That looks outstanding.

How many days did you hunt?

I was in country for around three weeks...that allowed me to travel around and see quite a bit and have quite a diversity of hunting experiences. By far the South Island had more opportunity and was less traveled.

pleased to see you had a good time "down under"
those wallabies sure are a hoot to hunt, not bad eating either ,most guys leave them where they fall.
some of those photos are in familiar looking country but that last picture sure looks a honey of a spot for ducks.

I am sure a lot of those places would look familiar...pretty small country actually. I was out at Molesworth when the guy fell off the cable. I am sure you heard about it, unbelievable!

The last picture is on the wet and wild west coast...had some particularly good luck with the weather while there. Only hunted the evening at that spot saw more birds than I shot flying around and scaring them up on the way in with the boat. I would have liked to have put in a morning there! Had a run in with some EELs Dang bloody BIG bastages stole one of my ducks before I could get my hands on it. Weird wild things down that way I say!

Got a few grays as well...perhaps when I retire I will make it back again?

Hope you didn't get shook up too bad by the latest shaker in Wellington?
