    I have a few good goat heads and one that is 37 inches wide Scores around 110 DS so yours should easily go over a 100 DS.

    Mate I'm not too sure! No idea actually. He was pretty substantial. @Blisters

    I was actually just lining that buck up out the back of Snee Rd and Shootm appeared out of the blue and elbowed me in the eye, and took the shot himself.

    The Caples looks nice. Good effort Shootm. Nice pics too.

    Not the roar any more.
    But I almost shot this stag twice very early in the roar ... only for him to get away or the fog come in and beat me.

    Spent a solid month hunting other places during the roar and finally got back to see if this guy was still around.
    Found him with 6 mixed age hinds at 1500m and pulled off an easy stalk in to 310m for a short wait and regulation shot in the shoulder.

    Nice to finally get him as I had seen him a couple of times last year also.

    He was a big unit but in poor condition compared to the stags I shot during the roar.

    Hunting in East Cape region. I missed some seriously gut wrenching opportunities. Identified a beauty of a stag at 120M, 14pts and fired what i thought was a kill shot... heard the impact... Spent the next 5 hours trying to track him down. Seriously gutting. In the end I came away with a fatass spiker which was needed to fill the freezer. Great trip regardless! Many big animals spotted which got the adrenaline pumping!!!
    That's a serious goat! Would easily take out your local and maybe national NZDS goat trophy!

    Cheers! I had no idea, I actually saw the goat 2 days before I shot it. Will have to measure it. @300CALMAN
