First bow kill of 2016
 
G'day guys,

Here in Australia the reds and fallow are just starting to finish their velvet growth and over the next month will be stripping.

There's a stag I've been trying to stick with the bow and this evening I did another hunt for him.

A few Roos hopped past at 20m, stopped for a scratch and continued on. Unfortunately they can only be shot with a rifle in aus strictly no bows. As dark began to close in and there was no sign of my cull stag this hare fed into 22m and with a nice double lung I punched his ticket and he was dead in his tracks.

Hopefully it's a sign of a good year to come

Nah mate, I'm going to order it this week, they said it'll take a month to get in though. Our rut is in April so as long as I have it set up by then I'll be happy.

Ordered him just now, I34 in Kuiu Verde with a V grip. $1659AUD for that and a two piece quiver but it'll be worth it.

That's a big hare. Cool kill for sure. Australia/New Zealand is one of my top hunting bucket list places to go to. One day for sure!!!! Keep on shooting mate

Cheers mate, this was a mature doe but the bucks get even bigger.

Both are beautiful places, personally I prefer NZ for the DIY hunter, but Australia has some great hunting and shooting as well.
