453m (498yd) Australian Fallow buck

Went to one of our good fallow and sambar spots for a few days with my brother had a great time seeing 30 deer (mix of the species) and managed to find this guy. got to within 453m and made a clean heart shot which we got on film though the quality isn't great.
In the excitement of getting set up my phone fell out of my bum bag I was using for a butt rest and was lost and so my brother has all the pics. managed to get these couple off him. I'll post some better ones when I can.

For anyone who doesn't know fallow they come in a range of colours from white to red to menil to black. This was my first black buck and I've always wanted one in velvet so looking forward to the wall pedestal mount! Such a great deer to hunt.

Well done Jack.

Which side of the hill do you hunt?

Cheers mate,
I'm not sure you mean by that? but it was a Victorian High country fallow

The German Wirehaired pointer is my brothers. We're in the process of training him, he found a fallow doe that we shot and lost in thick blackberry scrub which we were very pleased about.
Ellie, my little GSP pup was on her first hunt here so just getting a feel for it. She loved it though and I've already noticed her air scenting a lot so I think she'll be great when she's older.

I meant what side of the great divide are you hunting? I am on the south side and hunt around Dargo.
