The combination of boots on the ground experience combined with an academic foundation built over a lifetime of work and learning is a rare thing in this day and age.

    Tahr 101 - What you need to know about whats happening to our Tahr in New Zealand

    Willie Duley delivers an audio version of the Tahr story unfolding right now in New Zealand.
    Willie explains a brief history, how we have found ourselves in this position, and how our conservation minister and Forest and Bird representatives continue to mislead the NZ public around the eradication of Tahr, their so-called “justification” for it, and the total lack of consultation with relevant stakeholders.
    Share this far and wide - kiwi’s need to understand how the extreme views held by a very small group is being forced on us.

    Khan Adam - Passionate Hunting Dad

    Kuran catches back up with Khan on another hunt, this time Khan has his 8-year-old son Max with him sharing the adventure. We take a look at fathering young hunters, things that Khan has learned along the way, and what that final destination might look like. Somewhere along the discussion Khan starts asking Kuran questions, the conversation “bobs and weaves” from topic to topic very honestly. Kuran gets a quick chat with Max also to share how it looks in the eyes of an eight-year-old.
