Other notable head Karl Puklowski 13 point Wapiti 309 1/8 after a 30 point deduction for overspread.
Highest number of antlered entries ever at a club night which was great to see. Obviously the lock down last year had allowed numerous stags that critical extra years antler growth and ability to grow a few more points , helped also by the reduction in helicopter activity. A good spread of heads again this year. Although a noteable drop in chamois and tahr entries and only one pig. Clay and Brody Parkins did the junior hunters proud with Red, Fallow and Goat entries being entered by both of them.
