    Hit up Arthur's at the moment 1200-1400m altitude. Been seeing a few the last few times I've been up there lately. Start from valley floor in the dark and be up on the tussock just after sunrise, the bucks are so easy to spot. They will walk up and down the spurs and ridges looking for other chamois.
    A nanny I saw on the weekend.

    Literally any of the tracks around Arthur's will have chamois up there this time of year. East branch Edwards river. Mingha or deception river. Just hit the tops and let the binos do the walking.
