Issue 45 - Feb / Mar 2015

The temperature is well in the 30s as I write this and it’s hard to imagine the roar is just round the corner!

Anyone with a Wapiti ballot, especially first period, will be getting on with the planning of their expedition. Even Red and Sika roar plans will be will underway for some of you more organised hunters. We have got the Whitewater first period in the bugle this year, so will be taking our cameras on another Fiordland expedition. That leaves us plenty of time for the Red and Sika roars too. Hopefully we’ll get some more great footage to show you all in series two of NZ Hunter Adventures.

There’s still plenty of meat gathering yet to do this summer, with February being one of the best months to put fat venison in the freezer. We’ve just come back from an east to west while traversing south, crossing of the central Ruahines. We tend to forget what awesome country we have in the heart of some of our North Island ranges, and you don’t always have to go south to get into ‘Big Country’! We gathered some prime venison along the way, and filmed another great episode to boot.

This issue we have the first article from one of our country’s keenest waterfowlers – Hunter Morrow. And Paul Michel’s starts a mini-series on the ever popular topic - deer dogs.
