Another great course with another great group of people.
Often the unexpected experience is the most rewarding as I found out the summer that I moved to Hawkes Bay. After an exciting but stressful relocate, I quickly settled into a pattern of hunting at least five times per week. In just a few months I had seemed to have mastered sharpening my knife, packing the perfect contents of a hunting day pack, butchering goats and large hares.

Clifford attended last year and wrote up an article on it, the result being we were invited down again this year to attend, take photos and get some coverage.

I was excited about the prospects of getting the eldest girl (now just turned 2) out and walking and tramping with me. I started with heading out on day walks with her in the MacPac Vamoose, but was keen to get her down and walking at least some of the way as soon as she was…
