Still alive post/early roar hunt

Postby HunterP » Mon Apr 04, 2016 4:07 pm

I'm pretty quiet on the forum these days but occasionally I like to drop by and say hi

Last week I spent a few days chasing sika in the Kaimanawas. Plenty of hee-hawing going on in there but not to much single calling - height of the rut is coming!!

Saw plenty of deer but mostly hinds and the odd spiker, nothing with decent headgear :x Never mind, still time to get that illusive 8

Here are a couple photos

Back at it tomorrow until Friday - wish me luck!

Well done on those pics. If you can get those, you will be sure to get that stag. :D

You should make your move soon If you are going into the Upper Motu and Raukumaras Phillip. They have been threatening to 1080 the place if the deer population is not reduced.

We could take the Landcruiser Campervan and I would drop you of at the top and pick you up when you come out at the bottom. I wouldn't mind having a look into some of that country again.

That would be one hell of a trip Scribe. I'm going back in for a sika mission next week for good long stint. If I manage to shoot a decent stag the Raukumaras will my next destination. I'll keep in touch. Cheers.
