Goodwill hunting

More than 40 hunters young and old geared up for a hunting competition to shoot up funds for the Kaihere School parent teacher association. The fundraiser was held between May 12 and 14 with deer, pigs, hares, rabbits, possums, rats, mice and magpies weighed-in by the Thames Valley Deerstalkers Association. Kaihere PTA member Clare Ward said $1700 was raised and every hunter enjoyed the thrill of the hunt.

RESULTS: Heaviest deer, 84.3 kgs, Sam and Charlotte Harris; best deer antlers, Sam and Charlotte Harris; heaviest pig, 62.6 kgs, Max Skiffington and Graham Carter; best pig tusks, Max Skiffington and Graham Carter; most possums, Ed and Ashley Reynolds with 36; most hares and rabbits, Ed and Ashley Reynolds with 10; most rats and mice, Charlotte Harris with six; and most magpies and peacocks, Clare and Henrietta Ward with 22.
