    Wallaby hunting advice

    Marinated some wallaby back steaks and bbqed them last night. Delicious and tender. I want more. Can anyone recommend a good area in the North Island. Closer to Northland the better. Also has anyone eaten the back legs?

    Sure do, though they are likely bigger than yours. I have separated the muscles out and used for stir fry, or roasted, or casseroled, ... Really nice meat.

    They are hooked on them here. TR wants to bag some herself, just need to find some without the matagouri.

    TimeRider doesn't like the matagouri, doesn't like the pointy bits on it, nor spaniard, bush lawyer, ....

    When madJon moved down here he thought our lakes were closed to hunting over summer. Yea within 200m of a track not the whole national park.
