Shame those books weren't written about the guys who did thousands of hours...had no accidents..didn't hurt or kill anyone...but I guess those legends don't make a good yarn.

Did the first pickup of a deer from the air that Joe did in the head of Waihaha in Mountain Helicopters Hillar. Joe hovered about 2 metres above the tree I had my deer hanging in then said to get out.
"Not bloody likely get this thing down a bit lower"
We used to hang deer by neck with a rope which we tied to the top of a tree then tied a white rag up the tree so you could spot it from a distance. Just had to fly into top of tree get out on skid and put the spliced  rope onto hook. The deer would be hung with baling twine and that would break as lifted the deer out.

Joe was a .223 man gave me shit about my .308. He was good to us ground shooters and did everything he could to pick up our deer as he knew how much trouble we went to to get our animals cos he'd spent an apprenticeship on the ground before he learnt to fly. All bush pilots should have to do that first to get a better perspective.
Ask any pilot how far it is to so and so and its always "not far" when it takes half a days walk or more. I always reckoned on flat going a minute in the air takes an hour on foot.
