We sat in a couple of seats yesterday from about 3:45 or so, but by 5:15 I was starting to get a bit cold.
Then suddenly, on the edge of the wood ... right where I'd just glassed and seen nothing ... a group of 5 fallow materialized - just like that - and I warmed right up again :-)
No rush, they were looking straight at me but that seat is all camo and netting - and my head looks like a leafy basketball - so I eventually got the gun up and shot a prickett.
Good heart shot, but the b$gger still ran 100+yds back into the wood. I had to stop dragging every few yards to clear the leaf litter that was building up ahead of him and I did once back into a tree (I drag backwards with my German jaw hook and strap), but I finally got it over the ditch and had it gralloched by the time The Chief turned up on the quad.
A good bit of cardio exercise !!
More soon I hope ... they seem to be coming out now a bit more than they were.
