Forest

What do you think made that Tahr harder to cape than an elk? Was it harder or the same as a bighorn?

Just curious on your perspective

From: sitO
19-Mar-23
So it's a high fence kill/cull?

19-Mar-23
Nothing we have hunted is high fence. We can't afford that! Lol. My friend Mike Biemond Owns Real Kiwi hunting. Im here helping him. There is plenty of high fence places around but Mike is really in to free range hunts. RK yes like a big horn kinda. Thing had hair like growing out of its horns at the base. Horns almost touching at bases.
