Do you eat the Pukekos or just cull them? Looks like you are using air rifles?
 
Good fishing trip nothing breaks, great trip catch fish.

the lady who owns the farm wants the feathers,you can get within 20m of them and shoot by the wing and they fall over dead, can get between the 3 of us 50/60 birds in 2 days.they are a absolute problem down there.aussie swamp hens,

normally give me a call labour weekend so she a bit late never mind,be cooler in the tentUnhappy

sad to say it gets wsted,normally bring a few home to pressure cook as cat food,I have no idea what they use feathers for as husband/wife are well what you may call eccentric,peace n love and all that follows,Ever seen the movie "Ned Devine"?well she reminds me of the old lady on the scooter.For some unknown reason you cannot shoot the rabbits there.

Home to dure to weather,hard to believe how hard its raing down there,went to paunui for a look and the bar looked dangerous to me! any,monday spent good part of the day helping ranger retrieve rubbish out of river,amazing how people thinks it a rubbish tip,bins provided oh thats right need to walk to them, Interesting other side of river a old mine has been reopened and pulling about $100k per month,some money goes back to DOC,they are working 700m in and if you strike it right owners will take you in for a look.
Tuesday went down to farm and got only 10 pukehoes and 6  rabbits,boys lost interst quickly and wanted to eeling.So a relaxing time caught up on much needed rest as haven't sat still since start of holidays.

1080 love it or hate,last time down there was 2.5 yrs ago with no bird life,they did a drop 6 months ago and surprised how quickly birds have returned,could see tuis and bellbirds,early morning awoken to chorus of the cuckoo birds and one thing we noticed last night in the wet was black bush rats.seem happy roaming trees and never ventured in to kitchen where all sorts of packets lying open untouched. Oh well now to get ready to go kawau / mahurangi on friday.
