Right I have 2 clients over for 4 outings.
3 outings over and we have had luck....mal's man has shot 2 does, mine has had an opertunity on all outings but has not yet pulled the trigger. Just bad luck this morning nothing stood right and both evening stalks bad light beat us..seeing deer but not well enough to hit the heart.
Now tonight on the way back and the 2 guests were bantering about a score of 2 -0(my chap was getting wound up) my chap asked what the plan for morning was.
I told him I would take him to a special place which has a high number of deer and I've been asked to cull 7 does.
BUT they have a fox problem and we would have to shoot any foxes on sight.
He refused so I said well I will take my rifle also to kill any we see as it is part of my rent.
He still refused so I said fine we'll go somewhere else then where the foxes aren't common.
The damage was now done. His toys were out.....
He would stay in his room while I took his mate out.
Saying he paid to stalk deer not shoot foxes?
I can to a point understand this but I explained a single shot will not 90% of the time bother deer.
He was adamant.
He would rather miss the morning stalk on the slim chance he might be asked to shoot a fox???
This is the first time in probably 600 or so outings I have had an issue.
Anyway I'm booked up till mid Jan so can do without clients who sulk.
Needless to say hes staying at the pub in the morning and mal is having a lie in.
