    My youngest brother (From the old man's second marriage) recently took his first stag hunting solo. The old man has been busy with work and younger siblings last few years so I've been putting a lot of time into teaching my youngest brother what I know in the art of hunting.

    Very proud to see him making his own way now with this 12 point stag. Only around 4-5 years from teeth wear but a great effort. Free range self guided hunting at its best.

    I've got some schnitzel from this guy to cook in the next day or two. Been great eating so far.

    That's a hell of a stag, think he is ruined if that is his first one. Congratulations to the hunter and coach!
