Calling all sika hunters!
Over the last couple of weeks I have received several DMs and emails from hunters looking for information on sika country.
I’m always keen to help out if and where I can and while my own sika hunting skills are questionable, what I have done is cover a lot of ground in the pursuit of sika, for example…
Back Ridge Hut & Bivvy, Ballard Hut, Big Ben, Boyd Hut, Cameron Hut, Castle Camp, Clements Mill Rd, Desert Rd/The Needles, Dominie Bivvy, East Creek, Gorge Tops , Harkness Hut, Haumingi, Kiwi Mouth Hut, Kiwi Saddle Hut, Lower Ripia, Makahu Saddle Hut, Makino Hut, Mangatainoka/Mangatainoka Heads, Mangataramea, Mangaturutu Hut, Manson Hut & Bivvy, Middle Hill Hut, Ngaawapurua Hut, Oamaru Valley, Omarukokere Tops Campsite, Otamateanui Stream/Makomiko Stream Junction, Otorehinaiti River, Otutu Hut, Rocks Ahead Hut & Bivvy, Ruatea (Jap Creek) Stream, Studhome Saddle Hut & Bivvy, Te Pukeohikarua Hut, Te Ruatakaikare Tops, Thunderbolt Stream, Tiki Tiki Stream, Tin Kettle Spur, Tussock Hut, Upper & Lower Kaipo Valley, Venison Tops (Tira Lodge) and the Waipakihi River.
Some of these areas I have visited once, some I have spent hundreds of days in.
Anyway, whether your the most experienced sika hunter in the country or a complete novice, I’d like to help you discover some new terrain or find a new sika hunting spot.
