Issue 40 - Apr / May 2014

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

Tahr Show is on again

You’ll see this year we have slightly earlier confirmation the Tahr Show is on again, so keep the weekend of the 2nd and 3rd of August free, and head for Christchurch. There are some exciting new competitions with some awesome prizes this year, one of which is a lucky draw for a rifle for every set of varmint ears you hand it – possum, stoat, ferret, weasel, rabbit etc - and we’ll keep you informed as more information comes to hand. We’ll be holding the NZ Hunter Live Duck and Goose calling champs there again, and there’ll be the trophy and photo competitions as usual.
