Thread: 4 days across the south UK

  1. #1

    4 days across the south UK

    Both Robin and myself got back from 4 days stalking on two major areas I have in the south. For those that do not know Robin, you will find him a kind patient man and a good stalker, it was a pleasure to have him along.

    Weather was reasonable and first stop was Dorset on a lease I have for Jap Sika. We came away with 3 deer, 2 hinds and 1 spiker stag. Next stop was West Sussex and a large area I have just taken access to, 2,500 acres and in two outings we took 3 Roe doe's and 2 Fallow doe's.

    Wet, tired and got back Saturday after leaving on Tuesday. It has taken me the best part of half a day to clean the truck, quad and trailer of mud.

    Cheers Robin, hope you got back home OK.

    Ayup Malcom, i did hear on the grapevine that you and Robin had done pretty good towards the back end of the week, mind you, you did ring me to tell me that you had got 3 hinds at the start of the week, remember, it was when i was at work feeling crap as it was .

    Well done to you both

    Hi Malc
    Sounds like you had more success than I did this weekend.
    We were out on the Boar Friday night (blank), Roe on Saturday night (blank) and Munties on Sunday morning (blank) but that's stalking

    Four days across the south.

    Hi lads and lassies,
    Thank you Malcolm for the kind words, it was a pleasure stalking with you again, as those who know you will tell, you always put your guests first and last week was no exception.Hopefully I will be able to return the compliment when you are free.
    I will try and fill in some of the bits malc missed out. The ground had been subjected to a drag hunt a few days before our arrival, as the owner is Master of the hounds, to say the animals were skittish is an understatement, Sika are very wary at the best of times, the slightest noise or whiff of us and they were off,one of the fields is the best part of half a mile long with a gorse hedge down one side, the deer like to hang along the edges, if they heard or smelt you they would appear at the gallop run down the middle of the field and not stop until they were at the far end the best part of half a mile away.
    But they had not reckoned with Malc and his 30.06, carefully peering round a gate post we spied a small herd watching some horses walking up to our gate, a spiker stood broadside on at 265 yds having a pee,
    I said to malc its now or never he is going to be still for a few more seconds and to go for the shot.Watching through the bins i heard the shot and watched, the deer dropped on the spot, dead as a doornail.
    Probably one of the best shots i have seen in 40 years stalking.
    Through much trial and plenty of error we shot a few more animals in Dorset. One evening driving back on the quad i glanced to the side and through the darkness saw a small herd of animals running along side us ,stopping just before we reached the truck,I lifted the tail gate and picked out the spotlight and gave a sweep across the field, I said Malcolm have you seen this ? 8 hinds and an 8 point stag 50 yds away looking straight at us, a goldmedal head if ever we saw one

    Hi Robin,

    It all reads so much more neatly than when you hear about it on the phone
