    I meant to post this a while ago. But got my first ever roar stag in mid-April & my first stag bigger than a spiker. Have always just targeted spikers & hinds before. Had hit the same area a couple weeks prior but only heard a handful of roars. Went back in & they were going hard. Was on one side of a big clearing when I heard this guy roaring in the bush over the other side. So I crept around the bottom of the clearing & across the other side. Positioned myself behind a small bush just inside the clearing & let out a roar. Next thing he appeared on the bush edge 8m away. Definitely not the oldest or biggest stag in the world, but being both my first proper stag & the first one I’ve roared all the way in I was happy to pull the trigger & stoked with the result.

    kiwis spotlight the sambar too? is it that they are too difficult in the day or?

    some major trend with night time an spotlights an recently thermals for use for Aussies to try bag their Sambar... im not sure how they did it in the 1960s with open sight rifles of less power than 6.5creeps

    Yep in the area we hunt sambar it gets a fair bit of spotlight/thermal pressure, I supose it is easier to get a sambar in the light but I much prefer beating them at there own game in their environment.

    Because it's green.
    He drinks brown bottles with green labels when he's at my place.
