Got a P.M. from a mate over on another forum recently inviting me to come along on a fly in trip for the red deer roar/rut was I in???????
does a bear pooh in the woods???
farkin oats Im in Very Happy
well me old mate is a bit hard of hearing (take note you young whippersnappers ,repeated firing of rifles without ear protection will catch up with you)
"Mike can you ring the chopper????"
so yip I rang and penciled in chopper...then got heck of fright at cost,we were thinking $1000 for in and out flight..yeah nah try $800 each way $1600 both ways
so I rang around....$1500 each way!!!!!!!! Shocked Shocked



$3500 both ways wtf wtf

so thinking origonal price was okish had yak with 3rd member of the party,we both decided fly in and out was better option,now to convince old bugga
after a bit of umming and ahhhing "yip will do it"
I was telling one of my customers while sowing his fert and he says"hang on a tick...picks up phone...how ya going shag??? got a man here to talk to you" and hands me the phone
got flight in and out for $1550 and hanger is 150kms closer Laughing Laughing Laughing
so that saves us on petrol and best of all 1 1/2 hrs driving



tick tock tick tock
only 8 more days to wait

Ya luck bugger...I would loooove a deer hunt in NZ mate. How many days is the hunt mate, or is it just a single day? If the hunt is a few days, then $500 a head for the trip in and out is a damn fine deal. Hopefully they can also carry all the meat for you as well.

Have a great hunt mate...and of course we will expect to see the obligatory pics.

Have a great time, Elvis. Do go with the pictures, mate. I looked at flights to NZ last night. Wow, I wish they were $500 a head! Even topped your $3500 guy for two.

Bullets? Cartridges slimjim, cartridges. Or if you wish ammunition.

It's a bit hard to kill anything with just bullets.

[damn Texans anyway]

Yep...definite difference Bushy...we are Brothers in Arms, but cousins in all other respects. That is the operative word...RESPECT. We like nothing better than taking the p1ss outa one another, but when the chips are down, we stand shoulder to shoulder, back to back.

I gotta organise a trip over to the Land of The Long White Cloud before I get too old to enjoy the trip. Same as I'd love to organise a trip to the US, but it would cost me near on $10K for a couple of weeks, and I don't have that sort of money to throw around.
