I went for a walk this week to see if I could get a friend of mine his first Tahr, and also to get some meat for the freezer,
Hunting on public land, we walked in to the hut on Tuesday night - 4 1/2 hours from the car park and about 1800 vertical feet higher. About halfway into the walk I spotted a small mob of tahr crossing a scree slope a way up from the valley floor and got my mate into position for a shot, he dropped this nanny from 220 yards with my .243.
We took the meat and continued in to the hut. Next morning we were up and about not long after dawn, spotted various small groups of tahr feeding around the valley. We decided to leave them, and climbed higher to have a look for a bull... none were seen except this one hanging below a helicopter which was a bit of a bummer
mid afternoon we located a mob of 8 nannies feeding fairly low down in some tussocky scrub, got as close as we could, and set up for the shot, 548 yards, zero wind, the Sako .243 did the job
With a fair bit of meat we decided that would do us, and walked back out in an un-expected rainstorm, which was not particularly pleasant
Car park is out in the main valley in the distance
