Thanks 'bean' for the trip report, I have never had a chance to explore the Boyle. There used to be a Cullers Base Camp there which I have seen photos of. A few years back we held a Deer Cullers reunion at the Boyle and I was on my way down to it when my old Field Officer died. So I diverted my route to Mangaweka and attended Henrys funeral and got on the piss for a couple of days and never made it any further. I would like to try again to get down into that country for a good look around.

You are right 'bean'. There must have been plenty of deer here once. These are from the Deer Cullers Gallery

An interesting read is "A sock in my stew" or very similar about Dick Morris a private skin shooter who hunted the area around the 40's or 50's with aecess from Glyn wye and Glyn hope? Stations. I believe he was based in the hope.
