Issue 53 - Jun/Jul 2016

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”
  • The Tui
  • Wapiti - bring on the herd of special interest before it’s too late!
  • Age the bull
  • Bush ethics – shit and rubbish!
  • Southern Comfort – Hunter’s waterfowl trip to the deep south part 2
  • The real oil on 1080    

Test Fires: We Evaluate...

  • Bushnell Elite 1 Mile ConX and Kestrel Sportsman
  • MaxxDry boot dryerss 

The Spot the Logo Winners for Issue 52 are  Ian Hunter and Dave Woods. Logos were on the Gunworks advert on page 41 and the Leupold advert on page 68.

 

There’s plenty of hunting opportunities left before you have to batten down the hatches for the winter, so get out in the high country and make the most of it!
