Hope everyone had a look out this morning i did and this is how it went.
Up a 4am and down to the wood by 5am it was still very dark apart from 3 pairs of blue lights coming down the private road towards me i thought i was seeing things but no the boys and girls in blue had a phone call about a van opening the electric gates and driving down the road that was funny as i have a ford mondeo?????
Anyway they where sound and of they went.
around 6am it started raining again so i gve it 10 mins then started walking the fields to the wood and the 1st thing i see is a fox with a rabbit around 100yrd and it was eating it , i was very tempted but no i am here for the roe.
Went to my 1st port of call which is a nice ride around 250 yards long sat for a while on a styl near a gate and nothing so i thought i would have a slow stalk down the ride and make my way to the high tower.
Got to the high tower got the seat sorted and waited as there is 2 rides from the tower 1 of around 300 yards and 1 of a 100 so i was there watching the pheasants and at the end of the ride i could see a roe so glassed and it was a buck but far to far for a shot so i watched it and it came to about 170-180 yards but i thought be patient . The bugger turned into the wood but that happens so i sat and had a smoke and then a doe came from the right hand side of the ride and was looking behind her so up with the rifle and ready and out came a young doe so false alarm.
I was watching the does for about 15 mins and they went in then i saw my buck it was around 100-110 yards it must of only gone in the wood and walked straight down towards me so i shot it and it dropped which i was pleased as i was trying the berger vld`s hunting for the 1st time on the roe so i went down and sorted it out and i was pleased it was not a very good head for here and was the 1st roe with the new 7mm.
i will post a pic of the head later.
