    Wairere Falls Kaimai Ranges

    Hey Hunters,
    I'm planning on doing an over nighter in the Wairere Falls area of the Kaimais, I haven't been up that way before. Any advice for me before i head out, is the car park safe to leave my vehicle in?

    Welcome Toha. Enjoy the trip.
    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

    I can prob take you up there sometime Toha, show you some spots/clearings/camp sites etc. Wairere Falls to te tuhi track is my playground. You need a gps to mark them on though.
    Also have overnight parking on private land
