    Ruahine Mid Weeker

    We’d planned to disappear into the Ruahines earlier this week before Christmas and as the week approached I hoped the weather would hold out. We’d had some very hot days and despite some drizzle and some low clag the three days we spent ‘up a creek’ were great. We saw 11 deer and shot a couple.
    On the second day the two boys went out glassing by themselves and contacted us after spotting five deer, suggesting we bring over a couple of rifles ASAP as a stag was sleeping 370 yards from them. Once they had shot that another fed out and @popshot and I double teamed that.
    A great trip, with a great bunch of lads.

    I unashamedly burgled a stash somewhere around where you camped there The lid had been left off the bucket and it was full of water, so I "recycled" a couple of gas canisters that were going rusty.
    Hope it wasn't yours ..... cheers though

    The blue drum? Not ours. Im never impressed with stashes of shit in the bush, most of them are left unused like that one. We just carry in and out what we need. :-)
