    Put the boat, collars and gps aside and they have been dogging deer on horseback for ages. Very effectively too. Might not be your cup of latte but it is old school. No harm in using modern tech to do it better

    So whats that, is it basically running a deer down using horses and dogs and jump off and run its throat?

    Usually shoot them, some dogs bail them, some pull them down. Itís not my thing, but I view it the same as pig hunting.

    ok I actually watched it...hunting with tui sounded and looked good. she not a very experienced huntress,has her young daughter along.
    maori chap used his dogs to "course" chase deer and he tracked where they were on gps...they rode around on horses to cut deer off when it came out in open/river flats. Tui pulled off a good shot to cleanly kill deer. it was retrieved on horseback,she gutted it with daughter helping.then carried it back on horseback... they hung it over night..had wee look next day,then looked at some medicinal properties of plants...put deer on jet boat and went home.

    yes not everyones cup of tea

    high point was seeing a host on maori tv who can actually shoot. stuff all sponsers adds... Tui not eggzachary hard on the eyes.

    Pig, deer, all animals have sense of pain same as us. Do the deed ethically and quickly. Leave the dogs out of it, hunt with a rifle.

    So the animal is stressed to hell when you kill it after being bailed up by dogs, horses etc?

    Sorry, just trying to understand this method of hunting.

    I visited some friends of friends up in the central North Island and that's kinda what they did. Had a half dozen hunters with radios and gps tracking, and waited for the dogs to chase a deer past. Then someone tried to drop it on the run. It's not something I'd do...but hey...when in the North Island...

    Don't forget that they are hunting for food.
    More "ethical" than hunting for sport.

    The early Hunting Aotearoa had clip on Howie up the Motu with Milton Kiri hunting deer via jet boat. As a result took my sons for a jet boat ride up the Motu with the operator up the Coast from the Motu.His cousin is Willie Apiata. What a top bloke and fantasic trip.Crikey it was about 14 years ago.
