went out in the snow to see how the local stags are performing,,very good it was
snow was low and it made picking animals out very hard,,everything just white or dirty looking
got a lovely vid of a scrubber and hind n fawn,,amazing how many vocals he threw around
it cleared in the night and the snow froze and at daylight it blew from the south so packed up and trudged back to vehicle,,
after climbing over the ridge and nearly back in the valley floor i looked out into the large basin to spot a black cattle beast in amongst the whitness,,but hold on theres no cattle in here so a squiz thru the scope to show a nice bull tahr,,anything can happen out there in thar hills,,nice fella with good bases,,hope to see him later with his winter coat in full bloom

just came out of a catchment off the Wilberforce after a week,seen a few stags,one beauty that nearly came home with us but hes still up there being surrounded by his hinds was his smart move,lots of snow,shot a couple of deer and a couple of chamois for the sake of it.bloody cold and the snow was deep near us.
heard a few roars but seen more roars than hearing them as it was so windy....mother nature beat us up a bit but totally worth a look in there.
heading to another spot next week if weather settles a little!!!!

Good luck to other hunters in the next week or so too!! Wink Tongue

It was a interesting few days up there,seen quite a few animals up high on the hill,younger stags entertaining hinds whilst the mature stags sat 300ft above observing the action.

It was quite the weather bomb up the main divide,Funny,we bumped into 6-8 hunters trying to duplicate the "Duleys" trip up and over Browning to Arahura and back,but the snow arrived while they would have been still up head of valley tripping over each other. Grin
