    the last roar my Dad hunted in there. Dad ,Phil,Ivan and Ron I think were in there all experienced hunters and with all the chopper activity they never saw a deer let alone shot one....that wouldve been late 70s....
    its had a few green rains over the years which keeps numbers low.

    Have never gone in from the Plateau, used to climb over from below the old South Waipunga hut. Area a bit like Te Hoe, a good climb out.
