    Phil's South Island Trip

    Hi all,

    I'm doing a big south island mission this February. On the 30th Jan I'm flying down to Christchurch and hooking up with PerazziSC3 to hunt the Rangitata on the weekend. Tahr will be on the menu. He will have to go back to work, but I may stay on for a few more days. After that I am dead keen to hit the West Coast. I am thinking of heading into the Whataroa and Perth River catchments and spending some time skipping around the huts hunting what I can (if I get a Tahr with PerazziSC3, I'll focus on Chamois and Reds). Would any body be keen to join me on a hunt in there for the weekend (in which case I would probably stay on and walk out later), or even longer? If you'd prefer to hunt one of the other West Coast catchments, I'd be just as keen. I fly back on the 23rd of Feb and other than my plans with PerazziSC3, I am totally flexible, so we could suss out something that works for you.

    I'm looking forward to getting out there!

    Cheers
    Yeah nah bro

    Enjoy your time down there Phillip ..... and keep safe.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    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
