buggerd if I know.
    But it does suck when you turn up to a road end in an area where the options are limited and the car park is full,utes parked up in the creek with gumbies walking 3 a breast in hunting mode.Its scary sometimes.

    I took a friend out for a hunt on our property unfortunately only heaps of signs, but nothing on the trip. Any how said friend turns up 3 weeks later with 3 of his mates.
    He ask if he and his 3 mates could go for a hunt. I said politely that he and his mates could go for a walk down the driveway and out the gate.

    Yep hard, thats exactly what happens. Had a couple of my mates break the 'code' like that with me. They never get invited to come along again.
