    My wife and I went to New Zealand in May. Fantastic time. Friendly people and scenery that can't be beat. Took a very good bull tahr with Southern Mountain Adventures. We will be back!

    Thanks Randy. New Zealand is an awesome place. The folks who live there, called Kiwis, are some of the friendliest I've ever met

    Nope didn't measure him, he was a bit smaller than the big bruiser that busted us earlier that day. He is currently at the taxidermist getting a make over. Next on our list is Africa !

    We had a Kiwi in our Fraternity when I was in school. He had several Kiwi buddies also on campus and they pooled their money and bought this awful old green car. They then painted the New Zealand flag on each side and called it the Kiwi Crooza (cruiser). Every time I saw those guys, they were having a ball!

    Hamish was the first to tell me about the stags roaring in New Zealand. Told me they were pests. I thought he was a fool. I look back at it now and realize I was the ignorant fool!
