Here’s a promo from the Australian hunting show Beyond the Divide with host Rob Fickling. Jason was their pilot for their trip into the Tararua Ranges during the 2016 Roar.

The Thrupp Party
Will and Deano were more than happy to have their photo taken with this heavily timbered head, shot western Tararuas. There is more to that story I reckon...
Emma proudly holds her first ever Roar Stag, pretty darn good for a 5 year old!
Pepe flies with us all the time and returned from his South Island trip with this big 12 pointer
Dan was having lunch up on a ridge when this 12 pointer stuck his head out 5 metres away!
We photographed this stag on a return flight.
And just below that younger stag was this big one, apparently they had been going at each other all day but the two guys we flew out didn't have the time to get within range.
Lance flew out with a 9 pointer.
Blair, Evan and Steve had a great Roar once again, not sure why Evan has his hands in his pockets?
Hunter, Vic and Mick enjoyed their trip coming out with this great looking 10 pointer
Peter was pretty happy with this huge 10 pointer he shot in the middle of the Roar and rightly so!
Steve, Andy and Rob had a great Roar in the Tararuas this year, coming out with a collection of heads and a bag full of meat
Jason and Des had an awesome Roar in 2012, coming out with this good sized 12 point red.
Jacob and Mike come up trumps again in 2012, these guys never miss out on the action!
A 10 pointer for Chris and Dave
John holds up his big 11 pointer. Have a look at the tines on this one!
David and Pete worked hard for this one.
A very even 12 points and great looking Red held up here by Paddy.
A good wide head, shot in the Tararuas
An 8 pointer shot in the Roar 2012
If you were asking where JD was at the start of the roar, he was stalking this fella on the South Island and good on him, he deserved a trip away after a 5 year wait.
These two guys were flown out at the start of the 2012 Roar and they didn't do too bad for their efforts!
Nice 16 point red stag shot Tararua foothills May 2011.
