Big Winners at Aria Roar Competition

Birdtalk Magazine June & July 2024

A FANTASTIC evening was held recently for the Aria Cosmopolitan Club’s inaugural Roar Competition.

A number of ‘beauty heads’ were brought in, with two that took the cake. Mike Cox came away with the biggest Red. Ben Draper took second place, and Sam Brooks third. Ben Draper and daughter Lily received the prize for biggest Fallow, with Ross and Roy Simpson second and third respectively.

Big ups to all our hunters who entered and participated in our local hunt that we will run bi-annually, in between our Aria Hunt.

Special thanks to Mark and Keith Walker from Big Game Artistry for coming out and judging the heads.

Thank you to Lynne Aldridge and Dave and Lyn Barnsdall for providing spot prizes.

Each head brought in gave hunters an extra entry into the draw, and the lucky Mike Cox received that prize also.

A big thank you to Oliver Barnsdall for bringing his passion for the locals and organising this
