7:00 am out of the door and on my way to my permission about 5 min drive
i have a friend who wanted to buy a roe deer carcass, he is a chef and has recently acquired a mincer. I'm told he is using it for he own personal consumption, experimenting burgers, sausages, bbq's etc.
i arrive at the place and within 10 minutes i spot 5 deer
1 little one
as i start to make my approach in the truck 2 does and the kid start to walk into a thick wood.
i am approximately 200 yards away (not confident at taking a shot that far)
crawl out of my truck and up into a position to take a shot.
crawling through thistles, nettles, long due covered grass up the side of the hedgerow.
i am now about 100 yards away.
bi-pod open.......then the buck decides to sit down :P
so unless i crawl further towards it there is no way of taking a chest shot.
starts to rain.
so a fine head shot was taken although the pressure of the bullet has somewhat made one of his eyes to bulge a bit , its a bit ugly and disconcerting when performing the gralloch to have it staring at me like that but was dead immediately.
