If I ever get out there, I'm definitely paying for the helicopter ride to the top.Getting a little old for those mountains from the looks of it.What month is the roar?Do they have separate rifle and archery seasons?
I got 4th period Upper Dingle block 30 in the Wanaka Ballot You have any luck in the Haast Wanaka or Wap ballots Kiwi? Mixedbag, some of the more popular spots are under a lottery during The Roar but there is still way more openly available public land than there are balloted blocks during during that period.
Oh yep I've seen you around! I'm Micko on fish'n'hunt, naturally. I like hunting the Ahuriri so I'm hoping Upper Dingle is similar. Mate and I had the Juno last year for the bugle but only saw young reds so we didn't bother shooting any. No luck this year but I wouldn't have been able to afford the heli anyways!
