    NZ History - Photos

    Does anone here know what is happening are doing in these photos? I'm sure a few of you will know (I've posted them elsewhere in the past). Clue = they were taken in New Zealand in the early 1900's.

    I. Men preparing to liberate the first chamois in New Zealand. They are about to put them over the Hooker River. Photograph taken by Michael Collett in 1907.

    II. Men liberating the first chamois in New Zealand.

    Pretty cool, they are the only photos I can find of releases.

    The animals look too big for Chamois.

    My guess would be either Wapiti or Red Deer release and if I had to pick one of the two I would venture Red Deer.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    If i was to guess i would say it was a red deer release, from what i have heard they used to crate them for transport and then sometimes get housed in stables for a time which seen the death of a few through their natural instinct to jump. They would knock themselves out on rafters if they didn't kill themselves.
