After five trips to Scotland and five blanks, two on the new ground, it was sixth time lucky. I went up for two days last week and did not see a buck until the last evening, this unfortunate fellow:
He was blind in one eye, (the one facing away from me!) and has seven good points. He was out on open sheep walk with a single kid, no sign of mum, and dropped on the spot to an 80 yard engine room shot.
Saw plenty of does this time, all with young, one had triplets. Hopefully a few of the kids I saw were fathered by this chap
