    A cripples Roar

    Hi all, with my knee and leg still taking me out of action for big trip and not letting injury stuff the roar up, I've resorted to the quad bike off tracks on a mates property backing onto DOC land. Spent a couple of days glass deer with most of them in hard to access spots and not interested in shooting them on the grass paddocks. I would rather roar up a stag in some scrub just off the track. We spotted some rubbish spikers with 2" antlers but couldn't get them into a shootable recoverable position. On the second to last day i manage to a 6 pointer with a broken antler during the velvet period a few months ago, he was 180m across from me and 80m down off the track. I setup off the side of the track shooting of a day bag and stuffed the shoot up shooting him just under the eye instead of between the eyes, he was wobbling about then gave him another in the neck to finish him off.
    I hopped my walk back the up the track to bike and to the spur i shot the stag on. Then i heard a stag roar i gave a roar back and the stag came in closer for another roar, i replied so did he still coming in closer, putting the binos on him he was the 13 pointer we were watching all week but he was still a young stag with potential and would be a really good trophy in another year or two if someone else doesn't get him. Any this stag came right up to the track then he bolted down the hill a bit.
    Time to go down and sort my shot stag out, pushing through the scrub i run into that same 13 pointer 5 more times at one stage i seen his body for a bow shot if i had a bow. We even had a wee roar off at each other for a few minutes and roared up a 8 pointer at the same time. One very cool morning.

    My broken 6 pointer


    13 pointer in the distance, I roared him up from 800m away, he already had 3 hinds to spread his genetics around and seen one of his sons a 9 pointer with 7 hinds.


    Heres a vid of the big boy coming up to the bike.

    Nice, at least you are out there doing it. The 13 should be a great stag in a few more years.

    Hehehe, I'm getting a little green with envy. Definitely in the wrong part of the country.

    Maybe you could try baiting or roaring and a hide like the Americans do.
