Out this morning (sod the time change ) but not much about in the cold wind, so after 90 mins decide to head back to the car. Give myself one last chance, so stand with my back to a tree at the edge of the field with the rifle up on the sticks, close by a footpath, and with a nice view down the side of the wood. After 10 minutes a muntjac doe appears, 100 or so yards away, coming out of the wood and heading across the field. Look down the scope and wait for it to stop.
Just then, hear a 'squelch' from behind me. Eyes swivel left and see two labs, one chocolate and one yellow, thankfully on leads and with a walker behind them. They pass to my left, less than 10 yards away, then stop level with me at the edge of the field and look at the muntjac which decides to hightail it out of here.
Neither walker nor dogs ever realised I was there, so +1 to the camo manufacturers, but wonder what the result would have been if they had arrived 5 seconds later.
