The first ray of light after a cold spell, they will be sunning themselves and warming up on the sunny faces

I am really keen to try for a wallaby or two whilst living over here, any advice for someone who hasn't hunted them before?

get out into a area where they are living and look for grey color in shape of a road cone (wallaby upright looking at you) and also for set of mickey mouse ears in tussock....once your eyes get tuned in to them they not hard to spot,a good set of binos help no end
failing that do some "landscaping" roll rocks down into scrubby gullies and watch to see what hops out.

most places closed up now for lambing. some public land is available, but still pretty cold. Look on to sunny faces in the mornings or afternoons for them.

Went out for wallabies last week. Ended up with a fallow yearling and a red stag. Got a couple of hoppers as well. Always seems to be the odd fallow deer where ever there are wallabies.

Mostly around the hunter hills or hakataramea valley. I only know of the DOC blocks which seem to be a bit hilly. Have a look here
