The Sambar Thread!

A good Sambar stag, probably the greatest trophy to be taken in Australia and taken free range in the wild under free chase one of the world's great trophies.

Ladies and Gentlemen, post some of your sambar pics here please.

Big old "gone back" stag caught out of heavy cover in fringe farmland.You can see that certain "toughness" evidenced here.
Oic taken through evening rising mist.

The effectiveness of wearing cam`s shown here,in my own mind a real asset for hunting/photographing sambar.

A knobby caught as he is about to bolt.

Y'know, it always amazes me that rub trees are only ever photographed with rifles leaning against them.

It amazes me that a bloke go`s through the effort of loading pics for others and they dont actually notice that there were some reasonable sambar pics amongst the " rub trees are only ever photographed with rifles leaning against them."

Well try this


and this



And just to annoy you even more is that there is not only a rifle at this rub but a bloke too.




Now show your own hand cobber!

First class. I respect the skill shown in taking live pics of sambar as I have tried and failed. It is more difficult than shooting one IMO.

Thanks for demonstrating your skill.

Great photos and dedication to the species.

Amazing to see the red and sambar together, how much overlap do the two species have in Vic NSW?

Regards,

MOG
