    Gidday Mohawk, Where you been buddy? I remember seeing Dundee post a picture of a steer's head a while back and then the same picture again recently. Send him a PM. If you get to close to he roar (I am going down for a week in 11 days time) then I have seen some guys using a small plastic coke bottle with the bottom cut out. Where are you off to?
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Perfect. The car doesn't need it while you are in the bush anyway. Can always put it back on when you get out

    Funny you should say that Gibo

    This was my old mans roaring horn.

    Not sure how old it is or even what vehicle it was made for.

    But I do know it's never been fitted to any vehicle and he used this with good success for as long as I can remember.

    Now It's mine, I used it last roar to call up three Red Stags in the Ruahine and will use it again this roar too.
