    Question Whirinaki Plateau rd hunting

    Hi, After a hip op I now hunt from my small camper van , no more backpacking in. Have been in the Clements rd end and Piripiro camp in the Pureorus. So has anybody been into the Whirinaki via Waipunga, circut rd, pine milling rd, plateau rd area. Just looking to see if it is o k to drive in, or if you can drive in and have a hunt with my new Hawkins Plains Rifle for a red. Camper is not 4x4 but can handle some rough gravel stuff and is a good base camp, Thanks for any info ,Homebrew.357.

    I believe the way through from the Waipunga is closed at the moment. something to do with the bridge the south end being dangerous.

    You will have to come in from the Minganui access, won't be any trouble with the state of the road just take your time and it will be fine

    Hi fellow Wester, thanks for your reply, Doc say`s you can go in via Minganui as well. Is the bridge through Waipunga end or on Plateau rd. A
    nyway may go back to the Piropiro area, diden`t see much last time, but deer do walk around, Thanks Barefoot, Homebrew.357.

    And thanks Bone crusher, just saw your reply.

    Hi and thanks guys, Just looking at Google maps at the Minganui end coming in from Main rd then on to South rd, which runs along the back of the pines and on the edge of the forest park. Looks like some good spots along there, so the best way is to have a look with the old mark one eye ball, Cheers, Homebrew.357.
