I was out this morning and the only thing between me, and the 7 Red hinds was this sodding fence. Not a difficult thing to shoot across but..........
..... it might as well have been the Great Wall of China, it's the boundary between where I can shoot and where I can't. I was sat there for about 20 minutes waiting for one of them to leap over, but no, they chose to point their arses in my direction before they moved off in the general way they came. They may as well have stuck two hooves up at me
But on a positive note, I was out last evening somewhere else and had a Roe Buck come right up to see what I was (the ebay flektarn seems to work at close range) - and he's in season from tomorrow. Hooray!
