    Fairly light timber on that one but classic shape and point position, the colour will add a few points also

    A wallow I looked at hasn't be used for a while so it looks like its over for a year.

    And yeah, it was windy.

    Yes I am lucky to have this access. Thats the bush edge on the left hand of the pic. It goes up to the Reserve. Those deer came out at about 5pm. I spotted them as they came down a spur in the bush. The wind was a stiff N/W all of the time.

    Pointer , LOC I've that moose book "Mr Moose" think it's called that, will have a look in there. I know that the last one shot was by a guy called Francis....which was a female. The photo that was in the book shows the hunter looking rather dejected beside a very large cow.
    Awesome history there LOC. always wanted to have a good look for one down there.
    There was a huge Wap head that used to hang in the Christchurch airport. Not sure who shoot that one but it was a bloody monster!
    Thanks for posting that pic.
    Was that Eddies hat?

    Good stuff. A roar to remember by the looks of it.

    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
    Pretty sure theres a few good heads from both Eddie Herrick and Percy Lyes in the Hastings NZDA hall.
