    Leatham?

    We're heading up the Wairau Valley tomorrow for some R&R and wondering if the Leatham Valley area would be worth a look for my first look at something. Anyone know if there is a lot of foot traffic in the area at this time of year.

    Thanks Abe.

    Will be parking on the road or close to it as will be in the family van, not the Safari. Must pack some polythene in case I get lucky, else I'll be in the cart.

    Thanks deer243. Will certainly be taking a rifle for a walk; have never been in there before, but can see that changing shortly.

    GM just get everyone to hang on to a quarter of whatever beast you get. Now that would be a holiday they wouldn't ever forget.

    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

    Rushy, I wouldn't trust the buggers. Likely all I'd drag out at the other end would be bones. Hopeless vegetarians the lot on 'em.

    We're nearly ready.

    Indeed! Oh well we made it, unpacked and eaten. Might have to sort some big eared critters in the morning. Got three eager young gadgettes lined up to come for a wander. No one too keen on the Leatham, might do a wee overnighter on my Todd. Packed a tent and cooker.
