You could come down to the Waikato and try Bridal Veil Falls. I went there for lunch the other day between jobs and could see goats on the surrounding farmland and from the top of the falls. Itís a bow hunting only block, no firearms.

ive spent my last 3 months hunting Bridal Veil.. its closer for me to hunt as im in Papakura but it seems very very few can be located in the bush... im pretty happy hunting there but with no success yet the wife is getting annoyed and has told me to get results or give it up... so just looking for places that holds more goat numbers... when i was hunting with a rifle years ago i would get goats pretty easily, mostly cos i had access to a private block but dont have that anymore... seems all the door knocking ive done in Waikaretu and Port Waikato has resulted in a no or whoever answers the door doesnt have authority to say yes... i guess ill just keep going with Bridal until the wife ends the enjoyment  Sad Sad
cheers tho

My missus commented on whether I was actually going hunting as I never brought any venison home - nek minnit (next trip) two fallow on the deck.
Your wife may have just blessed you with good luck!
I don't go hunting to collect meat, I go because I enjoy being out there and the hunting gives it a purpose and adds to the enjoyment, and takes you places you wouldn't go as a tramper. Probably the same for a lot of people.

Goats in the Te Kauri Lodge DOC Reserve on the way out to Kawhia. They all ended up in there and the neighboring farm land when the goat cullers went through Pirongia Mountain last time.
