    A swede who wants to experience New Zealand hunting

    Hi!

    I am a swedish 20 year old currently travelling on the south island in New Zealand on a working&holiday visa and since I am a passionate hunter back home I would like to take the oppertunity to learn a little bit about how you do it here.
    Everything is of interest and if not I can´t join a hunt it would be really nice to just sit down and exchange knowledge and experiences over a couple of beers.

    So if anyone on the south island feel like showing me some real NZ-hunting do not hesitate to contact me!

    Regards,
    Martin Wallin

    Welcome to the forum Martin. Telling those south islanders where you're at could help.

    Thanks Toby!
    Yeah, the thing is that with some planning I can go pretty much all over the country but right now I am in Nelson and will be here a couple of days before I drive down along the west coast to end up in queenstown in aprox. a month.

    I would really like to see some chamois or thar hunting which from what ive understood is mostly on the west coast?

    Is it just me or does anyone else notice an increase of overseas hunters who come here to hunt our free game and advertise for help on our hunting forums? It's almost like word is being spread around Europe by each one who goes home. Or maybe it's just me just being a grumpy old bastard.

    I know if I went overseas, I would much rather use a tool like this forum to find some like minded locals to maybe share a hunt with.
    Maybe he's looking for the real kiwi experience with some real kiwi hunters.
    We took a canuck out last roar on public land and he was simply amazed at the opportunities that we have here.
    It was a highlight of my roar watching how excited he got with a few reds roaring close by.
    We giv these yanks shit for coming over and shooting farm deer off the bonnet of a truck, so big up to him for doing it the way we do.
    If you in north otago mate, get in touch. I will be more than happy to take you out.

    Im hunting deer and chamois from 25-29 with my cousin near fox on the west coast. Do you have any gear we only have enough for ourselves. We will be tenting. Can you carry 2x 24 packs 3 km?
    p.s. We are not super knowledgable hunters.
