    Kiko Road, Clements Mill.
    Both worth a look
    He nui to ngaromanga, he iti to putanga.

    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !

    Adam there are so many other places rather than just Clements road .
    grab a spot x book if you haven't already got one?
    Just pick a spot and get to know it if there is no sign move on.
    look for roads that go into Doc land and start from there.
    I have hunted down that way a lot and I have never been into Clements road.
    Why because everybody else goes there.
    I was lucky I have good friend who is a local down there and he showed me a couple of spots and sent me on a lot of little adventures by marking my topo maps with pencil.
    heaps of spots to camp and hunt thru whole area down to desert road and western side of lake and south from there.
    Think more than 40 mins away from MacDonald's.
    Good luck
    Love walking my gun

    Your onto it Adam,, plenty of deer but you still have to work for them i got my first 8 pointer in the shitty scrub up there, wasn't large but was an awesome stalk
    i think Clements is easier and hence it gets more traffic at times
