ISSUE 40 - On Sale Mon 7th April

It’s here! The roar! We got a cancellation 2nd period Wapiti block to make up for the computer error in the ballot, and had a great trip to the Upper Glaisnock.

Then a week on the Canterbury Reds and now we’re be back to the North Island chasing Sika. This is our favourite way to spend April leading up to another date that’s looked forward to with high anticipation – the opening of the duck season! It’s pretty hard to feel bad about this time of year, there’s so much to look forward to!

We kick off this issue with Mike’s awesome story of the trail cam Sika stag

  • Johnny’s big Red part 2
  • Richie’s 14 inch bull tahr
  • Twenty roars anniversary
  • The 284 Super Pig
  • Kaimanawa Cruisin’
  • Chamois from the Coast
  • Tyron’s “From tahr to tur”
  • What bow for you?
  • Strength for hunting
  • Greig’s “This land we hunt”
