    Lots of restricted area on both sides of the road.
    Real guns start with the number 3 or bigger and make two holes, one in and one out." -

    Gapped Axe is a local down there. I am sure he would put you on the straight and narrow
    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

    If youre driving all the way from Auckland there are much more productive places to drive to in the same time frame

    This is about 35 mins from my place and even i dont bother with it unless im keen for an avo walk. They are there (deer) but the blody woblies are always scratching round and make it hard because you spend your day sneeking up on another "fulse alarm".

    It is nice country to wander around in tho.

    The best areas i have found are to walk from the boat ramp at Okatina round to the other side of the lake and head up hill from between the two lakes.

    I used to live not far from it 2SK, never bothered either. Much more productive places to be. And if your looking for spot Xs sorry, I was referring to the old favourites everyone know about.
