Cowboy Red Stag

This past Saturday, August 19, I was invited to a ranch just south of Austin, Texas to hunt Red Stag. You probably know that this is a European version of our Elk in the USA.

Long story short, I was given a free tag to take a beautiful 7x7 Red Stag. The owner of the property said the animal weighed nearly 700 pounds. It was nurished with high protein feeds as well as food plots and grass. It was an incredible experience.

I shot the Stag with a pre 64 Winchester Model 70 in 30-06. I used a 150 grain Remington Core-Lokt. The bullet went completely through the Stag and it ran about 25 yards before expiring. The shot was made at about 50-60 yards.

This was the animal of my dreams....I thought when I hunted in New Zealand, but I got mine in Texas.

"The stars are big, they're big and bright, deep in the heart of Texas!"
