    Why, because they have been lucky enough to be brought up in a family that can show them? If they dont appreciate it, they can also choose not to disclose any information?

    Agree 100%

    And I was lucky to be brought up hunting

    Some seem confused by what you are saying, and that just seems to support it.

    If you search newby hunting where to start or something there is heaps of threads with heaps of Newbys getting good free advice on the basics of hunting that can be just as easily read as having a dad show you....In many cases probably better to read it.

    The finer points you have to learn yourself threw experience.

    TIL: reading a book is better than an apprenticeship.

    Exactly my point. With those who have been generous enough to throw a few tips online to people on the basics and how to hunt safely, surely that cant be a bad thing?

    Up to the individual, pretty clear cut really. If they want to name the area they can.

    Turangi Taupo hunting: Where to hunt in the Central North Island

    That's to name a 5 minute search & not in my island I shoot my tahr in the tarauas ...in my opinion some of the biggest limiting factors with places to go for everyone is the limp doc sights that list places to go hunting but have no legal access over said land...ring the land owner for access to public land yea rite.

    The original post sounds much too possessive of public land for my comfort. If you have a secret spot then you are lucky, if you have a secret spot that someone else discovers and then tells other people, then you are unlucky.
    Complaining about them and making out they have wronged you just makes you sound, well, a bit whiney.

    I have heard the same complaint leveled at people who write magazine articles, and I thought the same thing then too.

    AS for people visiting your spots after you showed them....thats human nature. Why did you show it to them if you minded them going back without you? It was a gift of a hunting spot. The purest gift there is between men

    However, what is wrong, is them coming back with their mates. That is a personal affront and an abuse of your generosity.

    I shoot 99% of my meat animals within half an hours drive from home, in spots I hunted 35 yrs ago. They are public and have above average pressure. Yet always have animals.
    I have overtime, been able to sense/gutfeel the perfect time to go for a walk. Moon phase, barometric pressure and temperature all aid my decision to go. When they all come together animals will be out way well after daylight and well before dark.

    If I knew back then, what I know now, I would have made a bit more money😆

    @Carlsen Highway no not possessive of public land nor do I have a secret spot (only the odd one but know it is others also) just very perplexed at the detail people are putting in really, don't worry me where as you still have to know how to hunt it. I have 1 spot that is very popular to the point you almost need to book it, it produces animals if you know how to hunt it. I gets popular when people now you are getting loads of deer out and then less popular when they are unsuccessful.

    Was just a generalisation in the current generational trend and wondered if there maybe a link

    Let's face it, it's called public for a reason. You must never assume you have it all to yourself.
