The group will be based at The Unwin Lodge in Mt Cook so the hunting will not be tough or sleeping out.
This weekend is intended as an easy introduction to tahr hunting for all level hunters.
It is good to bring fitness but it is not essential to be a multi-sport athlete.

As early a start as you like, the smart ones will be out the door fast. Tahr are active early and again just before sunset so take enough food and warm clothing to nap for a few hours on the hill before late afternoon/ early evening hunting. Bring head torches as it is likely you will be returning in the dark
Return to Unwin Saturday evening
Those super keen can head out again otherwise late breakfast, enjoy Mt Cook and return home
