Ira Z Helm Jr

My first trip to New Zealand, spotted the bull at the top of a mountain, watched him fight and push two other big stags off of the mountain and then we put the stalk on him. Climbed about 3 quarters of the mountain, took a 268 yard shot across two gullies while shooting off of the shoulder of my buddy. One shot dropped him dead in his tracks!
