Hi UK Stalkers,
I've posted here a few years ago, but thought I'd better introduce myself again.
I'm a South Island Red Deer and Chamois stalker living in Christchurch, NZ. I'm also a kind of amatuer historian on NZ Hunting, particularly around Red Deer genetics and how these relate to the Red Deer that started our herds in NZ. I've done a lot of reading on the Scottish deer herds and hope to stalk Scotland someday, just for the experience.
My pet hunting hate is fence shoots that masquerade as true fair chase wild hunts. Most of the huge Red Deer heads you see in photographs coming from NZ these days are special farmed 'trophy deer' that are no more wild than Miley Cyrus pretends to be.
Anyhow, that's me.
