Had an invite to have morning in a high seat on a ground not far from where i live, saw a single doe but that was all .
Just about to pack up when in the distance i heard a buck barking, so gave it another 20 mins and to my suprise he appeared about 150yds away..
There was some cover between us ,and only one clear gap where i could take him.
It was an edge of the seat job for the next 10 mins or so ,i had my fingers crossed in the hope he would present himself for a shot.
At last he was in the clear but a fair way for me, i would have felt more at ease with my varmint .243 but i had a rock steady aim with the .308
I squeezed the trigger thought the shot was good, but the buck ran ! luckily for me only 30 yds and dropped.
The entry point was fairly low and forward and had taken the shoulder out on exit , i can't belive he managed to run at all .
A great morning though and a nice result, DF
