Brooky’s famous words ‘it will be a long walk’ turned out to be true. To get to the Chamois 440m away we had to drop back down to the river, climb 800m of elevation, sidle along the tussocks and brave the Spaniards (for those unaware they are plants, and they are sharp). After a couple kilometres to travel 440m we reached him. A 8”+ chamois Buck. We quickly discussed our error regarding him squatting to urinate and wondered how often a decent buck chamois got to escape its pursuers just by taking a squat.
The @robert_herbert R&N blades #helium1 made short work of the little Chamois which, to our amazement, in the time it took us to reach him the meat had started to cook!
The pale meat on the sun exposed side was scorching hot to touch. We feared for its quality and quickly removed the shoulders, tenderloins, back straps and hind quarters. The meat was hung in a bush for as long as possible until it had cooled to the touch. We then bagged it as the blowflies had found us and we placed the meat bags under a shady ledge.
Needing a refuel we joined the meat bags in the shade, removed our boots and socks in the hope of drier boots, and had some lunch. We recalled how true Brooky’s words were regarding the walk and sat in awe of these awesome animals. #repost @precision_defence_industries #noflopbrim#sunhat#sheltahats#huntwithshelta#whenperformancematters#hunting#newzealand#outdoorlife#sunprotection
