A bit wet and cold shot a spiked mid avo down main river. A good break and the bonus of some meat. Hut a lot warmer than polythene! Thanks Richard. Geoff & Steve from Tirau. 24th – 26th May, 2010.
Stags roaring all over. One good roarer pungas across from hut. He roared all night every day all day and night. Best consistent roarer I have heard in 58 years of deer stalking. Richard must have most of the stags in the Ruatahuna area on his property, many 6 & 8 pointers, looking good for future heads. Plenty of fresh pig sign in swampy creek west of the cabbage trees. Had an interesting talk to Tamahou (Roger) about the area & history & customs. Very enjoyable. Stay made great by the large numbers of roaring stags.

Spring break at the hut, cosy as always. Lucky with the weather. Phil, Mark, Geoff, Steve. 2 – 4, OCTOBER, 2009.
New experience in the bush in a house. Ka pai Ana. Thank you for the opportunity Richard & Meriann. From Guusj. Best sleeps. Kaleshu (say slowly) & Tashi Delek, greetings ( in Tibetan) to all. In deepest gratitude. Anzac Day 2008.
Morning of the 2nd stag on grassy hill 150m from hut. Roaring 2-3 stags from bush down left side of valley. Clear & crisp morning. Morning of the 4th cold clear & crisp. Boots frozen. Shot 8-point stag in Motuhouhi Stream. Great trip, great weather, great facilities. Many thanks to Richard & Ahurei Adventures. Simon, Robert & Glen of Auckland.
Deer everywhere, good weather. Shot weaned hind a spiked for sausages. Back soon. Phil & Shaun. 18 – 20 Jan, 2010.
A wonderful holiday for us all. We saw heaps of deer every day and some interesting bird life, and crossed the river 51 times each way yesterday. Thank you so much Richard – great to return to this paradise after 53 years! Hope to come back again. Arohanui from us all – Brenda, Eric, Bridget, Hella, Tony & Heather. 7 – 10th March 2010.
Richard took us down to Te Totara by horseback on “Limo” really neat. Spent a few days stalking. Barked at a few times and spooked one but no luck. Stayed night here with Richard, was great. Thanks for a great time – be back. Pete Olomel. 23/11/09.
