    Kaweka's

    Hey Guys,

    So just looking for a few suggestions as to hunting the Kaweka's.
    Since my usual haunts have been bombed by 1080 and I can no longer take the mutt for a walk in there till its all gone I'm looking for suggestions about somewhere I can go in the kaweka's for a bit of a change of scenery.
    I've only ever been into this range once before and that was into the kiwi saddle area in the spring. Its is a very long drive for me to get there. What would be the closest place in the kaweka's for me to access from taupo? Any suggestions would be appreciated and I may be able to help you with some places to go in the kaimanawa's in return.

    Cheers.

    Ahimanawas may be a good start. Closer and has good numbers and the occasional Red.

    Agree. Watch out for stinging nettle though, there's plenty. And its what shot deer like to tumble into. Although it dies off in the winter. Autumn is a bitch for it in there.

    Bloody Ongaonga is alway just where I reach out to grab when jumping across a creek! Prick of a stuff (if you''l pardon the pun).
    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
