Well as the day was cancelled I shot a fox this morning and stalked a 5 pointer only to leave it hopefully for my client tomorrow morning.
Tonight after doing a dsc2 stalk (on paper from one shot earlier this week) i was ready to get out again.
I had a deer carcass to deliver to one of my permissions to the farmer for 1 of his friends.
We had put up a seat there last month so I would go sit in it for a fox or something (I had decided to shoot any buck which appeared tonight or I may never get 1).
I was up it for about 7.30 and Breeze sat still below me.
The 6.5 was loaded with the 156gr rn's I use in the summer for close range bucks.
After about 20 mins there was movement ahead a buck was chasing a yearling doe all over they eventually ran towards me stopping about 80m's away to catch their breath.
Having already lit the reticule I centred the dot at the back of the bucks neck half way up, and squeezed the trigger.
He fell instantly.
He was a beauty.
The neck wound from the slow RN.
So at long last I have opened my account, not quite the pricket I was after but very nice.
