A Canterbury university student tramped eight hours to win a ute.
A five-week competition gave clues to the Isuzu ute’s whereabouts.
. . . We told you it wouldn’t be easy and some of the more cunning hunters made the most of what they had in hand.
Aaron Bashnick a 22 year old Canterbury University student did just this, using his wit and determination to bag the prize.
Aaron, who is studying forestry engineering, won the ute after following the 5 week hunt.
“There were five people all right there together looking for the D-MAX, it was crazy. Three of them went right past it and didn’t see it because it was well camouflaged. I only got there a second before the guy behind me”, Aaron said.
“We knew from the clues that the D-MAX was at the back of the property but the hunt rules said no one could go onto it until nine o’clock. So to get around it we tramped in over the Tarlesse Range. It took about eight hours but I guess it was all worth it now,” he said. . .
I hope the bloke who was a second behind got a consolation prize.
