    A big bodied even 8 pointer on the left and a young 10 on the right. There's another older 10 I'll try find the pic, nothing big in the area but even long tines at least.

    No great stags but a lesson learnt.... if you go to the trouble of lugging in a salt block make sure the camera is on the right angle! Bumped a stag this morning while picking up the camera and there were prints in around where the camera should have been pointing.
    Happy with the little cameras sensor range and photos though.

    Its an A30i. Got a few sets of eyes in the dark but would have been centre picture but in line with furtherst deer. Was an impulse buy as I would rather look at them in front of me but I am curious now to re set in a better position

    Takes awhile to figure out good placement! sometimes if it's directly inline with the trail and too low you only see parts of the deer. Put a block of wood underneath the top of the camera(high in the tree is good) and the deer will be more in the center of the pic. Be careful with branches and scrub movement, one time I had to delete 5,000 photos of the wind blowing!

    First pigs caught on camera up at the families new property up Mangonui. That boar looks tasty!
    They seem to have the same pattern over the last 2 weeks wondering through between 6.30-7.30am

    Well this weekend we got a little surprise. Beeman checked some of the camera's on his route and came back with a "New kid on the Block". During the velvet we had a stag run past the camera and left a blurred picture of a drop tyne on the top of the right antler, it wasn't a good picture but you could see the big blob of velvet on the tip.
    When we viewed the pictures we had some great footage of this same stag ( we think) but the stills did show the head that well. Beeman decided to pause the video at the better positions and take a picture with his phone camera hence the picture quality isn't quite as good as the original. The stag has 15 points that we can count and is the most points we have seen on a stag in this forest. Beeman found a couple of rut pads starting to be used not to far from the wallow and his camera, so let's hope we can get onto him when they start up roaring.Name:  15 point Stag 2018.JPG

    How come you are going to try shoot him if he's the most points you've seen? Is it a public forest so no point trying to propagate his genes ha?

    We hunt the roar and other times of the year for the chance of shooting a good stag or a deer for the freezer. As most people do the same thing and shoot a lot of bigger stags than this one I don't see a problem. In reality we may never see him but we do know he is there so it gets us out of bed for a chance at him and several other ones that are reasonable.
    If we left all the good ones for there genes not many would be shot, plenty of genes get passed on as we are constantly see good stags coming on. ( In this area and the rest of the country)
