Kia ora all,
My name's Paora. I'm fairly new to this game, only been hunting ducks and game birds the last two seasons. Looking to get a rifle fairly shortly and get into a bit of goat and deer hunting also. I grew up in Whanganui and have been living in Auckland for the last 10 odd years.
I'm an avid fisherman also who's still trying to land the big kingi off the rocks.
Mauri Ora!

I live in Arrowtown on a 10 acre block with some fallow deer, married with wife and 2 children. I own a geophysical survey company. Till 2 years ago I was a Commercial diver working in South East Asia and the Middle East. I still do the odd job in the oilfield.



I have hunted since I could walk I shot my first deer when I was 10 years old.

Now I hunt tahr, I have been known to throw rocks at deer when they get in the way of my tahr hunts.

Chose Weathered because Im always in it one way or another

Regards Weathered

Hi there, my name is Chris. Lived in CHCH almost my whole life and have recently graduated from blasting bunnies, possums and wallabies (hey all Australian...no coincidence I'm sure Wink) to some deer and 1 Tahr. I'm still working on a chamois but I have plenty of time.
Drive a desk Mon-Fri so hunt mainly in the weekends...when I'm not chored to domestic duties. Hard_Hunter: Well I just made this up but if you slip 'Trying' inbetween the two then you get me.
Nice to see some new faces, look forward to your contributions and hunting stories.
Cheers

Live in Taupo, enjoy gamebird hunting, deerstalking, a spot of pighunting and saltwater fishing and diving.  Phys. Ed teacher/HOD outdoor education which I really enjoy.  Live on 10 acres which I am trying to develop inbetween hunting and fishing trips!  Have a black lab as my main hunting companion and enjoy working with dogs/training them.  Hunt mainly Ureweras, Ahimanawas, Kiamanawas in that order.  Lucky to live in Taupo with hunting at the back door which helps.

Was antsinlondon on the old forum, but been back in NZ for 2 years and 2 days (not that I'm counting!), so just plain Antsnow.

Living in St Heliers in Dorkland now, but still support the Crusaders, after spending 8 years in Chch. Currently working for local government, but looking at moving back into IT training starting up in visual comms.

Still learning new stuff all the time, after doing a fair bit of shooting .22s and airguns when a youngster. Involved with the NZDA at local committee level, done a few hunts with some of the boys from the old forum, all good sorts!

Always up for hunts with new faces.

Just a nickname that stuck, usually Michael and derivatives taken on forums.

Came across the forum two days ago. Posted once before this site was set up.

Grew up on a sheep and cropping farm from the SE of SA. Hunting mostly foxes with drives, and spotlighting. Had a few semi professional fox shooters tuck me under their wings. Caught the deer bug of them. Hunt fallow and red in SA. Shot a sambar spikey in the vic alps.  I hunt for the enjoyment of hunting and the meat rewards. Although I have been told you grow out of that Undecided

Have a PhD in seafood. Chasing up a few leads for jobs on the Sth Island. Reckon my 280 and pump shotty would love a change of scenery.

Look forward to meeting you, and possibly sharing a hunt sometime.

Blackeyed1,very new name for myself,something to do with talking when I should have been listening last weekend.
Cut my teeth pig hunting in the Nelson area before I grew out of that and begain real hunting(ouch,feel another blackeye coming up) chasing Reds,Whitetail deer,chamios and my favorite Tahr after moving further south to Wanaka.
My Leicas and my A-bolt 7mm08 are my most treasured possessions
When Im not hunting Im downhill mountainbiking or getting over the coast for a fish,groper/hapuka or a snapper back in Nelson being my favs
Also so a member of our local NZDA

Gidday lads, just popped in, one of your blokes gave me the addy from a UK forum, which is a bit odd as I am in South Australia.

Looks to be a great site. Hope to learn and contribute where I can.

Names William, live in Wellington, do a little bowhunting, taken bunnies and goats, but hoping for a deer or pig sometime soon.
Dont get out much but hoping to change that soon and put some effort into getting some bigger game.
Chose Dogboy because of my furry little children an english bulldog, and an american bulldog.
