Attachment 11375I would like to say a big thankyou
to a young guy by the name of Luke. He drove up to Leicester from Gilford today to take a nice red stag. It was a pleasure to be in his company for the day. He is only 25 but got his head screwed on. Took him onto the range 3 red deer targets 100,150,200 yrds and he was using a 300 win mag. Have to admit it was sweet and shot well. Made sure he could shoot and he could.
We had soup and sandwiches then up the hills. The deer were having none of it But after a couple of hours Luke took a shot at 245 yrds. It was a blinder, it was a big animal 130+ kg and 300 win mag flattened him. It is only resently that I have been taking people out to shoot these deer. As I have shot them all myself for the past 12 years it is nice to see someone else take one out and enjoy it as much as I do.
For a young guy Luke was not full of s**t nor did he claim to know it all. Just a decent young guy who enjoyed shooting deer. I could quite easily go stalking anywhere with him, good company and good fun, he is comming up at the end of January again to shoot again.
Thank You again Luke you are welcome any time. Photo in Red Deer gallery( Young Buck with a Red Stag)
