    The Roar - Let's see some photos!

    It's nearly that time of year, 5-6 weeks and it'll be all on.


    Lets see some photos you have that are roar/rut related/stag or bucks you've shot to get that keenness flowing, and get some positive hunting material rolling on the forum about one of the most exciting times of year for a deer stalker.


    Here's a handful of photos off my computer...





























































    Feel free to share anything roar/rut related!!! We're keen to see it.

    FFS Josh, you could have put up a photo of a spiker (or one of Tim's deer) as a starter to make us feel better before blowing us out of the water with these ones

    This one here whilst not a great head was a great hunt.
    The type of hunt where once you have shot it the fun has stopped. No more up close roaring. Hairs no longer sticking up on the neck and arms. Just the bush returning to silence except for the birds.




    and this one just for shits and giggles (gotta compete with josh somehow)




    It's also about the people you meet, or not



    Can't forget this guy




    not a roar pic but wifes first deer

    I cant compete with Josh and those heads, most of the stags I shoot don't have antlers.

    Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    A great trophy doesn't have to be all about the best head. It's the hunt, the story, the mates, the memories that go with any head that makes it one to cherish.
    I wish I could find the pic of my first deer, a spiker shot with mates during the roar of 2004. To me it is a trophy

    [QUOTE=JoshC;340180]Nice potential Munsey

    Yes Was showing great potential , was back when the choppers stopped shooting because of the 1080 in the meat . Goes to show what 3 years does . Seen him and 15 other stags . One was a cracker will try and find photo . Sadly they started up again and him and his 15 mates vanished into salami and German sausage

    Its more about the camaraderie, getting away from the phones wives kids boss work etc and some camp tucker shit talking etc and a bit of meat than a whack of antlers for me.
    If it was about the antlers I wouldn't live in Nelson.

    This was my first roaring stag - Pohangina Valley - always called it Nine Point Knob thereafter
    Must have been 1965 - 30.06 on drilled 150gr US Ball ammo - bloody hell that was fifty roars ago - I hope to get back there this year
