    Was up there pre Xmas. There wasn't heaps of sign on the river flats a bit in side creeks. Weather wasn't brilliant to be fair. Only one way to find out, go have a look

    There are always deer on the flats but the foot traffic is high at the moment. The deer follow the growth as it creeps higher in elevation. I would be hunting the gully heads and top margins. But you need to have a poke around to find out.

    I would walk about 2 or 3 hours up then find a nice campsite and hunt from there.

    In the past ive found a bit of a gradient with more sign but warier deer lower down. Secluded Light gaps, fallen trees and gullies open to the sun (uncommon) are the magnets.

    Let us know ( in general terms) what you find. Dont need to tell specifc hot spots.

    I've been there a lot lately, always sign. Very busy at the moment though. We managed to drop 2x red's and a sika a few days ago. Far deeper in though, wouldn't bother hunting the river unless you pushed way up.
