Hunting Aotearoa - Series Five, Episode Six

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2009

Adults only

– DoC ranger Eddie Te Kahika on the need for culling

– Howie, on the possibility that Spencer’s partner Sam will join them
I’ve got a few records: loudest fart in a presbyterian church in the North Island.
