So I shot this in Hungary last month. There is a bit of a story behind it but to keep it short, I fell asleep up the high seat due to the previous evenings shoot followed by plenty of drinks. Anyway, I was woken up by this chap fighting with another some 150 yards to my right. By the time I had poked the rifle out the window of the high seat (European shed type) the other stag had given up and legged it from this fellow, and out of sight.
It didn't take long for the safety to come off and the shot to be taken with my .308 but it all happened too quickly, I would have liked to have watched the pair rut for a while first as this is only the second stag I've ever shot in my life. However I can't grizzle as I am very lucky to have had such an opportunity.
