An unexpected night out for the Groom
Several days before the big wedding day (Sept 19th 2009) I caught up with Curley in Queenstown to roam one last time in those magic alps as a free spirit. The target species were fallow and the purpose of the trip was to bag a bit of meat for the up'n'coming stag do. After all, what better culinar... View full article

Hunting Red Stags in April

Hunting Red Stags in April

Monday 19th October 2009
HOW TO HUNT RED STAGS DURING MARCH/APRIL Put simply, timing of the roar revolves around when hinds are cycling (i.e. when they’re ovulating and ready to mate). At least that’s the gist of it anyway. Stags scent out cycling hinds and essentially spend their time marking out their territo... View full article

Bealey Buck

Summer holidays drew to a close and Curley and I packed up the little amount of gear we had after a larksome few months’ kiwi fruit contracting in and around Tauranga, and headed southbound. It was time to begin the journey to the mainland to commence our 2nd year at Lincoln Uni, Canterbury. O... View full article

Bruised, Battered, But not Broken - The Climb From Hell
This article continues from the previous Issue where I surmised our 14 day sojourn throughout various catchments in the Southern Alps.

Lemons in the Whitcombe - March 2008

Sunday 16th November 2008
The original of this article can be found in Issue 5 of the NZ HUNTER magazine This article is a little bit different from my previous writings. To make a long story short, our 2008 roar trip turned out to be fruitless despite the exhausted planning and preparation. Most people prefer to read succe... View full article

South Island Boar (Aug 2007) Canterbury
This story also dates back more than a year. I popped out with a mate named Andrew (after chamois initially) during a crisp August day and the weather was mint! Maybe a bit chilly to start with, but it warmed up by lunch time. We saw a cham in the morning, but it was miles away, and there was a bit... View full article

Winter Bull Tahr (June 2007) MacKenzie Country
Francy and I headed out on the last week of June in 2007 for an overnighter into some tahr country with no shortage of snow. Aside from that, we couldnt really complain about the weather because it was a pearla - Blue bird! And not a breath of wind. Once we got up to our campsite I spotted a bull o... View full article
