    thedrunkfish, We are into them starting the last weekend of this month, if one of our team backs out then I will PM you. I will PM you anyway just so you know whats going on.

    We are in private forestry and both coastal and inland farms.

    Cheers. Went and had a look in Santoft block 2 yesterday. Didnt see alot of sign, a little bit. Hunted around the lake inside the bush edge and a bit further in towards the coast. No luck. Hope it all goes well.

    I'd say it's the challenge and enjoyment of establishing enough practical knowledge of a new species to allow regular contact for pictures or the taking of an eater or trophy.

    Great having another excuse not to be inside the house

    I never used to rate them that much, just big rabbits in the dunes....but then I started hunting them and realised what crafty, cunning buggers they were and am getting more hooked on them. At least on public land anyway, they sound a bit easier on private land

    I still enjoy the challenge. Still got a few years to go.
