NZ Fallow.

Hi Guys thought I may share yesterdays success with you.

He anit huge(head wise)! It wasnt far! The weather was absoluly ****,rain and humidity was a bitch!!! to make it even better I tore the tendons in my shoulder doing the big heave on to my back with him (so Im screwed for next couple of weeks).

But sure beats sitting at work.

3 yr old fallow buck, 260 yrds downhill, Tikka 595 7-08 140 gr Nosler BTs.



A huge thanks to "Top Predator" who was with me to carry this out for me after my injury!


Regards 300WSMMAD

Re: NZ Fallow.

Nicely done, he looks in really good condition. He's a bit bigger than the one I shot a few weekends back.

You weren't tempted to use the 338 lapua?

Re: NZ Fallow.

Best hatched plans never work out! They were supposed to be in the pines 5 mins walk from the truck, damm it ,not out in the open, bottom of a valley amongst the raupo grass, didnt they get my email

So the 708 was the natural choice to take,but the Lapua is always the one I look at and pause for a brief moment, then come back to reality!

He is a little fatty, oh and the deers in great nik too King Country grass!!

Re: NZ Fallow.

Congrats, beautiful animal. I have hunted Fallow several times and taken a couple bucks over the past 10 years. I would love to be able to hunt them in an area where they are free range hunts. The ones I have hunted, while very challanging hunts were in large area high fence ranches.

Again, congrats!!!

Re: NZ Fallow.

Hey Fiftydriver, if your after free range fallow there is plenty in Australia and New Zealand. Fallow are mostly plentiful free range in Tasmania, much greater chance of succes there. I think in Tasmania though you just need to buy a tag down at the police station

Cheers,
