    You didn't leave the scrubbers head up on a tree on the track down to the Ruapae Falls valley? If so, I can understand why you didn't post a pic

    1st Stag to hit the deck 11th April - never this late before
    2 Stags going well at 11am - this was the lesser of the 2
    Had to take him as he was coming straight into me and main Stag was holding Hinds (def 1 Hind) 30m back)
    Thought main boy was going to come in after shot - but Hinds probably put pay to that - he Roared twice after my shot
    @sneeze - those bullets - he dropped with a front on chest shot like a head shot. @phillipo - might be leaving the Shotgun in the cupboard this year - this Kimber is me to a tee

    So - a Pelorus mid aged trophy

    Obviously really well, the stag didn't hear him coming at all!

    They were good - but I now recognize what you said earlier - it is not clean cut on direction of where the noises you "want" to concentrate on are coming from
    I also had trouble monitoring my calling the Stags in - I mean my volume of call to them
    But - practice I think would help

    I have actually just sold them to a FM - and I will get another pair in later
    My hearing is very good (only part that still works OK)
    I dislike having anything on my head - I get hot quickly with them on and I do not like them around water - sea/creeks
    For shooting range/clay - they would be brilliant - for someone with impaired hearing - brilliant
    I think on Sika in open Beech - be very good too

    I have been keeping an ear on a stag that has been roaring intermittently for about 4 days. He is in some hard tight country and I can't really be bothered getting a look at him as I am sure he isint anything flash. I went out after dark for a yodel and 3 others I haven't heard before and closer again started up.
    I have heard them well into May in some places around here.
