    Few pics.

    Finally we've struck a patch of weather without clag and rubbish hanging about in the hills so I have been out making the most of it.

    Only problem now is it's too hot and heat mirage makes looking for animals hard on the tops. Ah well.

    Here's some pictures from recently.

    Hopefully I will track down a good stag in the next month and then bring on the roar

    Nice pics Reuben.
    Did it get shot by a machine recently?
    There will be a big boy there somewhere. If you find one within the month put a bullet in him. You know what they are like, they could be in Canterbury by the time the roar swings round.

    A 22 from te anau shot the area for an order for James ( not james shooting like I was told) and another hunter in there said a blue and black 44 had done a wee bit too but I don't know the details of it. Didn't get too many by the looks. Deer sign for Africa.
    I will keep looking for a big fella before they wander off lookin for love.

    Cheers Stumpy, it sure is amazing country we have here. I have been reading back through the early geological survey reports 1890- early 1900's and I just think man we are lucky most of the schemes they dreamt of were uneconomical to do....

    Stumpy, you reminded me about a story in Gordon Atkinson's book I was reading. Gordon and two others cut a track up a very very steep bush ridge to the tops in the Whitcombe and the chap with one leg put in a huge effort and shot an awesome stag. Plenty of easy going tussock country around the area and a short flight in a chopper these days, it'd be worth it just for the experience.

    while I appreciate the hard yards that guys with one leg can put in , .... this is not an excuse but , the type of implant I now have is a tad of a delicate beast ...if I fell in a socket or tripped etc ... the worst that can happen is a sore stump , with maybe blisters from the friction burn when it twisted ... with me , a fall can result in shattered femur , ... broken implant , and the chance of never being able to walk on two legs ever again ... I knew this going into the surgery , ... and I accept that I am now limited in a lot of things , but my day to day living has improved 1000%..... I will take that anyday .
