    Ruahines - Hut for 2 weeks

    Hello everyone, I am looking for a good place to hunt in the Ruahines that will keep me occupied for 2 weeks.

    Any suggestions on a hut or campsite?

    I may fly in if it makes sense and plan to leave in about 5 weeks.

    Cheers

    I wouldn't stay anywhere for 2 weeks solid. Plan a route and stay along the way. Main ranges make for easy travel over decent distances and the further you get from the hut the better the hunting usually. That sort of time would be worth a W-E crossing.

    You piss off your misses?

    What were you going to do if you shot something on the first day or two anyway?

    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
    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

    Text Neckshot to carry it out for you while you sit back at the hut drinking copious amounts of beer without a care in the world.

    If you don't see at least a few deer per day on the main range you best take up golf, and for the first week and a bit shoot em with a camera to skite on here.
    If you really are keen to fly it will be better to fly out than in. Call Chris Crosse before you go and he can pick you up from most places.

    Thanks for your advice everyone. A few deer per day on the main range. Hmm sounds like high expectations. I am not much more than an armed tramper you know!
