    Harryg's guiding service

    @Harryg gave me aring a few weeks back to see if I was free for hunt on a station down Kurow way. I couldn't turn him down so Friday night I turned up and @Munsey's place and we made our way to Oamaru for the night. Up early Sat morning, met up with @jakewire and we made our way to the station. It was blowing a gale, which we were assured was most unusual, when we got there. Harry put Munsey and me onto a gully he assured us would hold deer.
    Once we got onto the ridge where we could see down into the gully we started glassing, but nothing to see. We moved further up the ridge and carried on glassing. Somm Munsey could see a deer, then 5, then 13 then finally 20+ hinds and yearlings were seen.

    Because of the wind and open nature of the country we had to head back down the ridge, drop down into the stream and then make our way up the face towards the deer. We reckoned on a 250 -300 yd shot. We made it to the start of the last gully before the deer when I noticed two yearlings higher up the gully. Munsey and I made our way up to some rocks and set up for the shot. Only one was visible in the tussock, so I lined up on it and dropped it with one shot. The other yearling ran out onto the face and Munsey shot that one.
    It took a little bit to find then in the tussock, then the butchering and carry out commenced. Making it back to the truck just after lunch.

    Excellent hunt, great seeing those sort of numbers. The meat should taste pretty good too.
