So some of you will have read my tale of my (unsucessful) first paid outing, and how I resolved to get my arse out more, and onto my own (free) land...
...well I finally did.
Installed highseat last Friday night and sat watching the sun go down.
Up at 5 on Saturday, in high seat by 5:30. At about 6:30 I saw 2 muntjac come out of some undergrowth about 25m away however no sooner had I spotted them and begun to slowly bring my rifle round than they got spooked and high tailed it.
What went wrong?
Did they smell me?
Was I too quick to move & did they see me?
Did they see a large, unfamiliar SILVER highseat leaning up against a tree?
I'm off out again at the crack of dawn tomorrow AM and have since camo'd up the highseat (see attached before & after shots)...
I thought I was very slow and careful - how slow and careful do you need to be not to get rumbled bearing in mind munties don't tend to hang about long?
