Introducing Going Bush

At the beginning when I decided to study possums I was frustrated about looking for information that would give me some practical answers about possuming in New Zealand

So the decision to design a website around the issues and questions I faced when starting out was easy, and hopefully my experiences will help you avoid the same problems I encountered.

Like many other kids across the country, possum hunting has been a part of my life growing up in rural New Zealand. As an adult, the possum is still a strong topic of commercial and environmental discussion and so I hope that this website is a useful source of information to those seeking it and/or a good chance to exchange tips and stories with my fellow hunters.
