    You are 110% correct
    A guy who came into our Pureora block via chopper every Roar - did well on the Stags
    When I heard him Roaring one day (actually did not even think for 1 second it was him but found out later from Pilot) I couldn't believe my ears
    We (mate above who could do "the perfect Roar" were winding him up from across the Waione River (no way was he coming across, so b4 you safety chaps wind up as well)

    Christ - he sounded like a Bobby Calf when its hoof was jammed in the truck grating
    We were pissing ourselves "until" we found who it was :-(

    You get distance with a good Horn for sure
    To me that's what its all about
    I seldom shot Roaring Stags- always keen to do the teasing and let another visiting hunter mate go in

    No - the mew/neh (Fawn/Hind) sound works way better - but only inside 100m
    If by self - stick the Horn away as soon as you know they have stopped approaching

    But - looking and VLogs and hearing stories - there is a huge Red Deer build up in some areas - so could be some gully's fair vibrating this year and Roaring will provoke way better responses than past 30/40 odd years
    Unfortunately - I don't think I will experience that here

    @DavidGunn, nice big horn that, but sure it is not a Buff horn, be a Scrub Bull/Wild Bull maybe, I used to work on some Outback Stations in the day & we cut some huge horns off the Wild Brahman Bulls, the "Red Bulls" are near all gone now !

    And if you decide to do a run of them, there are plenty of people who will buy the 'latest model" off the production line.

    Old mate here is due for a removal. Might be able to roar in a decent buck mouse during the next lockdown with them...
