well after 4 attempts too get my 1st deer with no sucess, i called upon the services of john at yorkshire roe stalking,
we got too the ground quite late as we had to change venue's due to fog, as we got going we soon came across a young buck and a doe which were the other side of a felled area. we stalked round in a big u shape where we came to a large buck and doe in a field to our right and the young buck in the felled area too our left. we had a big bush/tree between us and them as we came round the otherside of the bush/tree we had lost sight of the young buck,with no cover between us and them we moved in very slowley looking out for the young buck.
the doe moved from the field too the felled area and we got to 145m but dint dare go any closer with no cover. we waited for the doe too come back out which she did after the big buck walked across and fetched her back out towards the field. i was in the prone postion and john said fire when your happy, so after afew deep breaths i pulled the trigger on my 1st deer and laid waiting for them famous words of good shot reload but heard GUT shot reload and fire again!!! which i did and the doe was out off her misery. i was more botherd about my poor shot than getting my 1st deer.
so after kicking myself and saying sorry too john we had some lunch, knocked a doe box up the went back out in the evening. we sat in another doe box for an hour or so. when it came darkish in the woods. john said if we went upto the fields at the top we would have another 10 mins light so ofF we set. we dropped straight on a big buck,young buck and a doe again(different farm)I was told too get down and take the shot. well after 5 mins, 4 different shooting postion and 3 very deep and heavy breaths i pulled the trigger. it dropped on the spot and most important BIT of all i heard GOOD SHOT RELOAD. so many thanks too john at yorkshire roe stalking, after waiting for one for ages two then turn up. cheers stav p.s. spelling and grammer i dunt do.lol
