    I hate to see young trees browsed upon by deer. I love hunting, I love the native bush too.

    regarding those water buffalo-darcy craze at barrytown on the westcoast had a mob on his farm,supplying cheese &meat to his restraunt..ive got a mate who was a good mate of his.says the steak off those buggers is superb.regarding those moose-Dundees hacienda would be ideal as a liberation point-,moose being adept in water could share his duckshooting ponds with those bloody eels outside duckshooting season of course.
    young sean dundee knows a bit about rabbits ,goats etc so he'd school up pretty easy on moose.
    Whats that;"no sean ,you cant take a moose to school for pet day . ......bugger me first bloody mallard i ever shot that had bloody great danglers&horns,......how the hell can I modify one of these to tow the bloody decoys round the pond"
    of course every scheme has a hitch and I know youre waiting
    WTF will watties taste like on moose???

    Everyone is looking in fiordland but really the main herd is in the Whitcombe, keep it quiet though.

    I actually do not know EeeBees as I have never harvested the velvet from my stags. This is a near neighbours stag and he does harvest so it is interesting at he has not done so with this. I was up the back of his property this afternoon and he has another up there that I reckon is even bigger.

    I sometimes ponder the reality that moose once used to roam freely up and down family farmland on the Hokitika river, especially when having a lull in the action on the duck ponds. A cow moose is said to have lived in the area quite happily raiding gardens and such till the mid 30's

    One old story I was told by an old culler/hunter of the area was that a moose was killed up the Hoki somewhere by a tramper, who stabbed it with a poker through a hut wall as it was itching itself on the hut. They didn't know what it was, and shat themselves. Not sure how accurate it was, but was told to me by someone who was trophy hunting the area at the time.
    A bloke, Pfahlert told me. Most likely a relly of yours TB? He is long gone now. His heads must still be around somewhere. He had shitloads of them.
    Once had a drink with Percy Lyes talking the old days as well. I served with one of his grandsons in the army. The other is or was a local cop.

    Charlie Pfahlert? My great grandfather. I have some awesome photos from his hunting days up the Whitcombe, photography section over at 'the other pub'.
    Was just up the Whitcombe last night, was dreaming of how amazing it would be to come across a set of old moose antlers under a rock somewhere in there. There is a moose creek not far up the actual hokitika river that I have often wondered about how it was named.

    The big swamp behind rapid creek hut would be just the spot for one!

    Andy and Brett's Granddad. It was in the mid 80's so I cant remember if it was Charlie. I remember all the huge heads he just had lying around the yard. Andy used the house in the 90's I have not caught up with either of them for a few years.
    Andy sort of gave up hunting after he was married. We used to get up to no good together.

    That was Charlie. Never met him but inherited his old pics and Brett or Andy has a head or two of his still. Some of my pics have the same background as his, he in 1930's with the three-oh, woolen tee and canvas tent and Me with a Hughes 300 and an ar-15... How things have changed.

    Would be great to get some solid info on sightings up the Whitcombe.

    They were released at vine creek near or on my father in-laws run off. They hung around for a few years by all accounts. I should pic his brains about it a bit more.

    Charlie lived at Kaniere round from where our place is now?
