    I wish they would stop calling them hunters.

    Yes i spotlight occasionally LEGALLY but i call it what it is not hunting.

    VC, the problem is they ARE hunters.

    My solo trip the other day, there were 2 guys staying in the hut across the river. They were spotlighting - DOC land.

    The instructors on my HUNTS course were making jokes about going out spotlighting on DOC land...

    I hear what you are saying, but every time one of us turns around and says that the muppet who shot his hunting buddy, the muppet spotlighting DOC land or the muppet caught poaching is not a hunter, we are taking the ostrich approach.

    They are muppets... Here in Rotorua I feel embarrassed to call myself a 'hunter'. Heaps of these twits (older guys too) are out there every second night, poaching, spotlighting. U name it...
    The likes of my late grandfather would be nothing but saddened by their disrespectful attitudes.
    They need a fucken hiding...

    Dob em in. Simple.
    If we cant our own house in order then we cant expect to be shown respect by non "hunters".
    It is no good sitting around and waiting for another Rosemay ives type of incident to happen and wringing our hands and condeming the authouritys for lack of action unless we do our bit.
    Rang over. Carry on.

    I think it is sensational bullshit the media is feeding off, myself. So now it seems, every time some scroggan eater gets a headlight from a turning vehicle shone on them or hears a shot a night, they will freak out and claim they survived death.

    What happened in Turangi was horrible. It was caused by stupid people. However I see it as no different to a daylight shooting. The same fundamental mistakes were made.

    It will soon be over. Once the GAC is in operation all torches and lights will be banned. Only carbide lamps will be allowed.

    If you drive down Kaimanawa Rd and have a look at where that poor lass was tragically killed, you will see how easy it is to happen. It wasn’t quite as it was portrayed in the papers.

    Anyone that spotlights on public land should be dealt to.

    True R93 but it is still illegal anywhere but private property with permission.

    It also Fucks you off when your trying to get an animal in daylight and there is a barrage of shots at night where you have planned to be at first light.

    Dan, I hunt pigs with dogs... now days I don't like being labelled a pig hunter . Long story short I had to take my family for lunch to meet the extended family that owned some land to gain permission to hunt, the other daughter has come back from overseas and has seen pig sign, she told the other neighbour she may have to get 'Rambo' in to sort the pigs out, the stigma comes from all directions
    Although the neighbours and myself had a wee laugh at that one
    The young dog hunters do themselves no favours around here
