    A few photos and words from 2013 so far...

    This year has been quite busy for me, more on the hunting side of things rather than work which is always nice.

    First up was a work trip to the Nelson Lakes. My second ever Chamois, a nice young buck with nice hooks and good potential I’m told.




    My first decent hunt of the year in early March was my second ever trip chasing Sika in the Central North Island. A week camping on the tops. It is amazing how far you can go once you get up there. Managed to secure my third ever Sika, a wee 6 point stag. The number of flies in that warm NI country still amazes me.


    hillclima’s neat dogs helped carry all our gear...









    Another work trip to the Nelson Lakes with enough spare time after work to get a few sausages:




    The red roar rolled round which I spent in Otago with TripleT. A few younger animals taken unfortunately but all meat was put to good use. 26kg of sausages from one animal! Although we did well in animal numbers, the roaring was a bit half hearted.







    The Blue Mountains this year were a bit lacklustre with not much croaking going on. Did manage a poor looking buck though...


    I managed another buck in the Greenstone, but not of the same species...






    And just this last week we had a bit of a washed out trip into the Edison River. No animals were shot unfortunately

    Awesome mate. Thanks for sharing!
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    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

    Thanks guys. If anyone wants some venison just get in touch...

    Savage, didn't see many in the Edison but it wasn't helped by the fact we couldn't get far from camp most of the time due to the large amount of soft powdery snow.... We came out early due to that.
