Taken with David Musgrave from South Pacific Hunters, a truly free range stag and one hell of a hunt. I will be Joining David next year for some fun in the top end of Australia.

Gryphon, yes, it can be difficult country, the bush can be thick and wet and the open tops rugged. Real wilderness, and the weather changes every other hour. The kind of place where if you dont take a locater beacon people look at you funny nowadays.
The 15 pointer in the first photograph I had been stalking for the last four years. I was well pleased with that.

Ben, I have been through a few. The BLR is a .308 and that stag was shot with a fogged useless scope at 10 yards and the rifle had a broken extracter...The ZG47 I dont own anymore, but had a wonderful piece of walnut on it and shot very well. The barrel had been cut down too short for me though so I sold it. Sigh...I should have kept it really.
Currently I am running a Harrington and Richardson made Mauser actioned 7x57 from 1984 with a great figured walnut stock. I have yet to hunt with it as I just got it the other week, plan to be out with it next month...I rate the 7x57 very highly. And for close bush hunting, round nose bullets in this caliber are devastating.

WET? Mate said they had 400 mm of rain in the ten days he was there recently.

I had DBB`s books out last night looking at the old fellas that pioneered that country,remarkable men too.
Lots of modern hunters dont care for it and want their Waps out of a pen...BIG difference ,so good onya whether the stag is a red or a Wap coming out of there is a super trophy.

Well done, also just had 2 friends come back who said the weather was extremely wet and the country was unforgiving, congratulations on a nice stag.

G'day John, when I was at Wanilla (Eyre Peninsula) for Christmas, my inlaws pointed to some hills in the distance and said there were rumours of escapee reds in there. That is a magnificent stag.

Ben

Yes, if you follow the link, these reds were deer farm escapees from quite a few years back, whom had drifted into fallow country, and the landowners wanted them culled out.

I could have shot a lovely 6-pointer 2 or 3 years earlier (?) whom just stared at us. Until of course I got the camera out. The club observer didn't know if we were allowed to shoot the reds, but meeting the owner later, absolutely. Too late.

This stag was not standing around. He had been lying up in some thick bushes, and took off up the opposing hill as soon as he saw us approaching. I shot him up the arse, the only shot I could take, and again once or twice in the chest as he turned from the first shot.

A friend gave me year's ago the skull cap of a spiker to examine which they had shot spotlighting. Should have been a fallow, but it was definitely a red too. That's from another area again.

Every bit of him was utilised.
