uploading the photos now be a while.
great time was had and everyone scored kills.
we saw lots of things including the temp go to below minus 20c one night and none of us could sit later then midnight, Everything froze up scopes, muzzles and cartridges in magazines and breath on anything it touched including ear flaps of hats. Even the snow on our boots froze our boots into the shape we were sat in and the trouser bottoms froze to our boots which made moving very hard when it came to trekking out for our lifts.
bag was 7 fallow deer (no medals but a gold was seen on leaving a box and no shot was taken) 1 missed running.
2 wild boar
other animals seen were Moose (non shootable as what we could shoot was strict and fines were heavy) eagles, pine martin, roe,
ravens and waxwings.
Right here goes, don't have all the kills as some were shot a night under the moon and were skinned and lardered immediatly to stop them freezing with their skins on.
the boys who shot them may post or send me them when they recover.
the first night in the lodge, dark when we got there.
the danes set off hunting in the morning got everywhere (nearly) with just chains on a 2 wheel drive.
