    In that next to last shot, must have been shot with a .17-.50 BMG at really close range. Blew the hide right off the skull! :tooth:

    They are nice mounts. Where were these pics taken? And don't say "in front of the mounts" or I'll fly over there to kick you. :D

    And I didn't know you guys had whitetail over there.

    In front of the mounts..................Send me your flight details!


    We had the TAKH ( Take A Kid Hunting) day in the forest on saturday and these are some of the heads that our committee members bought along to add 'atmosphere' to the hall.

    And yes, we do have Whitetail over here. There is a herd on Stewart island that is available for hunting........

    Dont forget to bring the wife and kids over with you. They can keep each other amused whil you and I do 'blokey' things like hunting drinking chasing wimmen etc..........

    Chamois, actually.

    The second picture is a chamois,its coat is a fawn colour in summer and is dark grey to black with bright yellow on the side of the face and throat in the winter months.In 1907 eight chamois were liberated in the Hooker valley ,South Island.Since then they have spread along the southern alps.They were originaly form Austria.There is no hunting limit on the numbers you can shoot and can be hunted any time of the year.Most hunters shoot for a trophy,then one for camp meat.Our Dept of Conservation class them as a pest to be shot on site!

    Oh, and besides talking funny, he also has trouble with spelling sometimes. He likes to add u's and e's to words that don't normally have them :tooth:
    He fits in the passenger's seat of my pick-up nicely though, and is a hoot to go riding through the hills of south central Tenn with :up:

    Isn't he a sailor, or used to be one? He keeps talking about port.

    I know you would..................and I have no doubt that you would enjoy the terrain where they live as shown here http://forums.gunsandammo.com/showthread.php?8458-Cool-scenery-and-video-of-NZ-for-you-to-enjoy

    I am sure that if any of you made the 'jump' across the 'ditch' Bloodhound and I could arrange a hunt.....

    They all look great, btw. I should ask how long it would take someone to amass that collection of mounts if they lived over there?

    If you hunted during the roar and knew people you could probably do it in a couple or 3 weeks if you worked at it full time..........Better allow a month Luis so you can stop, drink some coffee, do some shopping, go fishing for Marlin......
