    Welcome, Northland has a place called "NIWA" lots of fishy research going on there, and a high population of beer connesurs, most highly rated beer is lion red.

    There are good buggers everywhere in NZ, you can't miss

I think a well placed bullet on a animal from a .223-.375 will kill the crap out of it. Granted for your wapiti might want a .270 and up
    We are SUPER stoked to check out the South Island...hopefully 2 weeks next December.
    Welcome mate, but be warned you appear to be making sense which is not always permissable in our culture!

    Welcome to the forum, agree with the post re NZ going to the dogs, but there is another place just across the other side of the Tasman sea called Australia, victoria has the most opportunities on public land hunting and wages are far better

    Welcome Joe,we helped 2 families from South Africa we worked with shift out ,IMO you need to be contacting prospective employers & sussing out what additional training you can both take on to make your applications/enquiries for employment from ho hum, to how soon can you get here. Good Luck & good on you for having a crack
