The 5th of april had me fly camping on the side of a bush clad ridge that night had one stumble into camp bellowing .. exciting start  Grin boots on in the morning and back over the other side i went wandering roaring well until 10am one kept going so ventured the 700m down lots of contour lines alright had two goes approaching him steep as heck creek edge covered in ki ki Shocked gave up at 5:30 totally knackered back up the ridge i went thirsty, sweaty, Hangary (Hungry-Angry)  400m from the top  i found a dirt scrap just been used stopped gave a couple off mellow roars crack-snap-twig  100m up ahead sneaked 30 m then the beast broke loose pulled him to a stop with a moan stopped in the perfect place crack and the open sighted 303  shooting 180gn flattened him...........was bloody stoked once in a lifetime .Pretty awsome to find that it has gone 232 douglas Cheesy Grinhttps://youtu.be/tLuHj0z6394
