The Roe Buck season opened here on 2nd May.I was fortunate enough to shoot a boar and roe buck yesterday. He is quite big by Swiss standards, well his head is anyway but he weighed only 18kg. My mandate was to shoot any mature bucks as we have quite few this year. I used Barnes 80gr TTSX which dropped the animal immediately but his heart was pulverised. However, he let out a few barks then crawled into some thicket. I was pretty surpised as the shot was true. ^There was no real meat damage and the bullet expanded perfectly with an exit wound of just over an inch.
