Any time spent in the N.Z bush free of sandflies is Golden.
Again, great video.
My only experience of Arthurs is having crossed it in the train from Greymouth (I think) to Ch'church in the middle of Winter.
Train was delayed for four hours when we had to stop and build a fire on the tracks as they had frozen.
Gorgeous scenery. Beautiful country.
Out of Wanaka , Glen Lyon station , close to Mt Cook.
I’m taking my 280 Remington with 160 grain trophy bonded bullet.
Hunting for another Tahr and most likely a red stag.
And of course some awesome fly fishing for those amazing trout.
Maybe a black swan will have to see.
Adding a week on the end just to tour the South Island.
How do you find your K95? I’m seriously thinking about getting a single shot rifle and K95 is at the top of the list right now. I’ve got another Blaser - R8 and am quite happy with it though I prefer the cocking device of my Krieghoff and so their Hubertus is second on my list.
Lovely country you hunt in, it would definitely keep you fit!
I've only had it a few months, but I love it. The ability to take it to pieces and put it back together and retain zero is amazing. They are a very accurate rifle too, easily sub MOA and often 0.5 MOA with not too much load development. I'm impressed with the 7x65R as well. I've had 7mm mag, 7 SAUM and 7 RUM so am a 7mm man. I had considered a 7x57R but felt the 7x65R gave me a bit more for the alpine country I hunt.
Hi the dude in the picture. It would be cool to know the area (genetics) of the stag you have in your profile picture. I am from New Zealand and shot a stag here that is almost identical, especially the throw backs. I can send you a photo to prove I'm genuine with my enquiry.
