Again , this year I went on my own ... maybe I am just getting old m but for the first time I genuinely missed a mate to catch up with at the end of the day ... and whilst I hunted hard, I looked more than stalked ...
and a bunch of Judo's and blunts - I stumped my ass off ......Image
some of the "pig " country 'up top' .....
ImageA stag I chased all morning - here he is in the very early morning light - centre pic ....

Is there anything more fun than heading out after a coffee and full breakfast with a bow in hand ? Wild places and Longbows go hand in hand ...
some of these photo's turned out okay - with a guilty confession - I took my good camera with two lenses and they never got unpacked - took all of my pics on my phone ....
Image
my gear for the trip ... bring a small back quiver as I intended this year to do more stumping and shooting ! and its more fun with lots of arrows ... everything else was relegated to a bow quiver and Safarituff,,,,,

Imageeverything was frozen ...
and when you are tired of glassing - glass more ... and more ..
Imageafter a bunch of pig sign I watched a huge old boar [ a rarity in NZ] wander down out of the mountains to look for a lady friend ... was such a delight finally seeing him after 3 days of scouting ... got in nice and close too ...
And well , I may have missed him at stow throwing distance ... but we aren't talking about that ....
