    Kaimanawa walk

    Jus got home from the end of Clemments mill road,Left the truck at 1800 to walk in the late evening.The dog played up at the swing bridge,again,as the river was low I let him swim across.about halfway to the campsite is a 15 foot dropoff climbing down beechroots,dog says noway.He finely sidled around and came down the spur,he thought he was pretty cool.At the campsite this is what I found.Name:  022.jpg

    Should be able to find out when your area was last 1080d Madjon. doesnt look to have been eaten by anything, most of the hair looks to be falling out ,dead at least a week more if its been dry.

    Yea its an intersting one, doesnt look like its been dead long enough for it to have been killed from that drop. Maybe a month or two max, so old age maybe???? Go back for the jaw
