    Missed out on Wanaka

    Managed to get nightfall creek in Haast for first period so have a block

    Might put a trip down south together, big walk with a lot of elevation in the eyre mountains or Takis next door, will bed to ramp the fitness for that though!

    Best of luck for those who got blocks

    Cheers

    Good block. You can walk or fly.
    Harvey Hutton is just up the road at Makarora.

    Cheers Mate, got any thoughts on base camp at the Hutt? and fly camps out from there, it generally looks like it has some good cover up the river. Have you shot that block before

    I have not hunted it on foot but have seen a couple good stags in there before. Good genetics thru that whole area.
    Not many deer, but better than average chance of a good one. Chamois are in reasonable numbers as well.

    upper young is a good block i would get flown as its a bit of a walk and there has been quite a few slips up there one forming a dam and is holding the water up there. plus you would also be walking through someone elses block to get there

    Managed to Salvage the Blue block, 19 for the third period, at the second chance draw yesterday, cheers whoever gave up their block. Hopefully means some noise with the likelihood of a late roar due to slow spring flush and summer drought. Anyone been in here before, looks a good spot.

    My mate just got the ballot for the lower young block and he invited me down, stoked. Anyone familiar with it? Never hunted S.I, heading in for 6 days or so.
