SUMMER TAHR WITH BOW & RIFLE

Early in the New Year I had two keen hunters from across the ditch join me for a 10 day Tahr, Chamois and Goat bow hunt. Brayden and Beau had never hunted Tahr but liked the idea of a real free range public land wilderness type hunt where we’d rough it and try our luck.

I brought the rifle along as well mainly as a back up incase we saw a nice bull that the lads might want to take home with them. The weather was a mixed bag really and we ended up spending 4 nights on the West Coast and the rest on the East trying to chase the good weather and animals. Finally spending a day in Central Otago chasing billy goats around with the bows.

Overall we had a great trip seeing over 100+ tahr, a few chamois and deer resulting in the lads both shooting there first tahr with bow and rifle. We covered some serious miles both on foot and in the ute, Brayden ended up taking a very nice 13″ public land bull with the rifle on last light of our last night after we hunted him for 4+ hours with the bow but couldn’t get closer than 80 yards due to running out of cover.

I managed to film the hunt and get some great footage which ill get round to editing at some point in the meant time here’s a few photos from our trip..

Cheers Brayden & Beau top lads look forward to hunting again with you in the future.
