    Looking for properties to hunt within Taranaki

    Hey guys I am just getting my two sons into some hunting and looking for some properties within Taranaki where I can take them to do some goat hunting. There attention span is a bit slim and they get tired of hunting the tight DOC bush blocks. With the amount of goats we see on farm land just from the car there must be a few farmers wanting some culled.


    Thanks

    So you are looking for a farm the lazy boys can shoot goats from the vehicle?

    Probably not too many farmers from Taranaki reading this Forum hthomas.

    Actually probably not to many farmers from Taranaki that can actually read

    Best thing to do is go knock on their door and say G'day.

    If ya kids attention span is a bit slim best leave them home with their mother.

    No sense in fu*king up everyones day out hunting.

    Cheers

    Most kids with ADHD have short attention spans but not really a reason to just give up on them. Will go out and do some door knocking and see where it gets me.

    cheers

    Don't be a dickhead spook like he said he's just getting the young fellas into hunting and bashing round doc blocks all day without seeing anything can put kids off real fast!!!
    it amazes me how many clowns on this forum knock you for asking questions like that when naturally wouldn't a hunting forum be the best place to start when you're looking for a helping hand??
    good luck mate just keep knocking on those doors and hopefully someone will give you a chance.

    Hey...just ask around they can only say no. They all won't say no....good on you for getting out with the kids. Shame on you p 38. If it's a kids hunt.. It requires kids.

    Your not going to be lining up in the dole queue are you.???
    A $6 p/kg payout is hopefully above the break even point???

    Cocky's got to make some good dough cause they plow it straight back into the business.

    Keep your chin up, it will come right.

    No points for trying to be sarcastic

    I've had good luck with door knocking as an unkept-looking Canuck wandering around looking for turkeys to blast so I'd imagine a father with two boys will have an easy time of it

    Sorry I can't be of any real help.
