    If the bush is very thick then find a spot with good visibility and sign and then sit on yah butt and wait. Can skmetines be quite successful

Getting a bit old to lug a big pack full of meat out of there now but we shot a lot of deer in there over the years.
    Yea the track is non existent aye like there are some parts see it might have been but really only like 20 meters of track then it would disappear

    Nice read mate, I was in there on Sunday also, the Te Tehi, Plateau, Waipunga and Pukeroa are favourites of mine.
    Keep up the work just please take care, those areas have taken some tough guys over the years.

    Good stuff Anthony.
    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

    @anthony you might want to consider carrying a bit more food a puffer jacket matches and a light fly tarp.
    Just in case ya never know.....you could have shot one right on dark and had to spend another night out.
    You might need to get a new survival blanket. If there anything like the old ones you can forget about repacking it unless your good at origami.

    Quick overnight hunt into the Matakuhia Valley I had intentions of hunting in via the Opureke Track but after a reece decided too much windfall to attempt with it with a pack on, so bail out option 2 was the Upper Matakukia Hut,
    Very little sign to be sign, be it pig or deer.
    I put in a good evening hunt threw the day pack on and hunted at least 1 1/2 hours past the hut hoping to bump something at last light no cigar. In the morning I left at first light and hunted out in the rain all for no reward. So it ended up being a good leg stretcher climbing back out up the saddle which is always a bonus on the fitness front.
    Track in good condition with an abundance of sting nettle hence I took no dog on with me this trip

    By law, you are required to turn on your headlights if it's raining in Sweden.

    How the hell am I supposed to know if it's raining in Sweden?

    about 2and 1/2 km up from the capark on the left of the track theres a good north facing campsite to flycamp away from the crowds and good hunting once your up there . last time i was up there the track was so washed out you would struggle to get a quad up there.....which is a good thing means less people going up there
