Connor McKenzie began hunting in the early 1950s when the conquest of Everest and the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II were making headlines. In the 1960s, he toured the United States and Canada, hunting moose, elk, mule deer and whitetail - with what he deems 'varying degrees of success'. He is opposed to the use of 1080, felling native timber and over-zealous gun laws.
Connor has enjoyed success as a writer for many years, having had many stories and several books published. Much of his work is based on actual experiences - both here and overseas. Today, Connor lives in the Bay of Plenty, still actively hunting with no thoughts of retirement.
