Hmm went tramping on Sunday and met two 77 year olds on top of Little Mt Peel. It made me puff getting up there and I'm only half that guys age

I don't know if you have ever heard of Bert Barra (http://www.nzdeercullers.org.nz/Profiles.aspx?Category=Bert%20Barra) who happened to have the highest day tally for a Govt. dear culler. If my memory serves me properly it was 127 in one day.
At 73 he was still tramping into his camp at Mitre Flats along his own track with a cross cut saw over his shoulder. I'm not sure how long after that age he continued to do so.
A real tough old character he was, with a heart of gold. Called his hut (something) Rum Jungle. A mate would pick him up and take him to Masterton where at the Horse Shoe he would acquire a flagon of rum. When he got home he would pour half into another flagon and add water and that would be his ration for the week.
