    Acouple of days in Kaimanawa's

    Felt like I needed a break for a couple of days to recharge the batteries & just get in a some hunting.
    Checking some new country so headed for a popular spot in the Kaimanawa's armed with some new knowledge
    and a couple of pieces of gear I was itching to try out.Also getting a better understanding of this GPS . Seems
    to work a lot better with lithium batteries too as per manufacturers recommendations.
    Home for the weekend


    The battle truck

    Some nice open bush






    A lot of this ,it was just every where & I haven't seen sign like this for a long time





    Spring growth still appears a little way off but plan to be back in a few weeks.No meat to bring home
    this trip but meet some nice people & found myself a new spot-X which seem like a gem at the moment.
    Here's 1 for Rushy, some protein for dinner .Didn't taste too bad after a hard day on the hill.

    Dam it was a cold place to be ,but with better gear now was so glade I was there.The wind coming SE
    all weekend with Scotch miss showers threatening to turn to snow for 3 days was nice to be liberated at 8pm
    Sunday & head back north to some warmer weather.

    So that's what Sika poo looks like. I would have seen it and thought possum straight away.

    Lithium batterys are worth the extra $ as I've had some in my GPS, and worked out I've had it on for 5 full days hunting and still full battery.

    Bit small for possum & too much of it . Sure get more hours out of lithium the Magellan eats every thing else.2 or 3 days from a pair of batteries is actually more cost effective I think @ $4 per .

    Well done Chris and the family dish for dinner. Man after me own heart.
    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
