Yes they are larger and often can take a bit of stopping
Quite a thick Skin on them, 30-06 or .35 Whelen are popular calibres over the hounds
Vic in Australia , is the only state you can run hounds on them

Don't know if the dogs will let you sit in the front seat though
Taken in the early 90's , we hunted locally , just used to through the hounds in the car and go
We had a good hunt that day with a good stag being taken

Most likely a little too close, maybe 70 yards
Originally it was feeding across or parallel to me , then it turned and was feeding towards me
I wasn't far from the car so i walked away slowly and got back in the car
It didn't know i was there , i hoped
