Ruahine Roar Trip

Evening everyone. Hereís the video from my latest hunting mission into the ruahine range for the roar. Got some cool up close roar action on film which I am stoked about! We were lucky to walk out a day early given this stormy weather that has rolled in! Hopefully you enjoy. Cheers.

Might be just silly me but I am missing the point of shooting young stag just for fun?! Could have been someone's meat animal in couple months or nice trophy in couple years... Lips Sealed

Thanks for that mate, some good commentary there. I didn't even need to watch I could picture everything from the commentary. Top effort on the hunt and the vid.

+1
The commentary really fills in the story of the hunt and consequently you enjoy the action more.
Well done on the trip and the video Cool

Yea mate Iím no expert but they definitely werenít real young being nicely sized animals. Hard case alright, must be some funny genetics floating through there? Thanks for all the replies guys 👍🏻

They werenít young stags nor was the meat wasted so I donít quite understand where you are coming from sorry. They are bad heads through poor genetics and would never ever turn into a trophy. You will have noticed on the video we carried the meat out so shoot them now and carry the meat out or wait a few months to shoot them and carry the meat out? Same thing isnít it? Cheers.
