    I went and checked out an old spot....left a promising stag in 2014 and 2015 but work and boats got in the way 2016 2017 and this year there is almost no sign at all where as in the past scree was always covered in prints......maybe time to take up bush stalking again....

    Lol. None. I have been seeing a few animals driving over and back lately.

    Had a bit of a look this afternoon seen a couple stags,the older stag was chasing his hinds around and sure he had a couple of moans. Weather wasn't the best shit easterly and hard to hear. A lot of stag wallows getting used and started to get cooler in the mornings this week. Another ten days and they will be into it

    OK. Got out for a look tonight wind still blowing from the east got on to a couple of stags went to close the gap and the wind got me. Only pushed them up the gully further so didn't really spook them to much. Plenty of roars heard. Made my way back up to the main ridge and got in to a roaring match with a stag on the opposite face but wouldn't come out into any of the clearings. Still letting out the old roar when i was making my way home
    A week early in this area but its been a excellent season with plenty of grass and hinds seem to be fat as.
