Don't you worry about me and the Edge ;) we will move along just dandy:0

Plenty of land down that way, you got a private block there to get onto or just DOC?

Steve,
Doc land, George and McLean Stream off the Clarence. George is better for Chamois and Mclean better for goats.

Leatham Valley up the Wairau in Marlborough might be alright. I haven't been up there for a few years but it is open scrubby country and you can 4wd to some huts though.

I don't have any private blocks to go into.

One of the big stations up the Awatere would be awesome, but I don't have any contacts up there any more.

You know of any places?

Stu.

Re: Organised hunt of NZ chapter of LRH

well i still havent got a load sorted that id me happy to put past 300m. but id be super keen to meet everyone and hang out for a day or more. i can get onto glentanner station down by mt cook. we could go clean up some nannie tahr. maybe the odd 11inch bull. though id rather not clean up too many of them. but would love a go with that edge if steve would accommodate that.
about to build a .223 well really taking a stevens and putting it in a choate tactical stock. if i have a scope by then and a load ill take it for a goat bomb up.( ill just take the close shots)

Re: Organised hunt of NZ chapter of LRH

I had some practice sunday morning after a failed deer hunt however i did see 4 young stags.

I had 2 options, i could stay up there in the beautiful sun. or drop down into the gully and head for home in the fog. i decided to stay up in the sun and i was rewarded by seeing 4 goats sunning themselves in small clearings.

I managed to get 4 goats with 4 shots. 2 at 550yards and 2 at 640yards. after the first shot i thought hmmm did i miss that one? i was getting worried because it was just standing still then she fell over. next shot on the one beside it dropped it straight on the spot, ahh i love my A-maxs!
