    Up bright n early Saturday morning, perfect conditions, even had to wait 10 mins so one could see to walk into the bush. Checked trail cams over rut pads from previous week, tidily squat, worked around a few good looking spurs n ridges till about 10am with nothing heard until I turned and headed for out. Had a stag roaring for about 10 mins then he lost interest in me, the wind had been swirling abit for the last half hour, was ready for a brew anyhow. I expected more noise in action in this area as up to a couple of dozen rut pads had been observed prior this day. All good fun tho.

    Is it normal to not notice any rubbed tree's in a place mainly filled with punga ferns? Not much to report from the middle of the kaimai's other than I found 2 wallows. Lots of clumps of stag poo. Lots of it fresh.

    I followed your advice about the supple jack and it worked quite well. Was quite quiet too. I think I will bring the secateurs but not use them.

    It is a nice place so I am keen to get out again.

    Be interesting to see the action after this nasty weather passes tonight
    Be a few out in the Wilderness cuddled into their sleeping bags today I imagine

    Been a very odd season here in Peorus Sounds
    Had a Stag on the section at 2.30am this morning - thought it was a Hind barking at me - but it was a Stag (1 of 3 in Cam pics below)
    So - yes 3 Stags just around house last night - 1 Stag has traveled approx 1.3Ks from another Cam around corner in a 3-6 hour timeframe - so the Stags are full on working the Hinds
    Its different here to what I was used to in Central North Island - Stags do not hold Hinds here they let the Hinds carry on pretty well as normal and Stags do the rounds cheaking them out where they are feeding etc
    The bottom pic is a Stag - he is a rising 3yr and has 1 spike about 3" high - he is travelling the most - horny bastard

    Just having a coffee with a mate at the local sports shop.
    Run into a fella who says he shot a 46x46 dead even 18pt stag up a river close to town.
    I congratulated him on the new Nz red deer record

    That would be in a top 5-10 12 point stag ever shot in NZ.
    As Mathias says, it must have really long bottom tines to reach that.

    A 46x46 dead even 18pt stag would likely break all kinds of wild deer, world records so I think this guy might be slightly confused as he was very ho hum about it.

    Theres some tin,y buggers around all the same just saw a pic of really nice 14pt stag shot in an area I go to all iv ever really seen in the area is crap , this young fella rocks up new to hunting & blows over a cracker
    I was out on Sunday defiantly less roaring spotted a young stag crossing a gully in a hurry , I gave a roar he came over & checked us out , then spied a better looking animal around a k away he was on the move as well defiantly on a mission waiting on the weather to clear to head back & see if we can find him to get a better look , heading home I spied a hind around 70M away she moved off then a big stag moved into view reg got ready to shoot but when he moved I could see his head it was munted at first glance I thought 1 beam had been snapped in half but turned out his antlers were disfigured he had a droopy ear as well , wondered if he,d been hit with some buck shot or something along the lines should have shot it but didn't incase there was something decent around , iv seen a stag with no antlers twice now both times I had no chance of a shot , they had better look out outside of the roar !
