    Hunts course

    Has any one done a NZDSA Hunts course ? What do you think of them ?
    Are they worth while ?
    I was looking at doing the course ,the info they sent it looked to have a whole lot of
    stuff that I'd never even thought of. Mostly interested in the navigation ,bush craft &
    orientation but appears to be a lot more than that in it .

    Yup, did one with kiwi39 and his son.

    Taught me a lot about specifics re hunting NZ bush and animals (had hunted in Africa before)

    Make it clear to the instructors what you want to get out of it, one of them is likely to be a specialist and can help you heaps.

    We had an awesome session on butchery which for me was worth the whole course just on its own. Also good to see what everyone else uses and how different people do things.

    I have always wanted to do a hunts course but sadly the branch i was once a member of were more interested in target shooting and never offered to run a hunts course in the 2 years I was a member with them.
