    Another long day in Arthur's pass.

    Two spikers on the deck by 07:30 and a long carry out of both animals whole.
    Both shot at about 210 meters.

    This slip must be popular as Steve shot a Ten pointer (from within 50m of where i shot these 2) on our previous trip about 3 weeks ago...and that one was heavy too!!

    Awesome. Your camera makes this look like it happened in the 80s though

    I hope you have a big freezer!

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    Check out the video on today's hunt. Little bit rough, but at 24 seconds you see a flash of the legs of the second animal:

    Yep, they're in good condition at the moment so worth the 7 hour carry out even if my knees disagree!

    The eighties had crap music. Now the fifties and sixties that is when music great.
