    Hmmmm your very first post looking for a spot, should I help you out or not
    People are a lot more willing to help someone who contributes(well I am anyway) to the forum and lets everyone get to know you

    I know nothing of the area but check out the DOC website for public land to hunt on in the area, and scope the area out with your topo maps and google earth. You can find free topo maps here LINZ Topographic Maps | Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) - Toit

    Good luck and let us know how you get on!

    Okay OJB this is going to be risky for you for a couple of reasons the first being that I am a North Islander that knows sweet fuck all about the South Island and secondly because I am on old bugger trying to recollect something I was told 35 years ago. Now the disclaimer is out of the way my inlaw's from my first go round were the keepers of the light at Cape Cambell and my brother in law at the time was quite the hunter and he used to talk about the Awetere Valley. I have no idea where he would have meant as I never went there with him but if you are adventurous then scope it out on Google earth and if it looks interesting then go check it out. Of course if someone closer to that neck of the woods (like VC) says don't bother then you need to take heed as they wouldn't put you crook.
    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

    hey there, i am from the north island as well but i did sniff around abit of scrub down kaikoura a couple of years ago. There is a block on the coast called the coastal hunting area. get a permit from doc. park your car at okiwi bay or rakautara stream and head up the hill.
    few deer pigs and goats. most of the locals use quad bikes to get up there but i walked. think there may be even the odd chammey. kaikoura is a big area with HEAPS of scope for a hunt. plenty of places to go. get the the book hunting in nz second edition by mark airey. it is a good place to start, with a few pointers. if you are new to hunting just be careful up on them hills by yourself, and watch the weather. best of luck.

    Hey oljamesboy get in touch with the Doc office down there I found them to be very helpful with putting me onto areas where there are animals.
