    A good start

    Had a good start to last January with a stag not long into the new year.



    Had a similar start to this year.



    Hope this year continues in a similar vein as the last...

    Nice one. Pedicle damage? Seems lower to the skull on that side but might be photo angle

    Hmm Maybe. Didnt look too close. Was almost dark when I shot it so was more concerned with getting the meat and when I went back a couple days later to get the photo the fly's were a bit thick to hang round. Was in a group of 5 stags and was thus culled for his short comings.

    Normally people say its a pity to shoot a stag in velvet because it may have been a trophy. Not so in that case! I would like to have seen that last stag in hard antler, it would have been really wierd.

    1st poor bugger didnt have a chance - hes buried up to his neck in the ground.

    Would have been a nice head when hard - tasty all the same

    Na the first one was poor too. Shot on the south coast in Fiordland. Just the angle of the camera I'd say, that and the fact he is buried up to his chin...
