Some awesome trophies in there as well as some spectacular country. Those lilly white legs look a bit cold crossing the stream. Sweet as.

I hate monkey scrub and goblin bush.

Get off the chair away from the desk and get out in the bush and enjoy life.

Well done Gentlemen. Congratulations on your successful hunt. Some nice trophies there, and yes, the size does not make the trophy, the hunt does.

Tough going by the looks of that Mick!
Would have been a good hunt & fantastic memories for you both.
Not wrong about that water, straight off the mountains...have lumps under my ears just thinking about it!

Gold! South Westland is as close as one comes to huntingheaven on earth.

The bush-bashing on the way from the hut and landing pad to the spot where you took the trophy prictures? A bit curious wether you flew or walked in, and if pics are from different locations as I know the area a bit :-)

We flew in and bush bashed for a spike camp, up in the high stuff. Did five days with only one bad weather wise. Out for a day then in to another location for the chamois. Three days cut short by West coast weather. Yeah a great location, where you have to do the hard yards to get a trophy. Cheers Mick

Don't Tryolean Chamois hunters traditionally wear a ear ring through one ear?

264 you need a ear ring now.
