    Title: Bulls, Bucks & Bureaucrats the Lilybank Safari Lodge Story
    Author: JOLL GARY

    Lillybank Safari Lodge was a trail breaking world class quality guided hunting operation catering to international hunters visiting New Zealand. Gary Joll and his business partners secured the pastoral lease to Lilybank Station, Lake Tekapo, the first time in history of pastoral leases in New Zealand that such a lease was transferred to a hunting safari company. Almost before the ink was dried some sections of bureaucracy had changed their minds (re transfer of the lease) and tried to stop Gary and his fellow shareholders in their attempts to establish an innovative business. As a pioneer of guided tourist hunting and dedicated trophy hunter himself, this is a very personal story about one man's dream that in spite of the obstacles placed in his way by government departments succeeded and became the model for most of the successful guided hunting operations in New Zealand today. Gary was the founding president of the New Zealand Professional Hunting Guides Association, was their first elected life member, is a Master Measurer for Safari Club International, and has been internationally honoured by SCI for his professional contribution to the industry.
