    Not as late as June but heard strong Red Stag roaring in early May in one South Island location. Was 2 or 3 years ago.

    Got this photo last Sunday. He was obviously still using a wallow.

    Not a hind calling a fawn? They can be very vocal and it sounds very similar to a roar. Don’t hear them much in the bush but shifting a mob of hinds and fawns, especially when fawns are young they can make a helluva noise.

    Had a sika stag hee haw yesterday morning in the forbidden zone of Poronui Station. I was across the river speculating on how big he was and hoping he'd wander to my side...
