out to day and i shot a young stag.
i had watched him chasing a hind yesterday and he returned to the same spot this morning looking for her.
i have always heard that they smell really bad during the rut.
imho he was not nearly as bad as i was expecting and if honest it was not that bad at all.
i did ask a fellow sd member what he thought of the smell when he came round to see him and he smelt strong urine but not that bad.
is this only because 1, he is a minor 2, its a bit early for full rut and the smells not fully developed.
so far i am not put off by that smell as i have smelt worse.
