    Film #50! This time, a friend and I went in search of a good Winter Bull Tahr skin and head, and managed to secure one with a 485 metre shot! Enjoy!

    Awesome video!! Looks like you earned that one. Congrats on the success of a beautiful animal. One thing...........you drive on the wrong side of the road ;)

    Great video. I have been fortunate to visit NZ’s South Island and it is a beautiful country. Look forward to going back for some hunting.

    Congrats on a wonderful Bull Tahr and superb job on the video. You did a great job of giving us an idea of what a hunt is like there from start to finish and did a good job of showing the work and patience involved.

    A big Bull Tahr like that would be an absolutely once in a lifetime dream animal for me. If I can figure out how to get it done I'd love to make a trip down there one day for Tahr and Red Stag.

    I hate to admit though but I'm not sure I'm man enough to pull it off even if I got there anymore but if I were to die of a heart attack in the trying I'd go to my grave smiling.

    Thanks for sharing it with us.

    My thought exactly, the only problem is that the steering wheel is on the wrong side!
