    Boyle education as stated
    Will park for a very small fee / donation

    You can hitch either way from there to trail ends that will get you hunting
    Someone will stop
    Just have a sign saying only need to go 10 km and vaccinated
    You will be fine

    See if you can get a Molesworth block and go for a day hunt. Shit load of venison around at the moment. Anywhere off the Tennyson road or Acheron Rd would be ok

    Most car parks up through the Lewis now have cameras, a friend on the council told me there are supposed to be 50 scattered up through the area.

    @Bos going to have a look around for chamios, part one of the trip will be chasing Tahr hopefully.
    Got enough deer running around NI long way to go to shoot deer and you can only eat so much meat on a trip.

    I think that cameras need to be notified or you cant use the footage for legal reasons.
    Happy to stand corrected
