    No other Fallowin about this week??

    i hit nother herd this past 24 hours and did not hear Boo, see a mob of Does with no male at all, two seperate does........ but the oddness is not hearing anything distant.

    this is one area i have watched closely with outsider connections targetting bucks only for meat /antler watever for the past 5 years, clueing onto it before last year rut and noticing F/A age in them altho some potential, this year the dash has been done a bit harder perhaps with the miss out last year and those velvetys that were shot up over Christmas/ January Were the ones that are spose to be Grunting , i rekon.

    I hunted Monday and Tuesday, no croaking, scrapes are getting more use with several bucks using them, and more thrashed silver ferns than a couple of weeks ago.

    in aus we r getting some frosts in this coming week, which hasnt happened yet.

    typical warm weather and a sporadic rut is the norm here, its had a start but hasnt fired right up i wouldnt of thought but when it warms up temp wise, they still rut but it doesnt seem to be as vocal sometimes, an nek minit ya get a good day and the next or so, they shut right off!

    Going to head out into the bush this week , forecasts predict rain, brilliant! Anyone got tips on keeping the scope lens clear of rain drops? I’m worried that keeping a lens cap on will make me miss animals because of the extra movements needed to remove the cap, but a wet lens will make me miss animals as well. I remember missing a feral ram in the waianakarua because of wet lenses. Probably going to pick up some anti fog gel from repco or an optometrist and see how that goes.

    I made ‘hoods’ from bicycle inner tubes for my scope and taped them on with insulation tape, not a 100% cure but certainly helped.
    Downside was they seemed to cut down the amount of light getting through the scope.
