    Hi mate,

    sorry for the late reply. I had only registered the day before the &^*^^&^*^*^!!! server crash... i have been trying to log on for the last day not realizing that I couldn't even log on as it wouldn't accept my login details. Anyway give me a call/txt on 021509398 regarding organizing a trip. As I work shift work I am flexible with time off.


    Regards
    Dean

    Been and gone, came out early as weather was average. Spooked a couple on the river flats the first evening, shot and lost a hind up the Kaipo yesterday then saw a 7pointer this morning followed by a hind and fawn. Tried to photograph the hind and fawn but just managed too spook them, a good trip though.

    Thanks for the heads up worms looking forward to heading in Friday is looking like a decent day according to the forecast fog in the morning so going to go Thursday and come out Saturday before the crap weather comes back Saturday afternoon.

    All the animals i saw were down quite low, all within the lower third of the faces. Worked the spurs pretty hard to find animals, were a few about but both parties that left before didnt see a thing. The new tracks quite good, cuts through some nice country so chuck your bolt and ammo in the top of your pack so you can put it in when you reach the doc boundary.
