Pikau and Rifle: Hunting Deer, Thar and Chamois in the Southern Alps, Fiordland, Stewart Island and Longwoods

Author(s): Daryl Marshall


136 pages, incl over 70 colour photos. Daryl Marshall, when a veterinary student was employed from 1965 by the Forest and Range Experiment Station (A branch of the Forestry Service) during his University vacations, doing ecological surveys on chamois, thar, red deer and wapiti. The amusing things that happened are captured plus the risky adventures experienced. Many later hunting trips to the West Coast, Fiordland and Stewart Island are described. This book is more a story of the hunters than one of shooting trophy animals.
