With some late sunshine predicted I thought it would be worth a look where my trail cam has picked up a few fallow passing through.
There are two routes into my high seat but the recent high winds have covered both trails with a carpet of leaves and twigs.
What breeze there was put pay to one route leaving me Hobson's choice!
Setting the Z6 to x4 I worked through my cover of Oaks and Hornbeam, up a head there was a bit of movement so finding a good side rest off a branch I waited.
Keeping my head above the scope to catch any movement in front paid off as a doe stepped out from my right around 60 yards. No shot unless she carried on walking forward to the large gap in the trees...The round rocked her side wards then she ran into a thicket, know to get it back to the truck.
I text the land owner as she was keen to see one up close! While she was on her way I walked back to the truck secured the rifle then started the drag back...
The owner stayed long enough to take a picture, said you may come and shoot another then left...lol
A good weight at 85 lbs dressed, the usual marks on my scales for Muntjac show up well..
