This is a great article and still very relevent here in N.Z. Last year on the way back to Auckland from Taupo (about a 4 hour drive)my friend Quentin and I managed to find in good condition 1 large male turkey, 1 malard, 1 Australasian harrier hawk and a cock pheasant in absolutely perfect nick.
As I remeber we had not caught alot of fish that weekend but we did come home with plastic bags full of great feathers!
All the best.
