ISSUE 72 - On Sale Monday 5th August

I hope the tahr ballot block weather worked more in your favour than it did in ours.

We had Speculation Creek the 3rd week in May and it was a complete washout, no-one was able to get in. Oh well, back to walking in when the weather is more suitable, which is more our style anyway. We’ve had some great success off camera since then, doing shorter trips driving in up the East Coast rivers, thinking we won’t film this as we probably won’t find anything very mature. Murphy’s law of course and we managed to find the Garmin guys (one of one of our sponsors and true good barstards in the NZ outdoor industry) a cracker bull up an often forgotten headwater. Look out for that story in a future issue.

There’s much to be done politically in the next little while, with the second tranche of firearms legislation not far off being released, and the tahr management plan for next year about to be formulated. While the initial changes to the firearms legislation (being pragmatic) have been probably as good as we could have expected in the circumstances. No, none of us are happy about having legitimate firearms confiscated and being made by some in the media to look like villains by association with some nutcase from Australia - who never should have got a firearms licence in the first place. This next set of proposed changes could be quite different. We will have to be very vigilant we don’t get dealt an unwieldy, very expensive and impossible-to-be-done-properly firearms registration system. Judging by overseas experience that will be an even further case of pointless laws for the lawful. 

This issue we have... 

  • An alpine double, double – Red stag and bull tahr for Emil Hansen and Luke Care
  • Ryan Hart’s 10” chamois buck
  • A brute of a highcountry stag by Toby Walker
  • Brent Glentworth in South Africas Eastern cape – Part I
  • Tom Cliffe’s first roar hunt – a 17 point stag!
  • Hunting with a lens – chasing Sambar with Pete Harding
