I've been busy at work for a while and not had much chance to get out despite seeing a lot of rutting activity for the past 10 days or so whilst working. It needed someone else to make me get out and Pete was generous enough to ask me to go out on his last night.
When I got there he told me where to go and what he wanted shooting-anything good or with potential in the middle was to be left and anything on the boundary was fair game as next door are shooting anything that moved, he said he'd rather I had it than someone else. He left me to stalk the ground on my own whilst he went to some other ground-not many people would let you do that.
After a stalk through a few fields I had a call near the boundary and this chap came straight to me from about 300m, I lost sight of him round a dogleg in the hedge and then he bounded across the field to around 170m where he stopped to the terror call and dropped on the spot. Thanks for a really enjoyable evening Pete, sorry about the photo quality but it was getting dark and the pics are off my phone, was a long drag back to the truck!
