    in feburary this year exactly 5 dayys after my wife joy ellen shot her first deer a 13 piont red deer just out of velvet , we went away for a weekend to catch up with my dad and little bro and sis .
    an d to spend the sunday after noon at the wild deer and hunting adventures magazines hunting expo in bendigo in western victoria a six hour drive from uor home.
    as we entered the exibition centre there we noticed the wilderness quest new zealand s boothand they were hosting a compition to win a free hunt with them at the end of august to hunt a red deer and arapawa ram and goats and pigs .so josie filled in an entry form and a long stry short as we were looking around the expo an anouncment come over for her to go to the stewards station and bugger me dead she has won this free hunt .
    so she and our daughter jorja aregoing to nz i couldnt go because i have my own hunting trip ncomming soon after they're return
    on august 19 they fly out of melbourne for a five day hunt and 4 days girl time after wards
    im not real sure in what order the shot everything but one thing for absolute certian is that theyre guide would have been entertained by these pair as they are pretty new to hunting .
    jorja girl used to love comming up the bush with us boys right up until she started high school and discovered mobile phones ,make up and the dreaded boys,
    anyways these two are over new zealand and they re gunna make it a trip to remember .
    first up on day 2 i think joysie shot an arapawa ram which she thought was out standing
    they're guides name is jessiah i beleave he was very patient with the girls and they both tell me he waS THE BEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD the poor bloke is proberly in therapy by now .
    both of them can shoot well but my wife has only ever shot rabbits and a couple of foxws and 1 deer up until now
    but the girl she has shot plenty of rabbits and foxes and even used to skin and gut them and used to love stalking deer in the high country and has a nice 25 inch samba stag on the wall which we got together when she was 12 with a neck shot from 200 metres shes always been a handy shot
    she has also shot several fallow deer
    but to go over to nz to hunt with wilderness quest was very exciting for both of my ladies and they were like a couple of kids
    on day 3 it sound like they got a bit more seriuos and took a trophy goat each and 3 cull pigs
    followed up on the fouth day with joysie taking a 22 point red deer which she atalked for over 5 hours and sounds like an awesome hunt with her exhausted in the end and on the 5th day she sat in duck hide waiting to take down a pair of paradise ducks .
    the both of them cant stop teeling me how much fun they had with wilderness quest and how they would reccomend evryone that goes to hunt in nz to look these guys up ,
    after they're hunt the did acouple of days sight seeing and i still cant believe my wife went bungee jumping P1000324.jpg P1000371 (2).jpg P1000460.jpg P1000471.jpg
    my wife would love to thank wildernes quest for giving her the noppotunity to hunt with them and cant speak highly enuogh the whole out fit and says she and our daughter cant wait to go back there in 2014 to hunt a himmalayan thar each .and i would like to thank them for being all booked out next year so i can hunt more animals on our african trip !!!!

    I'm glad they had a great time.

    Wilderness Quest is pretty well run operation, well know to USA hunters, they do a lot of marketing.
