Anyone been into the Tutaekuri hut recently or planning to go? I have a contact to access from the Ahaura side and was planning a trip with some NI mates but will do a recce myself before they pitch up.

It's a good spot. The hut is only a few years old and is about as good as you'll get with tank water, meat safe and long drop. Stacks of room and a fire that will bloody near blow the roof off.

Nice river flats up that way and sees a bit of pressure because of it.

The tute has more in the way of river flat hunting than the Waiheke (Slatey) because you can wrap around and hunt the Trent with ease, boost up to the mid Trent and stay the night there... but that's not to say you won't see deer down stream of the Slatey.

If you were wanting to hunt from west to east through one of the passes I would go with the Tute/Hope option as opposed to Waiheke/Amuri.

It'd really depend on how much time you have.

River flats have all gone...huge flood wiped these out which is a real shame, they will bounce back in a few years. Access is now a issue as Andy has now left the station.

Have they finally sold the place or has Andy just moved on?

Is the new manager less inclined to provide access 7mm?

Hey mate, the owners are still the same - Andy has got a new job elsewhere. One of the owners now spends a lot of his time there & they have a new manager overseeing the place.

Haven't been on here for ages! Then again haven't been out much in a couple of years....blame being "Self Employed" (Thanks Solid Energy) with a mortgage and family to keep going....

Went in here finally almost exactly a year ago, nice wee trip for 2 nights. No issues with access now, just annoying that there's 2.5km walk along a pretty decent track from the locked gate, I'd even take the missus' little Peugeot along most of it it's that good!

Anyway came on to see if anyone had been in recently, planning to take my 9yo on her first back-country expedition this weekend.

There's quite a lot of folk go in by the looks of the book and I met a couple of keen lads on my way out who were yomping in to the Mid-Trent. Some pretty decent looking pools for fish upstream towards the Trent confluence. Last year I didn't go into the Trent upstream of the confluence, I was primarily hunting and the wind was swirly but generally downstream on the Tutaekuri so I concentrated on looking at the few remaining grassy flats up there. Saw nothing but plenty of activity so worth a dawn/dusk stake-out.

Hut is in excellent nick, quite a bit of useful utensils etc so no need of pots/pans being hauled in.

Deer sign all the way from the car park but gets a lot of pressure and they're pretty nervous.

Some photos:

Decent looking hut:

Some great photos there 12pointer. The old hut & new hut are like 'chalk & cheese'.
