Helicopter Deer Hunting 1973

Thanks again to Gary Wandrey from the USA for these pictures of helicopter deer hunting up the Styx Valley near Hokitika in 1973... I remember the deer recovery using Hughes 500s rather than the Hiller UH12 as photographed

Does anyone know the name of the pilot and shooter???

Also included a couple of the local watering holes... Sadly the Red Lion is gone but the Railway is still with us...
