    You had pretty much a 1 in 3 chance this year based on the number of entries and the number of blocks/days available. It's a well managed ballot run by a small and dedicated team of volunteers. They do a shite load of work up there setting up the blocks, patrolling and trying to keep things fair for all. I'm not involved but I know a couple of the guys. I've never had a bad days hunt up there, even in pissing rain or without firing a shot. Almost always animals seen and some real close.

    If you got a ballot, have a good hunt!

    There is only supposed to be hunting in there by ballot Munsey but the Helensville Police frequently catch poachers in there that are after Fallow. With regard to the murder capital of forests, I back onto it and for years used to hoon a horse through the tracks down to Muriwai beach. Was always looking out for a crime scene discovery but I never found one.

    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

    Eight of them up the back last night Phillip, including a nice looking spiker and buck chasing a doe in heat. I was taking the wife out to dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary but I have to tell you it crossed my mind to let her go by herself.

    You could have been forgiven for considering it! (who am I kidding?!)
    They were they roaring or just chasing the doe around?

    I have never seen any Munsey but perhaps I should get an AR15 just in case.
