I had a german guy out stalking Roe last week who was.. over-enthusiastic to say the least. I found 3 bucks in the morning, all of which he missed, 2 in the afternoon... which he also missed due to sheer excitement apparently?. so when we went out that evening after checking the zero of the rifle, I had a slight change of plan, when we came across a nice roe buck standing broad side on not more than 60 yards away I set my sticks up, aimed the rifle and basically held it for him, he squeezed the trigger... and NOTHING! he had missed yet again! in my frustration I took the rifle back, layed onto the beast and fired, knocking it down with a nice clean shot. Imediatley he grabbed me, hugged me and shook my hand, he was over the moon, even though I had shot it?
As I walked over to the deer I unloaded my rifle and put it down, ready to gralloch it, but I was then told by my client that he had just bought a new knife and wanted to try it out, be my guest I said. After he made a nice job of gralloching it I opened my roe sack only to be told that he'd also just bought a harness type carrier and would like to try that out too.... and ended up willingly carrying the buck that I had shot but he had gralloched back to the truck which was abut a mile away... you don't get that everyday!
