At over 70 years of age I guess that qualifies Reg as a LEGEND in Sambar hunting circles. With over 40 years in the Victorian High Country, and after suffering a stroke, Reg is still, to this day, pursuing what is arguably the greatest challenge of Australian Hunting, Sambar Deer.

The thoughts and passion Reg shares are an example to all hunters and conservationists around the world. Check his work out here.
