I was lucky enough to be invited up to waynes this weekend for a couple
of days stalking that would end with a cull night with members from the site
that wayne had invited jon 243 varmint i had allready met the rest it was a
pleasure to meet you all .
I arrived sunday afternoon for a warm welcome from wayne and chris
and we had a good old natter and a barbie which was gratefully recieved
that evening wayne decided to stalk some muntjac ground where wayne had
spotted a wily old buck .
we made our way to the ground on a glorious sunny evening as we neared the
highseat MAX waynes topclass gsp was winding as if to show something was about
we reached the seat and made ourselves comfortable on the wait for a the buck
we waited patiently for about 90 minutes hardly moving and making no sound but for the
odd whisper with gloves and face masks to better our chances .
it was a ride we were covering about ten metres wide so if he did show i would have
to be sharp with no noise to alarm my quarry .
sure enough about 8 .15 the buck appeared at 80 yds on the ride i positioned the rifle
for the shot but the buck was still moving the cross hairs were on him but i knew the
ninja would try and stop him with a call this he did and the buck paused just as he was
about to disappear into cover . as he stopped i squeezed off i cursed as i said to wayne
id pulled the shot he said no the bucks down . as we approached i was relived to see
the buck lying there dead with a perfect mid shot just behind the shoulder .
back to waynes for a quick beer then off to the b=b to bed as we had an early start
the next morning .
sunday morning up at 3 .30 at waynes for 4 .15 as we travelled to more of waynes
ground for first light to try for fallow and cull roe bucks .
we entered the first field into the wind and down to the top of a wood where a group of
fallow were spotted earlier in the week plan was to catch them out in the field feeding
to try for a shot .
As we were stalking along the top of the wood i spotted a large dog fox sat up looking
at us in the next field at 350 yards too far off the sticks even for me
we carried on and as we approached a gate we were alerted as three roe were coming
straight at us they spotted us and started to go right handed one young six pointer
a cull buck and a doe wayne up he sticks readying for a shot when a fallow pricket
appeared from nowhere right in the middle of them he had been led behind a wall and
was alerted as the roe ran past him waynes said to take the pricket which i did the roe
ran away from us out into a very large field .
wayne gralloched the pricket as i had left my knife in his truck he said yeah i have met
your type before
as wayne was finishing up i spotted the roe were making their way back towards us to
get back to the wood we grabbed the sticks and attempted for the cull animal he made
his way towards us unsteady knowing something was up he would not go broadside which made me a bit twitchy he kept coming still not right when he did i pulled the shot
back to far but the buck made five yards and collapsed he then sat up so we got a better angle and i finished him with a shot to head off the sticks i said to wayne if id
only done that with the first shot .
all was well as the buck was stone dead with a centered head shot .
that completed a weekend Mc Nab with three different species
we had a drive around and saw some lovely young bucks then returned to wayes for
brekkie and then hunting videoes from around the world .
that afternoon the stalking directory boys turned up where wayne and chris kindly put on a barbie where we had a good chat before we made off for the cull evening
I am sure the guys involved will add there own posts .
i was poisitioned by a pheasant pen in a highseat where a cold wind delevoped so a no
show for me . I had allready had a fantastic weekend in great company .
thanks very much wayne for a truly memorable weekend you do so much for like minded
stalkers your a credit to the site and to stalking .
myself and jake look forward to seeing you and andy back down here .
regards pete .
