    The twins head south.

    So at it again, we have had this idea to try chase spring tahr on the east coast. We would normally head down in November but a pregnant partner due, had us booking a time off in October. We didnít see meany nannies about but quit a few bulls. one mob larger then 25 animals ranged from 10inch-12inch bulls. We had great weather with killer days of 25degs burning the shit of of us but still spotting bulls feeding low and during mid day heat. I had a order for two small bull head skins, so we took two for meat and head skinned them. Covering over 53ks walking in 4days by myself and my brother really tested the endurance of out legs and fitness. Still room for improvement. Overall awesome trip again and maybe next time I think the west coast is calling, maybe @Jit @WillB will make it next time? Name:  6954D47B-3A1A-438E-9565-2997886C536B.jpeg

    Frickin' awesome stuff, guys! Very sad to miss it but hell 54 km straight up and down... if you guys are tired I would have been completely and utterly stuffed. But absolutely, next time for sure.

    Sounds like an awesome trip with some great country. That huge mob would’ve been a sight to see.

    Cheers Simon, all the pictures are taken from my phone. I should invest in something that could offer better zoom etc.

    Hard to pick from the photos but how alike are you both? If one of you shoots a cracker the other can take the credit when the pics are posted lol
    Good shit though and well done.
