Hunting trip down the line

Matt's birthday wish was to go hunting in the area he grew up in, so this weekend we packed our bags, once again shoved a mattress in the back of the truck and went on a spontaneous road trip to Opotiki. Ended up calling in on heaps of family on the way there (and back - thank for for the delicious late night dinner, Sarah!). Spent a cozy night in the bush - prepared with 3 layers of clothes and blankets - then Matt was off. Unfortunately he didn't get the deer he was after, but it was a fun weekend anyway. I managed to see a weka right next to the car which is a rare sight in this area I was told. Here's a few impressions from the trip...
