    Whenever I get to go hunting, who cares if they are roaring.... (Waiting for the flames) just enjoy the time off and away from the rat race, what's the saying "a bad day in the mountains beats a good day at work"

    I am deaf but the wife wants a couple of noisy buggers silenced, been going for a few nights, so yeah, the roar in the Kaimai's is already on and by April it will all be over.

    The farm stags have only just started at home in the last week. Its only a few bellows in the morning and evening. Same shit every year. They will roar when the hinds are cycling.

    My prediction is the days I go it will be quiet no roaring, when I am at work they will be roaring like lions. A few roars will be heard that are 10km away. Full moon 18th so the good quality herds may be going off especially if we get a cold snap. I haven't seen the weather.
    Most importantly Stay safe ID your target beyond all doubt, have fun.

    Stewart Island "the rat race".
