    His mates saved his life by the sounds of it. Fortunately they has good radio comms and PLB.

    I read this story a few days ago on facebook. It gave me a real kick up the ass and made me buy a PLB.

    I think I read that on here somewhere but it was an account by the person involved not a reporter...But I cannot find it. It was far more detailed and he commented on the PLBs.

    After reading this it was very pleasing to see on the tv news early this week that the Taupo Greenleigh Rescue chopper is not going to be axed by the shiny bums, thank christ for that this rescue is a great example of how important it is for us back country users

    I'd be curious to see if there was an insurance company picking up the tab for yet another foreigners accident in our back country?

    Travel insurance generally doesn’t cover shooting activities.

    That is why you never say that you were "hunting", "climbing", etc. when you had the accident !!

    Same with other medical conditions - you only declare them as "pre existing" if in fact you have seen a Doctor about them !!

    In a civilized and cultivated country, wild animals only continue to exist at all when conserved by the sportsman. The excellent people who protest against all hunting, and consider sportsmen as enemies of wildlife are wholly ignorant of the fact that in reality the genuine sportsman is by all odds the most important factor in keeping wild creatures from total extinction.

    In situations like that where they were prepared for most eventualities and were doing everything right, I dont have an issue with a rescue. I have issues where they are ill prepared and asking for trouble and need to be rescued because the inevitable and very foreseeable out come arises.

    Order placed with @CooeeBay on skippersmate.com.au for my PLB on 9th October. Arrived at my door this morning. All the way from Australia in 4 days. Great service.

    Get one.
