That he was once present, when a rattle sake, about three feet and half in length, had bit a horse as he was feeding in a meadow which had been mowed. The snake being observed by some workmen, was instantly surrounded by them, who, with long sticks, confined the animal to a small spot of ground in the same meadow.

They have described the status of each of the large game animal species in New Zealand and their potential for tomorrow's hunters together with a review of firearms legislation as it really is. Also covered is the massive contribution the Association is making to the education of hunters throughout New Zealand by the NZDA HUNTS programme and the building of new and modern range facilities where acknowledged experts can pass on shooting and mountaincraft skills."

Issue Number 29 is a letter, bi-lingual in English and Maori, from Governor George Grey addressed to the Chiefs of Waikato: "Chiefs of Waikato, Europeans quietly living on their own lands in Waikato have been driven away; their property has been plundered; their wives and children have been taken from them. By the instigation of some of you, officers and soldiers were murdered at Taranaki. Others of you have since expressed approval of these murders [. . .] You are now assembling in armed bands; you are constantly threatening to come down the river to ravage the settlement of Auckland, and to murder peacable settlers [. . .]" Issue 33 (29 July 1863) has a report from Colonel Alfred F. W. Wyatt on fighting in bush near Kerikeri: "a rapid and continuous fusilade was opened on the natives ensconced in the gullies and sheltered by trees from the fire of the 2B. 18th regiment. // Being completely taken by surprise, they, after a smart action of about ten minues, fled towards the denser bush; but the darkness which had now began [sic] to set in, rendered all attempts at searching for their dead and wounded perfectly futile."; Folio
