Son Of The Mist
Howard Egan aka “Grandad” to his friends on the FishnHunt internet forum, has been
involved with the outdoors his whole life. From Acclimatisation Societies, New Zealand
Deerstalkers’ Association, both at branch and national level, including a term as president,
Ducks Unlimited and a host of other similar organisations. He served a term on the National
Recreational Hunting Advisory Committee, was convener of the Clevedon Game Fair in 1989,
and was trophy convener for the NZ Exhibition of Hunting in 1978.
His passion has been for Fallow deer and much of this book revolves around a life spent
hunting and studying these beautiful game animals, but hunting, particularly big game hunting,
has taken him all over New Zealand as well as to Africa and North America.
A truly remarkable hunting career, which continues to this day including a Fallow buck shot
in 2007 which he regards as the highpoint in his hunting life.
He lives (with a wetland & some Fallow deer) near the Tararuas in the Wairarapa.
