    Back into the high country

    I posted a thread on the bladesmiths forum where I spend a lot of time and to save a lot of c&p have posted a link to it here.

    A lot of tough walking but a nice load of meat to enjoy at the end of it.

    175kg is a biiiig fallow, that is for sure.
    Was that weight on the hook, or estimated on his back?
    I've carried some 90+kg deer that turned out to be closer to 50 when the scales did their thing....

    It wasn't a fallow, a nice big framed red . . .

    A wonderful yarn. It sounds like you need a son or grandson to assist with the recoveries!
    Great to hear that you’re still out and about enjoying your adventures though.
