    Mt Aurum

    Hey guys just wondering if anybody has been up into the Mt Aurum hunting block up around skippers canyon? the last report i can find is from years ago just wondering if the animal numbers have recovered since it has been deemed restricted. not asking for spots and spot x's but just a general overview if youve been there.

    cheers

    Yep, I was there last week. It was a bucket-list trip for me... been wanting to get into there for years. Nice countryside but animal numbers are low due to increased pressure now that the three nearby stations owned by a certain overseas investor have been cleaned out of everything that moved.

    I went in there for a day in June or July. Found a spot on a ridge with good cover in the valley either side and sat there for a 3-4 hours. A few recent droppings around but didn't see any movement. Granted I didn't stray tooooooo far from the truck.
