Wednesday in Kaimanawas a man shot & critically wounded!
Im not wanting to start another "blame game" but it may well be safer to adopt an American - "bow season" for the roar!!
  

sometimes i sits & thinks, & sometimes i just sits. never miss a good chance to shut-up
when your dead you don't know your dead. All the pain is felt by others. Same thing happens when your stupid!

Sad to say, I don't think it will ever end, but here's hoping. When culling for the N.Z. Forest Service, some of our field officer's use to pull us out of area's where they thought it would be too dangerous during the roar, and that was going back in the early 70's. Shocked

Been a spooky year for me, was guiding a young fella on his first real bush mission and he blew a hole in the bank half a meter away from me.....then I was snuck upon a couple of days ago by a guy thinking I was a stag, I sucked up a bit of dust or something then coughed and he called out just behind me.
  

Every hunt is successful, pulling the trigger is a bonus;)

They did the same during the 80's--since 1979 there has been one fatality every 9 months-but sadly over the last 5 years that figure has increased.

Gotta be a big increase of hunters since them days Baz.
I know a few of us  would vacate when the landies rolled in during certain times of year.
It's not good.

Your right EC-many more hunters these days. But in saying that there were a few venison foot hunters making the most of the meat prices back in the day.
There was a Bergs chiller in most towns during the high prices.

Remember that Muz, got pulled out of the Poh.  Being an aussie with no place to go the FO dropped me off at the Oroua for a couple of weeks.  The Deerstalker boys at Triangle were real happy (not) to see me.  Funny thing is I never saw a private hunter in the Poh in 74/75.  Closest I ever come to being shot was when another NZFS bloke accidently? discharged his rifle when following me into the block.  Was not happy  Angry

Some times you wonder if the roar is not a cover for the full moon. Identify your target at all times. Seems increasingly like many offenders have not shot any animals for a while so the natural instinct is to ramp up the tally and shoot what might be a deer to avoid frustration of seeing one bound or crash away. There are more deer around now than ever in the last 30 years.

Heard recently, Monday, that it is a miracle he is still alive due to the damage done due to the downward angle of the entry and exit wounds. Masterful work done by medical staff from chopper pick up to present.

was in the area when this happened, heard the shot and the 2 lots of 3 help shots just after the first shot. in the mist of making our way over there when we heard the Taupo rescue chopper coming down the valley. watched first hand the pilot and medical stuff do there job in windy conditions, was an amazing effort on there behalf.
lucky enough that someone had a PLB on them. they save lives.

He was shot with a 7-08 so is very lucky to be alive.

If some one has a update on how the guy is doing then let me know. .   

Stay Safe out there
