    Dry set of clothes, depending on weather. Nothing worse than sitting around in a hut in wet smelly shit. You never know your future partner could be bunking up next to you.��

    I like to travel light i mean whats 1 night in the bush people tend to overthink & take far too much stuff , i wear my main clothes on at all times unless i get wet my spears are simply polly props top & bottom so i have dry clothes to hop into the sleeping bag , do carry a couple of spear socks , warm hat dont over complicate things battery banks are handy mate takes one to stewart island but for a overnighter or 2 ...dont think so id rather toss a couple of cans of beer in , for convince i take a couple of 2 person dehydrated meals encase i stay an extra night plus dont need plates only a fork & coffee cup i used to have a large coffee cup that doubled as a billy , muesli bars & mandarins , chocolate & those handy coffee latte sachets ...lots of them , iv got one of those multifule cookers so i dont bother with spear fule just a tank full is enough for a couple of days , always take my plb , mag of ammo & 5 spears and just my regular hunting kit , i like my 75L pack so when i set up camp i empty the contents in the tent or hut and its then the day bag.

    Used to take some Imodium along. One trip a fellow hunter had gyppo guts which crippled him and we had to evacuate him as a matter of urgency.

    Dried sausage (wors) and biltong is light and extremely satisfying. Need to ensure there is plentiful water as the salt dries one out big time.

    Dehys donít take up that much weight and water in the scheme of things, if you havenít got enough water to cook a dehy then your probably not going to go to well hunting and camping from that spot regardless.

    I make sure I have that in my kit too, I've vacuum packed the different drug strips and colour coded them in case I lose my "optics"

    Do you mean Wairere falls? It would be far quicker going up the Te Tuhi track.

    It is like Queen street. Basically as busy as clements mill but with day hikers.

    The council do have cameras in the car park and their's heaps of people around.

    Te Tuhi road end should be all good. Far less busy than Wairere falls and much closer to mangamuka hut

    Keep in mind that at this time of the year the cloud will probably be down along the Kaimai tops most mornings, if it is clear up top and you can look down on the Waikato side and it is fog bound down there that fog will lift usually mid to late morning and put you back into cloud like conditions for maybe a couple of hours...there are two cameras at Waharoa aerodrome, one films the area you are headed for...there is a weather station owned by local hang gliding club and assessable online...yr.no website can give you up to date forecast if you give 'kaimai tunnel' as reference point, that site also gives Waharoa aerodrome cameras...don't be put off by low cloud as the stags love it, you just have to bear with it.

    Te tuhi rd end is safe. Wairere is an easy walk just get in early so you dont get stuck behind 1000 slow walking trampers. Lots of animals up wairere as well if you just set up a fly camp rather then walk all the way to mangamuka from there. Make sure your gps/ map and compass are working or things will get cunty quickly

    Had quite a bit of water but those meals just seemed to suck it up. Had easily enough for normal day hunting and some extra for coffee and cup a soup type of thing.
    Compared to having a bit of steak and some potatoes and baked beans which gave more energy and not use any water.
    Find dehy meals warm you up and fill a bit of a gap they are low in energy for what you are doing. With the weight carried with the water you carry far more calories in the other food.
    Not a criticism just an observation from recent experience.
    Gun control is using both hands
