Thread: Medal class Sika stag comes to the call

    Medal class Sika stag comes to the call

    Hi All,

    Was out yesterday morning for a pricket, and decided to move into a highseat overlooking an area of fir plantation and birch scrub with lots of bracken and tree guards. I hadnt been in the highseat more than 10 minutes when I spotted a movement under a clump of birch trees off to my right. A quick check through the binos showed up a black body trotting away from me, so I reached for the call and blasted out a couple of screams.The calls had an immediate effect and the animal changed course and disappeared off to its left behind some fir trees. A few minutes passed and then I spotted a big stag moving to my left behind some more fir trees. Realising the animal was way too big for me to shoot (I was only after youngsters) I grabbed the camera in my chest pocket and snapped off a few shots as the stag came on towards the high seat. In the end it emerged into the clearing immediately infront of the seat at about 40 yds and would have been a simple shot had it been on the menu

    First picture in the series is a glimpse of the stag slowly approaching behind birch trees
