    Plenty roaring but nothing shot.

    3rd day out this week and the Reds were going off today, second stag sighted in the scope so far in the Rimutakas, a very small 6 point with small Stag syndrome going full retard, everytime I moaned at him he walked away, but when I thrashed some branches he got really worked up and would walk back, I got to within 10m of him and watched as he threw his head back roaring in my direction, thats actually the first time I have been so close and sat and watched a Stag roar undisturbed, (probably because I didnt pull the trigger) he really did have a sad little set of antlers, after I had some fun with him watching him getting totally pissed off, I stood up allowing him to lock eyes on me, he then turned and crashed off through the bush, it was a pretty good feeling to be that close and decide to let him go. I havent seen any decent antlers yet, but am still having a fantastic time stalking in and getting them to roar down my ear. Good times.
    Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Well done, you will have a better chance of shooting a big one by not shooting the small ones.

    Im not all that interested in shooting for trophies, but it would have just been a waste to shoot for the meat this time of year when I can drop a hind in better condition.
