    To me this Thread take the #1 seat
    That last PDF is a collection
    Good on all that took part - would have been a lot of work but the rewards would have been even greater !!

    Never got to the Golden Hills - entended to - but never did

    Again @time out
    Great Post - in my opinion best this year thus far

    Stayed in the old hut over thirty years ago and hadn't been back until last November when hunting from the new hut. Went and checked out the restoration. Awesome job, really well done although could only see from the outside.

    Visited the hut about three weeks back when hunting and it looked incredible.

    Noticed that the monowai and manuka have taken over quite a lot of the tussock compared to when I first hunted the area in 1989. More cover for the sika. Took a couple of deer less than 100m from the hut right on dark; could just make them out after cranking the scope power back to about 5x.

    It's a beautiful area and the hills are gentle.

    @Murray N
    I have an original old swanni here about 50+ age and an original NZFS map of the area showing pack tracks to the hut as they were then. PM me if interested.
