Season finale for 2013 – 2014

It feels a bit surreal really but my last hunting party , Stu Moris group from Timaru have left for Stewart Island and a bit of R and R . The weather meant they stayed two days with me but the time wasn’t wasted. A bit of hunting equipment shopping in Invers and plenty of oyster eating and drinking at the Anchorage / Golden Age and watching the All Blacks come solid with me against England went down well. Thats it for this season. Another great group of guys.

Ian Watson from Gisborne bought down another of his ” this is my last trip” groups. Ian has things down to a fine art. I hope its not his last trip as I look forward to seeing him every year.

Plenty of deer seen and reasonable numbers got but no one got a big head.Blue cod ,paua and oysters helped alleviate the disappointment. Most of all however St Is is a great sanctuary to enjoy with good mates.

The Oyster Festival weekend was extremely busy for me. The weather blew out part of our party damn it but that was taken in good spirit by everyone and the party continued around the town unabated. Great guests. Liz was a great help setting bedding up but when it came to the big wash at the end we took it in to a laundrette who did it for us.

The summer season saw very good guest numbers and I was lucky to have some really good helpers. Lisa from Germany and Carla and Farku from Argentina were stand outs. My thanks to all my helpers. I will be looking for a few for the next season when I get back.

I expect to reopen about mid September.
