    I cant take you for a hunt, as I am an ol'fart now, but I can stand at my back door and wave my arms and point you in the general direction. I will check to see if your ears are painted on though as God told me "I have only given you so much breath, so don't go wasting it".
    Which is worse, ignorance or apathy...I don't know and don't care.

    You are not old at all Spook and you are still riding horses which tells me you are still capable of hunting. Welcome to the forum RODSTA, my missus buggers off to Europe for a month tomorrow so I will be due some serious hunting catch up time from the middle of November. I would be happy for you to tag along on one.

    I would take you down through Murupara and up the back of Minginui.

    we all have commitments in life

    being a dairy farmer i know long hrs no wknds off for mths on end but being outdoors is a joy in itself but then on the flipside with a little fwd planning long wknds off or mid wk time off is often more acceptable and easier for us farmers

    sounds good to me i have been down to waikaremoana before with a mate but we didn't see anything sadly such a beautiful place to go tho and the best part was no cellphone reception so the wife couldn't annoy me on the boys weekend

    Welcome Rodsta.
    A forum trip to Clements Mill Road could be a go one day. Some relaxed hunting, bbq and a few beers at night to meet and greet a few of the guys/girls would be good one day I reckon.

    Welcome Rodsta, If you like one weekend you could come with me on a walk, I go into the kaimai's, I havn't shot a deer yet but am gaining more experience each time I go into the bush.
