Another true storey from LWC, a few of my syndicate guys will be aware of this little gem & its further to the "sound Shot" post yesterday:
A vey good old mate of mine whom tought me to stalk & is very ill at the moment-whilst in his younger years was supervising a newbie for Hampshire Police (as we do), the guy was a typical know it & done it all type.
To say the least my buddy had his fill of the guy anyway & the bloke then said that in his own oppinion that he was now experianced enough to go on to his own ground un accompanied (even though he had never fired a shot at live quarry).
My buddy was then writing to licensing over the weekend to say that he was no longer going to supervise the bloke in question & that he had still not gained enough experiance to go into the field alone.
The guy over that weekend did go onto his own ground-stalked through a wood & find a big Roebuck in bright shiny summer coat together with tha most massive rack you have ever seen on top of his sweed!
He took his shot-killed the buck cleanly & then approached.
On finding the dead animal-he found it wearing a bright green coller with the name"TOGAN" on it & it was in fact a PEDIGRE GOAT
Safe to say that I understand he lost his ticket & got beat to hell by the farmers wife!
Beware the Bearded Roebuck!
