    The scenery is one of the main reasons I hunt >>> Nice photos
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    Great stuff! Love seeing pictures of the Southern Alps, especially when they include someone getting their first Tahr.

    haha not uncommon to see mobs of 20+. they breed just like goats
    I once saw over 100 nannies(I counted to about 90 and gave up haha) in one mob on public land.
    finding the bulls is a different story haha

    Great pics. The land looks stunning. Mobs that size must lower the odds of whacking something surely?

    I feel for you mate, its a rough life. love that first pic, great creativity in that from the missus.

    And great to see she likes hunting, still debating if I can spend the rest of my life with an anti hunting missus myself haha can get frustrating
    I prefer my meat in its original packaging
