    bloody ripper - an old donkey by the looks. Great to see a mature stag like that coming out of Pureora's.

    Happy hunting boys.

    Tomorrow afternoon for me, but I'm on the southern end of it. Was planning to stop out but the WX isn't looking so hot.

    Hoping to get back out Saturday but weather doesn't look promising.But have seen your results @Tahr in all weather so still might go anyway depending on how things go here on the ranch.

    They were back early as the wind was a strong NW not ideal for the Northern end.

    Wow that's a bit of history right there, wasn't there only four bulls ever shot here? Do you know the story to it?

    three bulls shot, two by my wife's great grandfather Eddie Herrick. all the family have left is that bull moose and an absolute donkey wapiti (and a few African heads). he shot a pair of waps right beside each other and i'd love to know where these are now and get them reunited... i think quite a few heads were gifted to Lindisfarne College which was his old homestead before it was a school and maybe Hastings deerstalkers
    i've read his old diaries and checked out all the maps which her gran still has. quite cool stuff.
    sorry for the diversion off topic

    Yep I thought it could only be the one of the legends, Herrick or Lyes. Don't know who shot the last one
