I've just put up a new introductions thread - but for those of you who will miss it. I'm from New Zealand and will be living in England for the next year or two (overseas experience). Therefore, being new to this site, I figured the best way to get to know everyone was to share a few of my experiences.
I can hunt many species of deer here in New Zealand but by far my favourite species is Sambar. There size alone amazes me as I have shot numerous stags that would have been over 250 kilograms (around 500 lbs). However, for being such a large deer they are still incredibly cunning and at times, hard to locate. They live in incredibly tight bush (gorse/scrub) and primarily feed nocturnally.
Anyway - a few photos.
I hope you enjoy them - just a little bit bigger than a Roe Buck huh.
