ISSUE 53 - On Sale Monday 6th June

It’s the peak of the tahr rut as I write this, and the boys in the ballot blocks have had it pretty rough over May and there’s only been one fine stretch in June so far.

The weather has been atrocious on the coast, with heavy rain and gale force winds meaning most blocks have been empty more often than not. Hopefully the weather will settle down soon and at least some of the ballot holders will be able to “Get amongst them”. We’re heading in mid-June so hopefully the weather has settled somewhat by then. 

This issue we have...

  • Jono and Jacque’s massive Westcoast bulls!
  • Mike’s Sika trophies of two kinds
  • A 14 pointer for Dad
  • Shoot up, shoot down
  • Ben Ohau tahr and Ahuriri Reds
  • So you want to be a pig hunter Part 2
  • Little Jen gets a big bull!
  • Helicopter 101 – why there are weight limits and why they change
  • Hunter becomes the hunted
  • Greig “Pays it forward”
