Discussing :: Off the Radar DVD's

There is much romance surrounding the concept of escaping the rat race to live a self-sustainable lifestyle and surely Aotearoa is the best place on earth to make this back-to-basics dream come true... comedian Te Radar is finding out. This series explores the delights and difficulties of trying to sustain oneself off what one man can hunt, grow and fish.

this is a word of warning for anyone out hunting for their dinner. it was late autumn just a few hours from dusk i headed up the farm to where the farm land met the bush. with a good deer stalk in mind i sat and admired the view i had from the top of the farm over looking the small Waikato town/ district of Matamata as i sat their i noticed a crash and banging coming through the bush towards me. i readied my rifle and sneaked just into the bush where i new a small clearing was that the deer would have to pass through. i reached the clearing jst as the crashing did. i lifted cocked my rifle, removed the safety and lifted it up to my shoulder all in the 1 movement. i peered down the scope where it creature was about 2 emerge. i did this just in time as emerged not a deer but a hunter. moral of the story identify your target and don't poach or you mite get shot. ps.i didn't fire and the poacher was escorted off the property with a trespassing notice

We too are trying to become more self sufficient, we got an kune kune pig and decided we would get a wild piglet that we would raise so we could make some bacon, well we had reared this little pig and everything was going fine until the day that they broke out of their pen and decimated my pride crop of 150 sweat corn crop. For years and years I had said that I would grow my own corn and the very first year I got whole 5 ears of corn, the pigs I'm happy to say are still alive, just!! and are now secure in their pens by an amazing kiwi invention called the electric fence.

I asked my partner to make me a fence around the vegetable garden so that my dog would not dig it up and he promised to do it by the end of November. Well, the fence is half done and we had to buy veges all summer. Screw the DVD, send me Radar, he looks useful.
