Up at sparrows for our planned Sunday hunt today.
Made our way up to glass and hunt on one of the many valleys up mt Dissapointment state forest before sun rise.
It was cold, wet, but the sambar were out!!!
Great laid out plan had us glassing a valley soon picking out a feeding and an about to bed large bodied doe on a opposite valley face...
The plan was for me to finally shoot the 300WM at a long range target after several months of range Pratice, bullet changes, and fine tuning the gear to get the optimum result for a hunt...and today was the day for it!!!
To say I am happy with the result is a understatement!!!!
The doe was ranged and shot at 305m with a perfect placement just behind the shoulder.
The 200g bullet lodged on the opposite side of its hock in which we managed to dig out and save... The spoils of the animal were taken for the table in a 2hr walk out from where it was shot.
Thanks to my ol mate nicko for the support and help on the vertical carry out🤛👍
One of the great days in your life when all just come together👌
Found the sign and seen 8 sambar deer for the weekend. Didn’t get one on the deck but came as close as possible, I came off a saddle and down the hill about 50m to see 2 stags rubbing trees, one at 40m and the other at 20 with no shot window on either, i crouched down and waited a few minutes till they hopefully moved into a slightly better position for me to be able to shoot, when the stag at 20m just stopped rubbing the tree and walked straight at me, at 5m I thought I was going to get stepped on. I tried to draw back slowly to try and get a shot away but it wasn’t to be, he spooked and ran. Good day in the bush and learnt a little more, I wish to have that moment again to change my timing on drawing my bow! Heart in mouth moment with a mature stag at 5m #hunter#hunting#huntingaustralia#sambarstag#stag#sambar#deer#bowhunter#bowhunting#psearchery#deerhunting#ozcutbroadheads#gametrails#heavytraffic
