i thought i would tell you a little story about what happened last friday evening , and for those who have been robbed of guzumpt out of a permission you will love this !
now just of late ive been a bit quiet on the stalking front , ive had about 750 acres of roe stalking that ive had for the last 5 yrs snitched from under my nose by the syndicate shoot , who offered the farmer an extra £2000 for the stalking rights too a couple of new members want to shoot the roe bucks , apparently they have seen a medal class buck or 2 ! .
farmers being farmers he took the gold and told me to remove my high seats, which i did and i was off on my merry way !
well on friday afternoon the syndicate shoot captain rocks up on my door step complaining of a nest of fox cubs , begging me to come and sort them out , because the syndicate snipers were unavilable .
i reluctantly agree tounge in cheek ,and get the rifle and go to the said spot of the den . well to my surprise the syndicate snipers were there eyeing up a VERY nice roe buck just over the boundary on a small 15 acre field of spring barley , so i had a look though my trusty lecia's and thought to my self , thats that barsteward buck ive been after for years !!!
so i got my rifle and sticks , straight passed the snipers and said back in 2 jiffs and to their amazment i walked slowly straight accross the wheat field , over the shallow ditch slipped a 270 round up the spout up on the sticks , the buck raised his head and WOLLOP straight in the neck one quite dead VERY NICE roe buck .
i unloaded my rifle and walked back from the easiest stalk ive ever had from a buck ive been after for 4 years , shaking like a leaf .
when i got back to my truck there was a lot of noise and ranting and raving and threats to call the law about me poaching , untill i pulled my ace card and showed them the farm map and permission letter of the farmer next door (it pays to have a mobile office in the truck at all times) !
i bid my fair well told the shoot captain in no ceartain words to stick his foxes where the sun didnt shine (and i wasnt polite about it either !), my last words were SORRY MUST DASH IVE GOT A MEDAL ROE BUCK TO GRALLOCH !
revenge is always better very very cold especially in front of an audience !
presently weighing 560 grammes after 5 days of drying im hoping for a bronze maybe silver !
