I had the interesting pleasure of staying with him and his Son along with the captive girl for a few days
I didn't realize at the time that she was captive, just thought it was an old guy with a young girlfriend who had been warned not to talk to the young visitors.
Heaps of Pigs


 

I have a friend in the bay who grew up in that area.

He goes back up there to catch eels regularly.

He knew the family well and had no idea of the situation either .

We used to park the boat in the Mangatiti stream mouth and walk the old track for an hour or 2, plenty of goats and the occasional Red. The DOC cullers told us to drift down the river at dusk for deer and that sure was good advice.

Huge Eels 

The creeks have cut up to 10m down into the Papa and the eels stay there in the inaccessible pools land locked

We would drop a carcass into a stream and wait and watch, while we had lunch.  

Now back to the topic, 1080 and insects.

You also might be a lot better Hunter than me😁

I remember back in the 80s doing live capture of Goats in the Mangapurua valley(bridge to nowhere) we would work hard all week and eat goat and beans.

In the next valley was a flock of sheep which after a few weeks of lean meat we would be driven to steal.
It was a primeval drive inherent to the hungry hunter.
Sneaking in on the prey I could taste the fat (calories), pure gold 

 

When reading this, first what come to my mind is Walt Disney " No hunting" episode.. Sorry.. for.. offtopic 😏

We were told to watch that movie before venturing on the Wanganui above Pipiriki, and we did.
