EP 17 - Interview with Pete the Bushman: Hunting Tales and Back-Country Lesson also knowen as Possum Pete. We talk about the Possum Pie thing for about 2 minutes, and then move on to great hunting stories some humour and his book! Find out how to cook a Possum, I know now I had being doing it wrong! An Interview with a true New Zealand bushman, of a life lived against the grain, of adventure in New Zealand's thickest wilderness and a lifestyle any Kiwi Hunter would envy. Pete the Bushman has lived a life inseparable from the bush - these are his stories of running down deer on foot, heli-hunting in his own chopper, finding the perfect woman and eking out a living from the bush. He and his wife Justine run the Bushman's Centre, 35 mins south of Hokitika, established in 1991 as a place to show visitors how local people use the South Island forest. http://www.pukekura.co.nz http://tvnz.co.nz/sunday-news/possum-pies-cafe-in-trouble-6026020 Again thank you to Pete & Justine for this great interview, and I look foward to meeting you in person some time soon.
