Issue 54 - Aug/Sep 2016

Winter is here with a vengeance it seems at last, and no doubt a few have been tempted to hand up their boots and rifles until spring.

There has been quite a bit of snow fall now, and avalanche risk is heightened so be very cautious on or below those leeward slopes between 25 and 55 degrees if tahr hunting above 1000 metres.

The Lower North Island Red Deer Foundation needs donations from all hunters to fund its court case  regarding the unnecessary openings of the Rimutaka and parts of the Tararua Forest Parks that have been closed for years to WARO. This is a precedent setting case, so please donate whatever funds you can to the cause:

  • Donations to the Lower North Island Red Deer Foundation Incorporated can go to Kiwi Bank acct # 38 9017 0707871 01
  • Check out their Facebook page (LNI Red Deer Foundation) for more info and a donation form if you want a receipt.
  • Please donate and spread the word, time to make a stand.


The Spot the Logo Winners for Issue 53 are  Ray Boone and Sam Gee. The logos were on the Tightlines- Ledlenser ad on page 33 and the DPT ad on page 88.

I love the different hunting opportunities the winter provides, so hopefully we’ll see you somewhere in the hills in the next couple of months!
