Raukokore Red Deer

The Raukumara area is on the North Island's East Coast. The pristine native bush is broken by crystal clear boulder infested rivers and streams. Often the easiest way to travel is using these natural highways and hunting and camping among clear streams and the untouched native bush is something special.

Our hunting commenced that evening.  As we strolled up a nearby side creek, I was excited to see the extensive deer sign. As a hunter my initial view of huge deer numbers was solely based on the thought of securing an animal.
