it was a last minute decision as i finished my tea on sat night,
when i looked at the time and thought if i hurry i will hav time for a quick look around , so armed with my brno 30-06, i took off up this hedgerow ,first deer to see was a roe doe, then further up the field another doe with a couple of last years young a few yards on from her was another doe a bit more obliging that the others
onward i went only to bump into another small group of does (pictures did not come out) but still no buck , onward i went, still only 400 yards into the stalk when a bunch of fallow appeared , never on this paticular piece of ground hav i shot a fallow and still haven't nice to see but still can't get camera to work properly then i saw it my first buck , he also saw me ran thiry yards and stopped on the skyline for a moment or too then turned tail and gone, light now starting to go headed back to the car
to my surprise in the very first field i walked up about 100 yards from the car was 2 does then a third appeared this was a bit bigger with a thicker body and neck , yes i though a buck gently nearing the hedge i positioned my sticks and placed the cross hairs on his neck slipped the safety catch and squeezed the trigger, big puff of hair and watched him drop with in seconds all hell broke loose with about 5 more roe does running in every direction wondering what happened ?
the answer was this
my first roe buck of the season
camera now back on track after a little fiddling about with the buttons
