    Four minute Tahr meat hunt

    Only managed to grab snippets of footage of this walk, but made something out of it

    For me, save weight. I never carry bone or skin out of the hills. Takes only half an hour to bone an animal out. Let it cool for a while on the ground in the shade, then pack it all in my day pack in pillowcases. As soon as I'm back in the truck it gets taken out and spread on the floor in front of the passengers seat so the aircon can keep it as cool as possible. Usually I'll take my iceytek bin with ice in, so its straight into the truck in that, but a mate borrowed it at xmas and I havent got it back yet.

    Fit? Haha. The most unfit I have been in my life.

    Didn't wear putties/gators because it was 25-30+ C, hotter in the sun. Lucky I wasn't nude actually it was so hot.

    Yes - the synthetic Putties that I have are like a bloody plastic bag wrapped around your lower leg/ankle !!
    I use the top of old socks (ex long Gumboot ones) with the foot part cut off - stops debris but they do roll up a tad - also keep the socks clean from Hook Grass - my biggest hate this time of year with hairy legs
    Always been temped to shave my legs - but would dread to think what the lads would start saying so put up with a knife scrape when back home to remove.

    I have never eaten Thar meat - which is better Thar or Chamois ??

    I don't mind a bit of crap in my boots at this time of year. Haha. Tahr is better, a roast off this wee fella last night was delicious, as good as a nice mutton roast.

    Handy area. Gets hunted a bit. Plenty of animals to chase around though.

    Thar is nearly as good as Fallow IMO, Chamois is nearly as good as rutting Billy Goat.

    That's interesting - as i would have thought (looking at the animals) that it would have been around the other way.

    Beats shopping in the super market better meat too. Good having those handy spots to pick up an animal or two when needed.
