Police have yet to reach the body of a hunter believed to have been shot dead in Bay of Plenty. Police were called about 8am on Friday to the incident at Waikite Valley, about 30km south of Rotorua by his hunting partner who told them there had been an accident and he had shot his mate. The man's body is in a remote bush area and police search and rescue staff were battling to reach it.
