    Stags Shot 2018

    Well itís getting close to that time of the year when the Stags start to strip velvet, make some noise and chase the ladies.
    Add your photos of Stags, Bucks and Bulls shot in 2018.
    Iím going to be looking for this fulla from last year.

    A couple of Red stags Beeman and I have sharpened some bullets for I hope we are lucky enough to cross paths. The big 10 pointer is a lot bigger than it looks in the photo, the video shows it heaps better.Name:  MFDC1883.JPG

    I think the big 10 pointer is the big long 8 from last year and was running with those other two, that's why we named them the three Amigos. The 11 not sure if we have seen him before but he is a nice stag as well.

    I vividly remember watching the footage of them over a cuppa at Beemans not the highlight of all of the footage however

    No, Beeman has some awesome footage of big sambar and reds. We have learned a lot from the camera's they are worth there weight in gold for learning what is actually lurking in the woods we hunt.

    Went for a walk into the northern tararuas yesterday for abit of fitness.3 hour walk in to a good glassing lookout.Spotted 2 spikers at 756yards and flattened one of them.
    Longest shot to date.2 hour recovery and 3 1/2 back to the truck.Shattered.
    Been watching a good red stag at another location for the last 2 months,hopefully catch up with him in the next few weeks.Name:  3DF63108-0422-4BEC-B4B0-FE200C09592E.jpeg

    Stags Shot 2018

    Had some good mates ask some advice on public land chamois and stag hunting areas this weekend (normally Iíd hunt with them but was too busy, and Iím always happy to help guys with advice if theyíre decent people)

    Pointed them into a specific area where Iíve been watching some half decent stags for 3 years now, gave some specific instructions. They got a nice 9 inch buck yesterday, a first buck, and spotted the stags Iíve been keeping an eye on from afar.

    Let me know last night and asked if I wanted to come, but I couldnít. So they went back into the catchment this morning and found a nice stag. Iíve see him every year for 3 summers and heís been the same each year-highly doubt he was going to get better. The others were all there too which was good to know.

    This young fellas best stag ever, so Iím stoked for them. 37x36 inches. Itís not the easiest grunt in either to do in two day hunts, normally I overnight in there.

    Good to know some of these stags are surviving hunting pressure from other recreational guys and the helicopters

    Good Shit Josh, makes it a trophy in their eyes anyway. I still think that old 10 you took (last year i think) is one of my favorite heads I have seen the big sweeping curves to the tines give it so much character. A beast that truly made it to its prime plus if i remember right it looked fat as anything. Have the photo saved as encouragement when pushing up these huge south island hills.
