Re: Coming down for a hunt

Striker, I watched the videos of helihunting, APPALLING! I would never hunt in that manner, it is not even hunting it is culling.

I found my guides website, CSI Hunting - New Zealand Hunting Guides

it appears that a family member runs the helicopter service he uses. They do mostly ag and S&R operations.

If there is any more info you can share I would appreciate it.

What is the deal with Wallaby hunting, are they like hunting praire dogs here? Just go out and blast as many as can in a day? How would they hold up to a 338LM?

I would like buy some of you gents a pint if you are in the Dunedin or Christchurch areas. Maybe even go out and do a little hunt or shoot a bit.

Ray

Unfortunately the chopper company has temporay Helli hunting concession permits and a large amount of public land that they can access. for them to have PERMITS theN means they will be very active in the trophy shooting season

Re: Coming down for a hunt

I emailed and asked how he utilized the helicopter. I will let you know how he replies.
I am hoping that he uses them to put down in an area that we will camp and hunt out of.

Is there any way to find out if he is involved that type "hunting"?

If I find out that he is, I will certainly put the word out here and hopefully the NRA will not utilize his services!

I was the high bidder for this hunt at the fundraiser, I sure would hate to lose out on a one in a lifetime trip for me, but I'll be damned if I will hunt with him if the worst is true.

Please do all you can from your end to find out more info and if you can furnish proof I am sure that I can get it shut down from this end.

Perhaps one of you guys would put me up for awhile so that I can wander the hills on my own.

Awesome Fishing And Hunting New Zealand. Fishing And Hunting Forum. Where New Zealand and Australian Fisherman & Hunters Have Hung Out Since 1995


I have no proof of the Guide being part of that type of that activitiy but I will ask around if anyone else knows.I would say that he is considering the heli operator he is utilizing.

Id try too put you up(depends on work) but Im way too north for the better hunting in this country.
Join the forum above if you like and ask any questions you like regarding NZ hunting.

Hunting tahr and chamois would be worth the extra fee, especially if you get right up into the mountains. Check out my thread Bull Tahr at 630 yards (pics and video)

I'm really keen to hunt NZ too one of these days !!!!! Its not too far for me living in Sydney..
