Chamois Hunt 2015

2 North Island men, on a mission, to shoot a Chamois!

After a not so quick trip to the Supermarket after a Queenstown airport pickup, we drove over the Crown Range Rd to Makaroara where we met the helicopter.

Once helicopter was loaded with the necessities (and guns & ammo) we took off into the majestic Southern Alps to find a suitable camping site in an area that I had previously scouted out for Chamois.

Over the next 5 days we experienced great hunting, saw lots of animals (Chamois & Red Deer), plenty of wildlife native to NZ, spectacular sunsets, breath taking scenery and managed to secure a great trophy Chamois and an old nanny for camp meat.

As the photo’s suggest, the weather was awesome and Michael and Andrew wished they were from the South Island, so are coming back to do it all over again in 2016.
