I was out at one of my permissions this evening sat up in a high seat when this buck presented itself. It was a clean shot at around 100 yards and the beast is now in the chiller for a few days before being butchered. I intend to give the meat to the landowner as he is very generous and although not a shooter, is fascinated by the idea of taking food from his own land. He came out to see the deer where it fell and was very pleased.
If you look closely you can see the animal is half way to having its summer coat and a bit patchy!
