Dry Pre-season

March 20, 2014

I have been a little bit sticky with getting out in the bush of late, as a work accident on christmas eve left me in hospital with a severed achilles tendon. But while i was on the slow mend i managed to sneak out a couple of times in the last few weeks.

I have been very keen to test out the new Hunters Element Veil range. The forecast for the past few hunts have been hot and dry my last hunt consisting of a weekends hunting with the temperature well over 40 degree’s celcius  this had most animals walking off to bed an hour after sunrise. Once there, finding the animals was easy as paddocks with water and plenty of shady tree’s was where the deer were. Pictures and footage were another story with mirages from the heat ruining most shots. One thing i noticed in the heat with the new veil camo was  how well the darker green pattern handles the heat. i found it no different to my real tree prime summer top which as we know is brilliant in the hot weather. With most of my hunting range being in serious drought for the past 10 months its been a godsend to finally get some decent rain hit the mountains. So i set off again last weekend to have a hunt on my red deer block . heading in I was met with cooler  wet conditions and having a good look around glassing and checking my game cameras it showed very little sign of animals. Though I was somewhat dis heartened to find no big stags showing up it showed the effects of lack of feed from no rain. I set off in the rain in search of decent marks closer to the crops. I began finding good marks in a stock free paddock. I was stoked to see some deer sign. I know its only early days but with the roar only a couple of weeks away I’m hoping some mature stags will move in. I also scored a few boars to top off the hunt. Safe to say I will be back out there next weekend so stay tuned. Cheers Beau
