    The things you see when you don't have a gun.

    Up at the rallies over the weekend. Went for a walk on Saturday morning with the rifle and only saw hinds. Saturday night thought I would show my daughter the deer I had seen that morning, so we quietly snuck in to about 180yds and took some pics. The group of hinds moved off so we snuck in over the next spur I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this fulla at 130yds and no f@&kin gun. Went back this morning and seen him and the hinds right on first light at 455yds as they moved into cover, didn't see him again.

    That is a magnificent animal.
    Your photo makes a great trophy. Be proud of that.

    Hunting Rule 1

    Always take your rifle!

    It makes it much easier to shoot stags that way.

    Cheers

    @Shootm

    It's the hardest lesson to learn

    Some of us even had to learn it several times before it fully sunk in.

    Bloody nice Stag, he'll still be hanging around too.

    I think I'd be cancelling work this week, doesn't look like an old animal either, impressive.

    On the upside, would you have got such a great photo if you had taken your rifle? That photo in a frame on the wall beside the head would really add some colour to the story...... And what an experience for you and your daughter.

    the picture and experience for you and your daughter are trophies. You don't always need to pull the trigger to take away awesome memories.
    Given its your folks farm I guess there's a good chance of shooting him some time soon.
