A while back we had Jon (Rick o shea) and his mate Clive up onthe Muntjac and last weekend we had a trip back to shoot some Sommerset Roe.
We had limited time so we popped down Saturday night/Sunday morning.
We met the guys and had some bacon sarnies cooked to perfection by Jons mum then we were off stalking.
Andy and Clive headed off to one patch of ground and Jon and I went the another.
We stalked a young plantation which the cover was a bit to high to give us much chance but Jon was keen to try and get me a big buck he had seen there unfortuneatley the buck and a smaller friend spotted us before we spotted them.
We continued our stalk into a hay meadow where we spotted a young spiker and after quite along stand off he presented a shot which I took off the sticks the 95 grain ballistic tip from my .243 Blaser dropping him where he was stood.
We then stalked around a couple of big fields in a big circle before heading back to where we started when Jon spotted a buck about 100 yards away from where I shot the first this one a six pointer. We were up a bank above the buck and the low cover allowed me to crawl around the corner and take a shot off the bipod. Again the .243 dropped the buck where he stood.
We headed off to another area to look for another but the light beat us.
We headed home and met up with live and Andy they had seen a huge buck but lost the light before they got a shot
Again Jons mum treated us to some great food and I drunk too much wine just for a change
Sunday morning came very quick and Jon and I stalked a beutiful estate and saw a few deer including a young buck but failed to get a shot, the highlight of the morning for me was watching two roe twins suckling in the morning sun in a young plantation.
Andy had a bit more luck Sunday morning but I will let him tell his side.
Thanks again Jon and Clive and a big thanks to Jons mum for making us so welcome and feeding us so well.
