oh nice. Bloody big buggers those samber! I came across a bit of sign in the pines while fishing down there one weekend, havnt seen one in the flesh thu. I havnt spent much time outside the Kawekas, other then the tararuas on a few roar trips. I can imagine the hunting would be pretty shit hot up your way. yea there is a few coons kicking around, it was realy my first time giving it a decent go, so im still learning from a bit of trial and error! I did two months in the omar biv area in the kawekas over summer, didnt do very well on the possums, but that trip was more about being in the bush for two months.Yea the fur is slowly climbing back up, it did get up to $145 few months back.
