    First deer for 2014 and impressive Kaimai cast antler

    I'm starting to get the better of the Kaimai Ranges now and last Saturday nailed my first stag for 2014, managed a neck shot but the bastard still managed to bolt and crash down one off those steep banked creek beds that you see in the bush and think...."fuck I'd hate to carry a decent animal up that!"
    That carry owned me !!

    Also found a impressive 6 point (12 if matched) cast antler

    pics

    A twelve out of the kaimais would be legendary

    Well done Shaneo that is a good start to the year.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    You will be wrapped in your pup. Eva is a wonderful bitch. I’ve hunted with her and Craig a bit.
