Re: Organised hunt of NZ chapter of LRH

well fellas i managed to get out for a tahr hunt over the last 5 days. went up the godley. not too many animals seen but i did manage to get 2 11.5 inch bulls with the 308. one at 200m and the other at 125m. my mate got his first tahr. a 9.5 inch bull. we shot two animals that were bedded down together at the same time and they both just dropped. was great. and got it on video (though think my bro managed to delete it tho, gutted.)
had the chance to have a shoot on a tahr that was the biggest animal i have ever seen. was at 330m and i didnt take it. wanted to get closer to make sure i didnt mess up the shot.
so regretful, i really should have taken the shot since i know that im capable of that type of shot. and in perfect conditions too..grrrrrr. ended up doing some insane mountaineering that made sumit rocks of cook feel like a cake walk.
now im going to have to do some serious practice so im comfitable to 500m and then i wont pass up on such an amazing animal again. anyway have fun on the trip. gutted i cant come along and meet some of you.
cheers

Well done! Much snow around at the moment? Seems like it is only me going at the moment.

Hey Stu
I will be down there the week after now, am timing a hunt with the pickup of my boat the following weekend.
Might pick your brains after your hunt to see what height the Tahr are at. I will only have two days for Tahr so not stacks of time.

Went down to Mt Cook with a friend. No tahr in the first valley we went into on the Saturday. Sunday we glassed the hills beside the Tasman Valley Rd. Found 4 bulls. Climbed up to one but climbed too high and he winded me.
On the way back down the other three had fed further round into an area I might be able to retrieve one. Shot a bull at 334 yards, unfortunatley it fell into an area I could not retrieve it from.

Great weather though.

Stu.
