Thread: A few photos of my recent trip to NZ

  1. #1

    A few photos of my recent trip to NZ

    I just thought I'd add some photos of New Zealand. I spent three and a half months there, mostly farming and fencing around the whole country. I managed to fit in some fun stuff too. There's some photos of shooting goats, possums, darting thar from a helicopter, hunting thar over the alps, diving for paua and kinner, fishing for trout and snapper.
    Hope you enjoy, I did!

    What were the Tahr being darted for?

    The sheep/deer farm I stayed at had a hunting block (with chamois, thar, fallow & reds) and he had promised an american hunter a certain sized tahr head (dont agree with all of this, but he was a business man! hope he doesnt read this!) So he also had a large area tahr in, we darted these, measured them up, then released the big boy in the right place at the right time. Is that hunting? not really... However to honestly shoot a tahr requires hiking up mountains, and weeks to burn. An elderly american with time constraints just cant do it! awesome experience in and under helicopters though!
