    Question Pureora northern block

    Am I thinking of going for a look up tolley road, have herd there are some alright deer numbers up there.
    I saw tolley road in the spot x hunting book. Has anyone else been here to give any tips for the area?
    Is this bush dense? Are the stags scrubby or decent?
    Also I've looked on Google earth at tolley road and can not see how to get to the northern block, is it possible to get to the forest from tolley road or what other roads are open to be able to get access in the bush?
    Thanks guys VERY appreciated !!!!!

    Hey man don't know if you know but it has been 1080' ion the last couple of weeks. Prob best to stay clear for a while. The area is ok but I would take a gps if u have not been there before. U can get to the north block from trolley road there is a small car park with a long drop there. The bush is ok pretty dance in places.

    Ok thank you, as I am reasonably new to deer hunting, how long would be a good period to leave hunting there?

    Ummm, like forever...it is the block DoC and friends hammer the hell out of with 1080...you are way better to turn your attention to the Kaimai's where it doesn't get the same attention from the 1080 brigade...yet
    Which is worse, ignorance or apathy...I don't know and don't care.

    Yip Just been hammered again.... Not the best place to be expecting high numbers even before the 1080. Try Bog inn area but head up high. That has not been poisoned for a couple of years now.
    SOMETIMES I QUESTION MY SANITY......OCCASIONALLY IT ANSWERS BACK .!
