    Went out last night and seen couple of spikers and a young fat 6pt very tempting to fill the freezer. Southerly change made it nice hunting but wind was blowing right up my ar@#. Seen a couple of new wallows but that will be hinds etc cause of the heat for the last week. Still couple days left this weekend

    Still in velvet in Wellington, a couple of stags floating around and interestingly hanging around with the hinds already.

    Bit of activity in wallows too with this heat.

    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    seen a couple red stags last night. still no signs of stripping. Wind picked up so decided to head home with my young fella when i spotted a light colour animal down the gully on a clearing. Quickly closed the gap to get a better look and on closer inspection it was a fallow buck and it walk in behind a strub bush. While waiting with no patients looked down the fence line and a fallow spiker was standing there ready to jump though the broken fence. Freezer got the better of me Dont get alot of fallow on this property so will enjoy.

    @Sarvo can you explain the difference in the lettering between the old Pulsar thermal monoculars and the new models. Wanted to get one and had it all lined up then tax bill got in the road.
    The letters have me stuffed Iíve read as much as I can. The numbers I understand
    It would be used only for bush stalking.

    Not exactly sure what you meaning by " explain the difference in the lettering between the old Pulsar thermal monocular ???
    They are different models
    Helion XQ and Helion XP are the latest handhelds the XP has double the resolution so gives more clarity and definitions
    The XP is more expensive and some say you better to buy a Helion XQ50 instead of a Helion XP38 - range identification is the same - but a 50 is better than a 38 (like scopes bigger aperture so more light/FV etc)
