Today I did my first chamois hunt and I am bloody knackered!!
We got to the high seat at about 6pm. Spied the first chamois about 30 mins after. He briefly popped out in the open, my guide said wait he will come out further, he turned around and vanished never to be seen again. An hour later we spy 3 more across the valley. Ranged them at 700 meters. Time to get mobile. We stalked in to the last known location only to find they had moved and there was no shot.
Back up the mountain we go. About 20 mins before last shooting lit the buggers only went and moved up the valley again. Off we went like a brace of mountain goats. We got in to position about 10mins before the light went totally. We could only see one by this point and he was happily grazing away from up. I sat behind the rifle till we could not see him anymore waiting for him to turn broadside but alas it was not to be.
Back up the mountain we went to the car. I am pretty happy we don't have that terrain in Hampshire Off to bed. I will update on how we get on tomorrow.
