    Good photography spots?

    Hey guys
    Just wondering if anyone knows any good spots in matamata, morrinsville, Te Aroha area that holds decent numbers of deer, goats, or pigs. I dont mind public or private land and WILL NOT be taking a firearm or anything else but a camera. Not asking for your secret spots just a rough area to get started. Cheers

    I know of a spot in the Kaimais' that a friend managed to get 5 deer in one frame ( I think that is a 'decent' number)...he quite often takes a camera instead of his rifle, but then he is an older chap now and doesn't have the desire to kill every deer anymore...I could tell you where this spot is, but what assurances does one have that you and your mates wont come back and blitz it?
    Which is worse, ignorance or apathy...I don't know and don't care.

    Would be safe with telling me Spook. I don't have mates.
    ARdave and possummatti like this.
    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

    Sounds like your mates got it sorted. Im not like that, when people help me out im not a wanker and go behind there back and dis respect them. Im not asking for your secret spots mate and i understand why people dont give out tips left right and center as there a far to many pricks out there to know whose genuine and not. Cheers

    Bring a box of Bill Codys' and we will talk shit, after a couple of 5%er's my lips get loose and have been known to point people in what I think is the right direction...don't turn up with Waikato or the likes of @Rushy will be around like flies around a pile of turd.
