    Last year up lake Rotoroa( the Nelson one keep hearing of one up north as well) was up there from the 14th to the 20th and they were rutting but not roaring(dont seem to be very vocal up there to much pressure) stags had hinds and they would come in to check ya out if you roared but not reply.pissed down the whole time except when it snowed.

    Odds are only paying 0.5:1 on that though...... will have to cover less of the field to actually get paid!

    Had a roaring match with a farm Stag about 6 days ago near Dunedin so I'd say its already started.

    This prediction was made on the basis that the season in Hawkes Bay appears to be about 12 days behind last year.

    i.e. spring was late this year especially in the areas of the Ruahine and Kaweka where I have been hunting.

    We have had late snows, frosts and cold weather into December and the costal limestone country is still looking flush with green grass, usually this is drying off and turning brown by now.

    A mate who runs large kiwifruit orchards was 12days behind last last season putting out his bee hives. Apples and Grapes also appear to be behind as a result.

    But only time will tell aye.
