    Hunting the roar

    I'm after a bit of advice, where is better for the roar, up on the tops hunting down or hunt from rivers up?

    I usually get up high and hunt down, I have also roared plenty of stags from down in the river valleys, but then lies the problem of having to hunt up into the bush if they wont come to you, always better to hunt down as you can see further down hill in the bush than up. Just my styles anyway.
    P38, veitnamcam, 199p and 4 others like this.
    Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Yeah hunting down +1.
    Also if you are hunting up and the sun is shining as the ground warms it creates updrafts that carries your smell.

    I like being up high so you can hear a lot more animals, where they are roaring and then roar them up or plan an attack. If no roaring during the day go where the hinds are feeding, they are feed all day where I go hunting at the moment, down lower if it is dry and near water.

    It's best to be up high up to hear the roars. Cannot hear much when your down in a creek and stags are high and on ridges behind. You might find one wollowing low but will wall past a heap more that are on the ridge systems.
