    Success !

    Just really wanted to say thanks to everyone who's chipped in with advice over the last few months . learnt heaps on what to do /Not do , this place is a gold mine of valuable information !

    I managed to get up the rangitata over the past weekend with a mate from methven .

    Found a nice looking stream and spent a couple hours walking up looking for a decent place to make camp. As soon as we made camp we started spotting tahr and began to hatch a plan for the morning.
    We stalked our way up a rough looking scree slope to try close the gap , as we got down to 200m much to my surprise I spotted another tahr poking its head up right across the scree slope from me.

    I stood there still for a few seconds expecting it to bolt as it was only 100m away staring straight at us , eventually i managed to drop my pack and get a solid rest. I took the shot and he dropped .

    Pretty stoked to get my first game animal !

    no idea how to rotate this ?

    Well done young fellah!
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Nice mate I got my first Bull that up the Rangitata a few weeks ago. Quite nice getting close to them instead of just watching them on the very tops.
