    went for a look this weekend the weather was crap. Seen a few stags, one maybe ok one but then the low cloud came in also seen a new born fawn only a couple days old. Dont have to worry about wallows been dry here on the east coast, need some fine weather.

    All our creeks, dams etc are at winter levels at the moment. We just had another 120mm in the weekend. The grass is pumping and all the deer should be in prime condition

    Took a Swedish fella and his new wife out for a hunt yesterday. He managed his first chamois which I spose isint bad seeing he only had a morning to do it.

    Stag sign was everywhere. Would have come across 15 different trees and bits of scrub being freshly rubbed up. Not just one animal doing it as it was over a few km of country.
    One stag at the top of our hunt had hinds with him. Didn't find any velvet on any of the bits I had a good look at so I would say just giving their racks a stain and Polish.

    Bad phone pic of a really old doe. Never seen such a grey face and she had no head gear.

    Just been wandering the Canterbury Hills for the last three days, howling NW winds made life very difficult, saw one young 10 pointer, this weather will be wrecking a few Feb plans for people.
    Shut up, get out & start pushing!

    Yeah lots of activity and I reckon she will be an earlier than normal start, especially in this valley.

    None of the sign lead me to think a stag of size is in the area. Good spot to take my son if he ever gets off his PlayStation but I can't be bothered myself unless I know there is a chance of a good one.

    I need to find a rub tree with tine marks that track to the top of my reach before I take any interest.

    She can shoot. Started both the kids very young.
    She is pretty competent with all my firearms especially the pistols. She like full 357 loads the most

    She likes shooting pests and comes duckshooting but hasn't shown interest in anything bigger yet

    Looks like that's about to change....bet it's easy to get her to go, something along the lines of "Hey want to get one up on ya brother? How about come and have a crack at these stags"! recon that should about do it
