    I did a last-of-the-summer-wine trip into Tepuke a couple of years ago, or I thought it was my last trip but have been offered a free heli trip into the Kaimanawa's...one young buck on the trip so hope to use him as a pack horse.

    Fuck the hunting, lets get on the piss...the old bus is not in use at the moment...bring a box and a gold card entry fee. Well you could go hunting up Thompson's if you really want to.

    I’d be interested, depending on dates as meant to be heading down south late March. I’m eligible in a months time.

    OK chaps. I took the bridle between my teeth this morning. I booked Tin Kettle block ; in 24th- out 28th March. Has big tussock valley bordered by bush. Fly in squirrel. Weight limit 145kg pp all up including yr toenails, tucker etc and cost all up $900pp. Room for three plus me. I've paid the booking deposit.
    Time to think seriously now!
    This block is closed and will reopen 1 March and the dates above are our only window.
    Please PM me those serious. (Golden hills blocks are fully booked unfortunately)

    Hey mate the max weight per person is 145 kg. Youd have to travel nude with your rifle and two rounds? Im a bit uncomfortable with that?

    These days I would have a forty kilo clothing and food allowance. I will look at the dates and let you know Woody.
    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

    So long as he remembers to put the belt back on around the correct heap.

    Just a bit of info about the block chaps. While the current name is Tin Kettle, the historical name of the hut location was Te Aputa hut and later commonly known as Kaimanawa hut. This hut became partly derelict and now serves as the firepkace and cooking area. A seperate 4 bunk module was built nearby more recently. The location is one valley west of the Gokden Hill block and is on the old bridle track between Boyd, Gold Creek, Gokden Hills old musterers hut ( now restored by a group coordinated by Murray N) then west to Te Aputa and SW thru Ngamatea and Ohinewairua to Gentle Annie Taihape. An interesting area.

    Note; when I referred to Ohinewairua alternatively read Owhaoko. Adjoins Ngamtea to the west.
