    Bet that snow helps with spotting those Chamois.
    Nice picture.

    Mr Brickburn,

    Your comment is correct more for mid-winter,and your are right for the moment because we have had a lot of late snow right into our spring.

    But normally, spotting a chamois at this time of the year is very difficult because the landscape is more black than white.

    I think that this is a good example of what you are talking about....easy to spot chamois.

    Exactly.
    If you can keep from sliding to the bottom it looks like a great opportunity.

    35 bore, Thanks for that.

    Seems like a few guys on this forum are pretty experienced hunters...you hunters have been on trips all around the world.

    I'm assuming from your name that you use one of those big gats.
    The thought of a 35 bore makes me legs tremble unless of course you're using something to reduce the recoil

    We don't really need to go above a standard .300 over here. Even the elks are really a thin skinned animal.
    Probably the toughest number is a sambar stag.

    This is what the mountains look like at the moment.

    Fair comment and strictly speaking you're correct.

    I was once given the job of cleaning up some wild cattle in the forests around Ajax swamp in the Catlands when I was working for the NZ Forest Service.

    A truly wild mob and little known about.

    We did em with .308 but I admit I bolted for the trees after firing. Actually the cows with their young were more dangerous.

    I've got skinny legs...I can hardly carry the backsteaks these days.

    That's why I try and hunt with the young and the restless.
