    Question Wanted Nelson Goat hunt places

    Hey guys, me and my mate are looking for a few places (if you will please help) for goats in the Nelson area. We are bow hunters and will be eating what we kill. Working out some of our own places, but would be nice to know more. Any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated.
    Also, does anyone know the deal with going to hunt in forestry blocks (who to talk to)

    Let us know how you get on VC.
    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

    Thanks for that, will endeavor to go there next time. Had a go up Near Rai Valley this morning, only managed to get one small nanny.... It's a good start (My first kill of anything.... Didn't want to go down with a TnT to the shoulder, and had to have another shot which put her down)
