Hey team,

After any info on this block as have drawn it for winter next year. A google search only seems to reveal an old post from here which is, well, somewhat uninspiring.

We are pretty committed to going and making the most of the oppurtunity but any info to give us a heads up would be greatly appreciated.

Happy to help with info about the Lambert.

Cheers, Steve

Hi Steve I was in that block about 5 years ago Tahr numbers were not high an choppers were hunting the area on a regular basis.
The camp site was near the head of the valley in a small clearing. It would pay to mark the track out to the river with ribbon as it can be difficult to find in the dark. It is a typical glacier valley. Hope this helps.

Hey mate,

Thanks for that, appreciate the info.

As it turns out it is looking like we will skip this year, having been in touch with DOC it looks like we can expect AATH flights through the block during our period. Unfortunately this was in the fine print of the application. The one guy to hunt the block during this years ballot received 9 flights throughout his period.

We were keen to go for the experience even given the low numbers but if we are going to be have choppers shooting the animals out from under us I think we will spend our $$ elsewhere.

Appreciate the reply though mate.

Steve
