This morning at 4:30 I went out stalking with my dad smithp18. We were on the search for Roe Bucks and knew where some were working for previous recons. The cover was high and spotting deer was very difficult . We were sat in a wood for 45 minutes knowing where there was a Buck but no luck, so we slowly moved down to the end of the wood creeping to the fence line. We heard two Bucks barking in a little strip across from the wood we were in then my dad climbed over the fence and I were half way and he whispered stop and I got down off the fence, he whispered theirs a buck there so I ducked down it was about 250 yards away, I slowly climbed over the fence, then I saw this buck in its red y brown coat, we slowly crawled our way towards big oak tree using the truck to hide us supplying us with cover to get closer, the wind was good so the buck wouldn't spot us. then my dad and I waited for the buck to come along the fence line, when it was at about about 80 yards broad side on my dad who had sent me up said take your time the shot is on and we knew it was going to jump over a fence to investigate what we think was another buck. I slowly squeezed the trigger we both saw the front legs kick and it ran about 30 yards then came to a sudden holt and did a drunken wobble for about 5 seconds then dropped. We approached to find it Lung/heart shot
Under guidance from my dad I did the field work, I have seen a few time the dvds on how to do this bu the in practice it is much harder
I completed the larder work also at home and the buck is now in the chiller beats going to school please don't tell anyone.
Jayb I would have rung you but it was 06:30 and the last time we woke you up you did not look to pleased.
Who my hair is off so I could see the deer this time, sorry no photos dad messed the camera up.
