    Queensland deer

    Was driving upfrom Brisbane to Gladstone a few evenings ago (on holiday hence lack of postings) and bugger me, saw a stag from the corner of my eye (I was driving) for a millisecond. We were between Bundaberg and Gladstone. Didnt look like a Red in the breif look I got so does anyone what would it might have been and are there many deer about in Queensland?? (The locals here in Gladstone dont seem to know what a deer is, or bush either despite the fact that most of them drive flash 4wds that look like they go to the carwash more often than up a track)

    Heaps of deer there. Used to drive between Caloundra and Chinchilla twice a week.
    Seen Fallow once but mostly reds.
    Never saw a Yowie unless one of the locals count.

    Cats have nine lives-which makes them ideal for experimentation...

    Is there any restrictions on foreigners going over there? I remember there was some Argentinian fella who guided a lot. He had some cool pics.

    No, you can hunt public land in Uruguay and Argentina although a lot of the good Chital are free range but on private land. In Uruguay they have a pretty good setup over there where all the public land is split into blocks, you can hunt year round but if you want to hunt a certain area you call the local council and "book" it for the day/s you want. This stops people shooting each other in the bush like the retards here as you always have your own area and the local council has a good idea of hunter numbers etc, you can only book a certain area a set amount of days per month to stop people hogging all the good blocks. Chital are fair game, Pampas deer are slowly recovering and although you can hunt them (on private land only) most farmers and landowners there respect the fact they are a recovering native population and they are not hunted much at all. They also have a small deer similar to a Roe deer which is abundant and aparently delicious but I have never eaten one. They have bloody massive pigs over there also.
    Argentina and Chile have good public land red deer hunting also.
