    Couldn't get over how wet it was, the ground is holding that much water now heading into winter, I think you're right about a wet winter on the coast will see a lot of slips.

    Not back there for a fortnight, will be up the coast this time in a different spot.

    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    Stags Shot 2018

    Did a 9km loop last night into the mountains after work, once the rain had cleared.

    Bit of a rushed mission, but worth the sweat. Stags were ripping into it. Saw a few, long way off tho.

    Stalked a couple of spikers. And had a neat run in with a young chamois.













    Happy days.

    Josh

    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    Just been in the hills for 6 days, if it wasn’t blowing it’s arse off it was raining, managed these two, first one was out feeding, poor head on a big bodied animal so he went, second one is an old 9 that I got Bush stalking, fatest deer I’ve ever shot.
    deer numbers seen were well down, area has been visited by Hales & co, few moans heard & only found one wallow that had been used, both stags didn’t even have a hint of being pissed up.
